Although extension of anti-dumping duties imposed on frozen bone-in poultry portions from the US would typically mean business as usual as these duties are rebated under the tariff rate quota, a current de-facto restriction on applying general tariff rebates to poultry imported under the TRQ makes the announcement more concerning than usual. South Africa has been applying anti-dumping duties to U.S. origin poultry since 2000 and is currently applying them on all other major exporting countries, except Argentina. The announcement from ITAC was made on April 17, 2024, based upon the recommendation from the Commission that the expiry of the anti-dumping duties on frozen bone-in chicken meat imported from the US would likely lead to the continuation and/or recurrence of dumping and the recurrence of material injury.
