The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) believes that styrene-butadiene rubbers from Russia, the Czech Republic and Italy are sold in the country at a price below the fair price. Styrene-butadiene rubbers are used for the manufacture of automobile tires, rubber, cable and footwear industries.
“There is strong evidence that the US industry is being damaged by imports of styrene-butadiene rubbers from the Czech Republic, Italy and Russia, which are presumably sold in the US at below fair prices,” the regulator said in a statement. USITC will investigate further.
The draft anti-dumping measures are planned to be prepared by April 25, 2022. USITC will submit an investigation report after January 28, 2022.
