Asters' International Trade team is pleased to congratulate Ukrainian agricultural industry with completion of the interim and expiry reviews of anti-dumping measures against imports of ammonium nitrate and cancellation of the measures being in place for more than 10 years.
The measures were introduced back in 2008 followed by a number of complex reviews and appeals, the most recent include WTO case Ukraine – Ammonium nitrate, and two reviews launched in 2019 and 2020. In its decision, the ICIT terminated the anti-dumping measures and both ongoing reviews.
