Acting on petitions filed by Schagrin Associates, the U.S. International Trade Commission on September 11, 2020 voted unanimously that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of methionine from France, Japan, and Spain. The value of methionine imports from these countries during 2019 exceeded $100 million. The Petitions were filed on behalf of Novus International, Inc., which is headquartered in St. Charles, Missouri.
As a result of this affirmative determination, the U.S. Department of Commerce will investigate the extent to which methionine imports from the three countries were dumped in the United States at less than fair value. The petitions alleged dumping at the rate of 16.17 percent ad valorem for imports from France, 104.23 percent from Japan, and 36.22 percent from Spain.
