UPDATE #3: DOC’s Final Determination on Ripe Olives from Spain

The Department of Commerce (DOC) has made a final determination in the countervailing duty investigation and found that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of ripe olives in Spain. DOC conducted the verification of the information submitted by the European Commission, the Government of Spain and the three mandatory respondents (Spanish ripe olives producers). At the end of the process the DOC has determined that there is a subsidy, or a financial contribution by an “authority” that “gives rise to a benefit to the recipient and that such subsidy is specific”, giving advantage to Spanish ripe olive producers over domestic producers on the US market.

These are the final countervailable subsidy rates:

Exporter/producer Subsidy rate %

27.02

Agro Sevilla Aceitunas S.COOP.

7.52

Angel Camacho Alimentacion S.L.

13.22

In addition to the above countervailing duty rates the following antidumping duty rates will apply:
