WASHINGTON—The U.S. International Trade Commission has voted to conduct a full sunset review of emulsion styrene-butadiene rubber imports from Brazil, South Korea, Mexico and Poland.
The duties were originally imposed in July 2017 following a petition by Lion Elastomers L.L.C. and East-West Copolymers.
In a vote Nov. 4, the commission agreed to conduct a review of the duties, but no dates have been announced for the probe, according to the ITC website.
The initial dumping rates, set in 2017, ranged from 9.66 percent to 44.3 percent for a number of rubber suppliers, including Korea's LG Chem Ltd. and Kumho Petrochemical Co. Ltd., Poland's Synthos S.A., Arlanxeo Brasil S.A. and Mexico's Negromex S.A. de C.V. – Planta Altamira.
Dates for the institution of the review are expected in early 2023.
