ITA Delays Anti-Dumping Decision on Chinese Tile Until Sept.

Glen Ellyn, IL, July 9, 2019-At the request of the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ceramic Tile, the petitioner in both the countervailing duty and anti-dumping cases involving ceramic tile from China, the International Trade Administration (ITA) has postponed its preliminary determination on countervailing duty until September 6. 

The reasons for the Coalition's request centered on the coalition's claims that the case involves complicated issues, and that further information needs to be developed regarding the Chinese government subsidies to their ceramic tile manufacturers, necessitating additional time for review by the International Trade Administration. 

The preliminary determination regarding the anti-dumping claim is expected on September 17.
