ITC Votes to Impose Duties on Methionine from Spain and Japan
The U.S. International Trade Commission today voted unanimously that unfairly traded imports of methionine from Spain and Japan caused material injury to U.S. producers of methionine.
As a result of this determination, the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders lasting for at least five years. Pursuant to these orders – and an antidumping duty order on imports of methionine from France issued in May – importers will need to pay cash deposits of 43.82 percent on methionine from France, 37.53 percent on imports of methionine from Spain, and 76.50 percent on imports from Japan.
Schagrin Associates filed petitions alleging that methionine from France, Japan, and Spain were being dumped in the United States in July 2020. The petitions were filed on behalf of Novus International, Inc., which is headquartered in St. Charles, Missouri.
The value of methionine imports from the three target countries exceeded $125 million during 2020.
