We inform that SECEX initiated, through Circular No. 15 of April 29, 2024, an investigation to verify the existence of dumping in China's exports to Brazil of rutile-type titanium dioxide pigments, commonly classified under subitem 3206.11.10 of the Common Mercosur Nomenclature - NCM, and injury to the domestic industry resulting from this practice.

The relative dumping margin, for the purposes of initiating the investigation, is 66.3%.

The normal value was determined based on the price of the similar product in a third country considered to be a market economy. The market economy country chosen was the USA, and parties may express their opinions on the choice of the third country, and if they do not agree with it, they may suggest an alternative third country, provided that the suggestion is duly justified and accompanied by the respective evidence. The deadline for such comments is July 9, 2024.

Selected exporters and importers will receive questionnaires from DECOM, which are not yet available, and will have 30 days to respond, with the possibility of an extension for an additional 30 days if requested.

Other parties have until May 20, 2024, to apply for their qualification as interested parties in the process.
