DOC Announces Affirmative Final CVD Determination For Argentina And Indonesia

On November 9, 2017, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) issued affirmative final determinations in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia.  Following a nine month investigation, DOC determined that Argentina and Indonesia are providing unfair subsidies to its producers of biodiesel at rates from 71.45 to 72.28 percent and 34.45 to 64.73 percent, respectively.  As a result, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) will collect cash deposits from importers of biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia based on the final rates.
 
Following DOC’s final determination, the International Trade Commission (ITC) will make its final determination within 45 days.  According to Argentine President Mauricio Macri, the Argentine government would appeal to the World Trade Organization (WTO) if the DOC follows through on the duties on Argentine biodiesel.
