In brief

SECEX (Brazilian Secretariat of Foreign Trade) published on 07.31.2023 an official notice of initiation of a new investigation against Brazilian imports of gloves used for non-surgical procedures from MalaysiaThailand and China (Circular No. 27, dated of 07.28.2023).

The investigated product is mainly used for non-surgical medical, dental or veterinary procedures and is commonly classified in the sub-items of the Mercosur Common Nomenclature (NCM) 4015.12.00 and 3926.20.00. Previously, up to 03.31.2022, it was classified under the NCMs 4015.19.00 and 3926.20.00.

The full version of the official notice of initiation is available here.

Importance of interested parties’ participation

Active participation of importers, exporters and any other interested parties in the investigation may be decisive to ensure a more favorable final determination to the interested party in question. Interested parties can submit their applications to participate in the proceeding until August 21, 2023, provided that they demonstrate the extent to what they are affected by the measure in force.

Furthermore, interested parties may request the initiation of a public interest investigation to be conducted in parallel to the antidumping investigation. Within the scope of this related investigation, the authority will analyze, based on economic information and studies submitted by the parties, whether the extension of the antidumping duty in force is a measure that serves the public interest or whether its suspension or alteration would better serve such a purpose.
