Foreign companies that price their products in the U.S. market below the cost of production or below prices in their home markets are subject to antidumping duties. Foreign companies that receive unfair subsidies from their governments—such as grants, loans, equity infusions, tax breaks, or production inputs—are subject to countervailing duties aimed at directly countering those subsidies.

As explained in today’s Commerce Department release:

  • Commerce made CVD findings only, with regard to imports of glycine from China, and determined that exporters from China received countervailable subsidies at a rate of 144.01%.
  • Commerce made AD and CVD findings with regard to imports of glycine from India, finding that exporters from India have sold glycine at less than fair value in the United States at rates of 7.75% to 10.86% and determined that exporters from India received countervailable subsidies at rates of 3.03% to 6.99%.
  • Commerce made AD findings only, with regard to imports of glycine from Japan, finding that exporters from Japan have sold glycine at less than fair value in the United States at rates of 53.66% to 86.22%.

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is currently scheduled to make its final injury determinations on or about June 10, 2019.

  • If the ITC makes affirmative final injury determinations, Commerce will issue AD and CVD orders.
  • If the ITC makes negative final determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated and no orders will be issued.
