The United States is one of the most active countries in investigating so-called “unfair pricing” in the form of dumping or subsidization by foreign countries. In the past three years, the United States has initiated five investigations against imports from Brazil, having very recently initiated a case involving brass rods. Brazilian producers/exporters should be aware of the US activity in the antidumping and anti-subsidy space and, where there is a risk of such an action targeting a company’s exports from Brazil to the United States, consider taking steps to prepare in advance and implement a global trade remedies compliance, prevention, and action strategy.
