USA: Refrigerant manufacturer Mexichem says it is considering appealing the US decision not to impose duties on Chinese R134a.9006603_l

The announcement comes after the United States International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that the US industry is not harmed by imports of R134a from China.

The ruling runs counter to the US Department of Commerce’s proposed final resolution in October which stated that imports of R134a from China should be subject to antidumping duties of 280.67% and countervailing duties averaging 11.14%.

Based on currently available information, Mexichem says it is considering appealing this ruling by the USITC.
