ARTICLE 55: ADJUSTMENT FOR DIFFERENCES IN QUANTITIES

     

    The Ministry (RLCE: Art. 1) will adjust the normal value for differences in quantities regarding to the export price according to the following criteria:

  • When prices vary inversely regarding to the quantities sold, either in terms of individual transactions or accumulated volumes per customer, both the normal value and the export price must be estimated on the basis of operations for similar quantities. In these cases, the margin of price discrimination should correspond to the weighted average margin of the specific margins for each stratum;
  •  

  • When prices vary inversely regarding to the quantities sold, either in terms of individual transactions or accumulated volumes per customer, and some internal sales will not serve as similar quantities to those of export sales, the normal value shall be calculated on all internal sales, once the differences between internal prices derived from differences in quantities have been canceled. In particular, the prices of internal sales not comparable to export sales will be equal to comparable internal sales prices by adjusting the difference between the two;
  •  

  • When the exporter request to taken into account the adjustments foreseen in any of the two previous sections, the following rules will apply:
  •  

  • Internal sales comparable to export sales should be regular and representative of the market in the country of origin. For the purposes of this article, regular sales shall mean those that have been made on a recurring basis during the investigation period, and
  •  

  • The price scheme differentiated by quantities must be consistently implemented, so internal sales should not be observed during the investigation period whose prices are inconsistent with that scheme.
  • When the methods of adjustment for quantities provided for in Sections I and II of this article are not practicable, the Ministry may make the adjustment according to the facts of which it is aware and based on the available information.
