Urea antidumping duty continues against Russia, Ukraine
Nov. 21, 2011
The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) earlier this week determined the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of solid urea from Russia and Ukraine will remain in place.
The commission announced it had found that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on solid urea from Russia and Ukraine would likely lead to “continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.”
The vote was four versus two in favor of keeping the antidumping order in place. This was a full review. It was a five-year (sunset) review as required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act under the World Trade Organization agreements.
The commission previously requested responses from interested parties and conducted a public hearing as part of a full review instead of doing an “expedited review.” It was noted that “domestic group responses” were much more than the “respondent group responses.”
