Anti-subsidy

On March 28, 2018 GEO Specialty Chemicals, Inc., and Chattem Chemicals, Inc. filed petitions seeking the imposition of countervailing duties on glycine from China, India, and Thailand. The product is classified under HTS item 2922.49.43.00.

On May 11, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of glycine from India, Japan, and Thailand that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and glycine from China, India, and Thailand that are allegedly subsidized.

On August 28, 2018 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determinations in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of glycine from China and India, and the negative preliminary determination in the CVD investigation of imports of glycine from Thailand. The Department of Commerce found that exporters received countervailable subsidies ranging from China (144.01%), India (3.03-26.07%), and Thailand (0.00%). As a result, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of glycine from China and India based on these preliminary rates. Because of the negative preliminary determination for Thailand, Commerce will not instruct CBP to require cash deposits from importers of glycine from Thailand
