Final anti-dumping duties on frozen chicken imported from Germany, Netherlands, and the United Kingdom

The anti-dumping sunset review investigation on frozen bone-in chicken imported from Germany, Netherlands, and UK has been finalised. When an anti-dumping duty is imposed, it remains in place for 5 years, however, it is reviewed towards the end of this period. If no sunset review investigation is initiated, the anti-dumping duties will lapse.

An investigation will initiate after domestic manufacturers or producers of the subject products submit an application to ITAC.

This is what happened in this case, the South African Poultry Association (SAPA) submitted an application and an investigation was consequently initiated.

The anti-dumping duties below are being implemented from today, 23 August 2021. The products are classified under tariff subheading 0207.14.90.
