U.S. launches anti-dumping investigation on imports of sodium sulfate anhydrous from Canada
The United States International Trade Commission began a preliminary phase antidumping duty investigation on imports of sodium sulfate anhydrous from Canada that are alleged to be sold in the United States at less than fair value.
The investigations are in response to a petition filed on March 28, 2019, by manufacturers in Texas, New Jersey and Kansas.
The Commission’s investigation will determine whether there is a reasonable indication that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury, or the establishment of an industry in the United States is materially retarded, by reason of imports of the subject goods from Canada.
Under U.S. law the Commission must reach a preliminary determination in antidumping duty investigations in 45 days, or in this case by May 13, 2019.
The U.S. Department of Commerce will then, if applicable, determine the amounts by which the goods are dumped.
