The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of polytetrafluoroethylene resin from China and India that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the government of India.
Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent voted in the affirmative.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about December 22, 2017, and its antidumping duty determinations due on or about March 7, 2017.
The Commission’s public report Polytetrafluoroethylene Resin from China and India (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-588 and 731-TA-1392-1393 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4741, November 2017) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
The report will be available after December 11, 2017; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
