Quartz Surface Products Subject to Anti-dumping
May 2, 2018

A petition was filed on April 17 that certain quartz surface products are being sold for less than fair value in the U.S. market and may be subject to anti-dumping and countervailing.  The alleged dumping margins have an average of 455% that reveals that the China prices are far less than companies producing quartz surface products in market economy.  

From the original article:

"The petitions will be investigated by the U.S. Department of Commerce and U.S. International Trade Commission.  If both agencies make affirmative determinations, preliminary relief from Chinese imports could be imposed in September 2018, with final duties imposed in June 2019."
