Round-up export investigation


Corrs has been advising the China Chamber of Commerce of Metals, Minerals & Chemicals in relation to an application by Nufarm and Accensi for the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service to investigate the alleged dumping of formulated glyphosate imported into Australia from China.

Formulated glyphosate is a weed killer and is marketed in Australia under a variety of names, including Round Up. The China Chamber of Commerce represents, among others, Chinese exporters of glyphosate.

Following an initial investigation by Customs, a review by the Trade Measures Review Officer, and a re-investigation by Customs, the investigation was ultimately terminated, and no anti-dumping measures imposed on exports from our client’s members.
