United States : Hydrofluorocarbon Blends from China, But Not Components, Injure U.S. Industry, Says USITC.
The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today announced its determinations in its final phase antidumping duty investigation concerning hydrofluorocarbon blends and components from China.
The Commission found two domestic like products in this investigation and determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of hydrofluorocarbon blends from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value. The Commission further determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of hydrofluorocarbon components from China that Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value.
All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative with respect to hydrofluorocarbon blends from China and in the negative with respect to hydrofluorocarbon components from China.
As a result of the USITCs affirmative determination, the Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order on imports of hydrofluorocarbon blends from China. As a result of the Commissions negative determination, no orders will be issued on imports of hydrofluorocarbon components from China.
The Commission also made negative findings with respect to critical circumstances with regard to imports of hydrofluorocarbon blends from China. As a result, goods that entered the United States from China prior to February 1, 2016, will not be subject to retroactive antidumping duties (date is the date of the Department of Commerces affirmative preliminary determination).
