Anti-dumping duties on bone-in chicken imports were renewed against the UK, Germany and the Netherlands for an additional five years on 23 August 2021.
This followed an investigation by the International Trade Administration Commission (ITAC), which found that the expiry of anti-dumping duties could lead to material injury to the local poultry injury.
ITAC recommended for the duties to stay the same as when they were first imposed in 2015, at 30,09% for bone-in chicken imports from the UK, 22,81% for the Netherlands and 73,33% for Germany.
The sanctions will apply to all producers in the three countries, except for three producers in the UK and one in the Netherlands who were found to be unlikely to continue dumping.
