(ii)    Sunset review of the anti-dumping duties applied to the imports of pre-sensitized offset aluminum printing plates (NCMs 3701.30.21 e 3701.30.31) from the United States and China. This review was initiated by the SECEX Circular N. 49 on October 4th, 2012.

(iii)   Sunset review of the anti-dumping duties applied to the imports of eyeglass frames, with or without lenses (NCMs 9003.11.00, 9003.19.10, 9004.90.10 e 9004.90.90), from China. This review was initiated by the SECEX Circular N. 50 on October 4th, 2012.

(iv)   Sunset review of the anti-dumping duties applied to the imports of one piece (fauber) cranks for bicycles (NCM 8714.96.00) from China. This review was initiated by the SECEX Circular N. 51 on October 4th, 2012.

(v)    Sunset review of the anti-dumping duties applied to the imports of semi-rigid corrugated paperboard cartons with thicknesses equal or higher than 200g/m² (NCM 4810.12.90, 4810.29.00 e 4810.91.00) from Chile. This review was initiated by the SECEX Circular N. 52 on October 8th, 2012.

The anti-dumping investigations and the sunset reviews are carried out by DECOM and last approximately twelve months. The anti-dumping investigations may or may not result in the application of an anti-dumping duty to the investigated import, which will remain in force for 5 years. The sunset reviews may result in the maintenance of the duty at the same rate or at a different rate, or may result in the suspension of the antidumping duty.

The involvement of exporters and importers in these proceedings is highly recommended and may influence its final results.

The International Trade Department of Felsberg and Associates will be pleased to provide additional information regarding the investigation and sunset reviews mentioned above, as well as to assist foreign or Brazilian companies or class entities that are interested in participating in other trade remedy proceedings in Brazil.
