USITC Votes to Continue Investigations of Quartz from India and Turkey
On June 24, 2019, the U.S. International Trade Commission determined 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.
With this unanimous vote, the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on such imports will continue.
The U.S. Department of Commerce is expected to issue its preliminary calculations of the dumping and subsidization rates on August 1, 2019.
These investigations began upon petitions filed by Schagrin Associates on behalf of Cambria, a family-owned producer of natural stone surfaces located in Le Sueur, Minnesota. Earlier this year, Schagrin Associates secured triple-digit AD/CVD duties on imports of quartz surface products from China.
