Commerce Finds Triple-Digit Dumping and Subsidization In Prelim Phase of Cherry Investigation
Acting on petitions filed by Schagrin Associates on behalf of the Dried Tart Cherry Trade Committee, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) today announced preliminary antidumping and countervailing duties on dried tart cherries from Turkey. The preliminary antidumping duty rates range from 541.29% to 648.35%, while the preliminary countervailing duty rate is 204.93%.
The Dried Tart Cherry Trade Committee is an ad-hoc association whose members represent the majority of U.S. production of dried tart cherries.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (“USITC”) found a reasonable indication that the U.S. industry producing dried tart cherries is materially injured by subject imports on June 6. If the USITC votes in the affirmative in the final phase of its investigation and Commerce continues to find countervailable subsidies and dumping in its final determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders.
