BREAKING: Schagrin Associates Helps Secure Unanimous Vote at USITC in Acetone AD Investigations
The U.S. International Trade Commission ("USITC") today unanimously voted that a U.S. domestic industry is materially injured by unfairly traded imports of acetone from Singapore and Spain. This vote concludes the final phase of the USITC’s antidumping duty investigation on acetone from Singapore and Spain.
The case was initiated in February 2019 upon petitions filed by Schagrin Associates and co-counsel for the Coalition for Fair Acetone Trade, which includes AdvanSix Inc., Altivia Petrochemicals, LLC, and Olin Corporation. In 2018, imports of acetone from Singapore and Spain were valued at an estimated $8.5 million and $17 million, respectively.
As a result of today's final vote, the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue an antidumping order on acetone from Singapore with duties ranging between 66.42 and 131.75 percent and an antidumping order on acetone from Spain with duties ranging between 137.39 and 171.81 percent.
