Anti-subsidy

On June 2, 2017 three firms (Archer Daniels Midland Company, Cargill, Incorporated, and Tate & Lyle Ingredients Americas LLC) filed a countervailing duty petition on imports of citric acid and certain citrate salts from Thailand. The subject goods are classifiable under HTSUS 2918.14.0000, 2918.15.1000, 2918.15.5000, and 3824.99.9295.

On July 14, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission reached affirmative preliminary injury determinations.

On October 31, 2017, the Department of Commerce announced its negative preliminary determination in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of citric acid and certain citrate salts from Thailand.

On May 30, 2018 the Department of Commerce announced the final determinations. Commerce determined that Thailand is providing countervailable subsidies to its producers of citric acid and certain citrate salts at rates ranging from 0 – 0.21 percent, which are de minimis, therefore this investigation will be terminated.
