ANNOUNCEMENT 29 Jul 2009In July 2009, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-subsidy and a new anti-dumping investigation.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
In addition to the sources hyperlinked in the description above, data on the petitioners and their claims were obtained directly from the petitions. Several other documents related to the investigation may be reached at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/731_ad_701_cvd/investigations/2009/magnesia_carbon_bricks/prelimphase.htm.
In a vote on January 5, 2016 the U.S. International Trade Commission renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders on certain magnesia carbon bricks imported from China and Mexico.
In a series of petitions filed on July 29, 2009, one U.S. firm sought the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of magnesia carbon bricks from China, and of anti-dumping duties on imports of this product from Mexico.
The Department of Commerce found margins of 128.10-236.0% (dumping) and 24.24-253.87% (subsidy) for China, and a dumping margin of 57.9% for Mexico, and on August 26, 2010 the U.S. International Trade Commission reached a final affirmative injury determination. As a result, the AD and CVD orders went into effect.
