The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) determined June 24 that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of quartz surface products from India and Turkey that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.
Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Meredith M. Broadbent, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Jason E. Kearns voted in the affirmative.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of this product from India and Turkey, with its preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on or about August 1, 2019, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about October 15, 2019.
The Commission’s public report Quartz Surface Products from India and Turkey (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-624-625 and 731-TA-1450-1451 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4919, July 2019) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
The report will be available after July 22, 2019; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: https://www.usitc.gov/commission_publications_library.
