In its 7 February 2019 judgment (CIV-2018-485-000611) the High Court quashed the 8 February 2018 decision of the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs to terminate anti-dumping duty in relation to Chinese preserved peaches (New Zealand Gazette, 14 February 2018, Notice No. 2018-go696).
In accordance with the High Court judgment and pursuant to section 14(8) of the Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act 1988 (as at July 2017) the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment reconsidered its sunset review of the justification for the imposition of anti-dumping duty in relation to Chinese preserved peaches. The reconsideration concluded that the imposition of anti-dumping duties is not necessary to prevent a continuation and recurrence of dumping and a recurrence of material injury attributable to dumping to the New Zealand industry producing the subject goods.
Pursuant to section 14(7) of the Dumping and Countervailing Duties Act 1988, on the basis of the reconsideration the Minister of Commerce and Consumer Affairs hereby terminates the anti-dumping duties imposed on the subject goods described in the Schedule to this notice, with effect from 17 July 2017.
