CAMPINAS, Brazil (ICIS)--Brazil's Chamber of Foreign Trade (Camex) has approved definitive anti-dumping duties on Germany and US ethanolamines imports for up to five years, it said on Monday.

The imports tariffs will be applied over the price of the imports.

Germany-based ethanolamines producers will have to pay a 41.2% imports tariff over the price of the chemical, Camex said.

The imports tariffs for US companies range from 7.4-59.3% more than the price of the chemical, the agency said.

The anti-dumping duties will not hit diethanolamines (DEA) imports, Camex said.

In making the decision, the Brazil agency said it had found dumping practices in the imports of ethanolamines from Germany and the US that were hurting Brazilian producers.

Earlier this year, Camex approved provisional anti-dumping duties on ethanolamines from the US and Germany.
