Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation on Imports of
Dioxide from Canada
On November 10, the Department of Commerce announced its decision to
initiate an antidumping duty investigation on
liquid sulfur dioxide from Canada.
Next Steps: The International
Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to make its preliminary injury determination
on or about December 9. If the ITC determines that there is a reasonable
indication that imports from Canada are injuring or threatening material
injury to the domestic industry, the investigation will continue and the
Department will make its preliminary antidumping duty determination in
March 2006. If the ITC makes a negative preliminary injury determination,
the investigation will be terminated.
Petitioners: The petition requesting
this investigation was filed by Calabrian Corporation of Texas.
Product Description: The
merchandise covered by this investigation is technical or commercial grade
and refrigeration grade liquid sulfur dioxide of a minimum 99.98 percent
assay. Sulfur dioxide is identified by the chemical formula SO2.
The CAS No. for sulfur dioxide is 7446-09-5. Liquid sulfur dioxide is
pure sulfur dioxide gas compressed through refrigeration and stored under
pressure. Sulfur dioxide in its gaseous state is excluded from the petition.
Liquid sulfur dioxide
subject to this investigation is currently classifiable under subheading
2811.23.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).
While the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes,
the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.
