Washington, DC – The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) from France, Korea, and Mexico that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value.
Chair Jason E. Kearns, Vice Chair Randolph J. Stayin, and Commissioners David S. Johanson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue its investigations of imports of acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (NBR) from France, Korea, and Mexico, with its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about December 7, 2021.
The Commission’s public report Acrylonitrile-Butadiene Rubber (NBR) from France, Korea, and Mexico (Inv. Nos. 731-TA-1567-1569 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 5227, August 2021) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
The report will be available after September 13, 2021.
