Chile: Safeguard Investigation on Imports of Powdered Milk and Gouda Cheese

On Thursday, March 8, 2018, Chile’s Commission on Markets Distortion (CNDP) published its decision to initiate a safeguard investigation on imports of powdered milk and Gouda cheese that will determine if the increase of dairy imports, specifically whole dry milk, non-fat dry milk, and Gouda cheese, represents a threat to Chile’s domestic dairy sector. While the investigation does not target the United States, if safeguards are imposed on non-fat dry milk, the U.S. will be impacted the most, as it holds 76 percent of market share and reached $25.6 million in exports in 2017.
