Commerce Initiates Antidumping And Countervailing Duty Investigations On Pentafluoroethane (R-125) From China

Husch Blackwell LLP

On February 2, 2021, the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) announced the initiation of antidumping (“AD”) and countervailing duty (“CVD”) investigations on pentafluoroethane (R-125) from China. The petitioner in this case is Honeywell International, Inc. See our previous post summarizing the petition for details on the scope of the investigations and for lists of the importers and exporters named in the petition.

The International Trade Commission (“ITC”) is currently scheduled to make its preliminary determinations on or before February 26, 2021. If the ITC determines that there is reasonable indication that imports of R-125 materially injure or threaten the U.S. domestic industry, the investigation will continue and Commerce will be scheduled to announce its preliminary CVD determination on April 7, 2021 and its preliminary AD determination on June 21, 2021. If the ITC’s determinations are negative—finding that imports of R-125 do not pose a risk of injury to the domestic industry—the investigations will be terminated.
