ANNOUNCEMENT 05 Jun 2012
In June, 2012, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-dumping investigation; in October, 2018 the United States renewed the order.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
In a petition filed on June 5, 2012, a U.S. firm (CP Kelco U.S.) sought theimposition of anti-dumping duties on xanthan gum imported from China and Austria. This case ultimately led to the imposition of duties on imports from China but not Austria, as the U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative injury finding on June 20, 2013 only for China (see http://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2013/er0620ll2.htm).
On October 23, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of xanthan gum from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the affirmative determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
