anti-dumping review investigation

Imports of plywood originating in China are the subject of a review investigation, initiated as of yesterday, and remain subject to the anti-dumping measure which was provisionally maintained after its expiry on 26 July. This decision follows a request on this subject filed with the Ministry of Industry and Trade by Cema Bois de l’Atlas, a Moroccan plywood producer. After examination of this request, the ministry concluded that it satisfies the conditions of admissibility fixed by the national legislation and that the data which it brings are sufficient to justify the opening of a re-examination investigation. Consequently, the definitive anti-dumping duty applied to these imports at a rate of 25% is temporarily maintained, pursuant to a joint order of the Minister of Industry and Trade and the Minister of the Economy and finance.

This duty will be maintained in the form of a deposit pending the results of the review of the anti-dumping measure, specifies a circular from Customs. This measure takes effect from July 27. It should be recalled that the government had decided in June 2018 (decision published in the BO of July 26, 2018) to renew the anti-dumping duty of 25% against plywood imported from China, until July 26, 2022. The decision to renew the anti-dumping tax follows a petition filed in 2018 by Cema Bois de l’Atlas. The investigation carried out by the services of the Department of Commerce had concluded that there had been dumping practices by Chinese exporters, with a dumping margin of around 68%, which had caused significant damage to this branch of national production. It should also be remembered that the initial investigation was introduced by the supervisory ministry in early May 2011, following a request submitted to the ministry on March 23, 2011 by Cema Bois de l’Atlas.
