U.S. investigation of ceramic tile imported from China

U.S. investigation of ceramic tile imported from China

The U.S. Commerce Department announced new antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations to determine whether ceramic tile from China is being dumped in the United States and to determine if producers in China are receiving unfair subsidies.

According to a Commerce Department release, the alleged dumping margins for China range from 127.33% to 356.02% and Commerce reports that there are 45 subsidy programs in the China countervailing duty investigation—including lending programs, tax programs, and grant programs—in addition to provision of inputs, services, and land for less than adequate remuneration programs.

If Commerce makes affirmative findings in these investigations, and if the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) determines that dumped and/or unfairly subsidized U.S. imports of ceramic tile from China are causing injury to the U.S. industry, Commerce will impose duties on those imports in the amount of dumping and/or unfair subsidization found to exist.
