EU imposes provisional anti-dumping duty on U.S. peroxosulphates.
After receiving a complaint from the European Chemical Industry Council (CEFIC) in May 2006, the Commission of the European Union began an investigation of imports of peroxosulphates (persulphates) from the U.S., China and Taiwan. The chemical, paper and textile industries commonly use these chemicals as initiators and oxidizing agents. The affected U.S. producers are E. I. DuPont de Nemours and FMC Corporation. For these producers, the Commission established a Dumping Margin of 28.3 % and 84.1 % respectively. The corresponding provisional duty rates are 10.6 % and 39 % respectively. Citation: Commission Regulation (EC) No 390/2007, 2007 O. J. of the European Union (L 97) 6, April 12, 2007.
