Washington did not impose duties on Russian rubber

9 декабря 2022, 06:39
The United States International Trade Commission has announced that it will not impose anti-dumping duties on styrene-butadiene rubber from Russia and the Czech Republic. The sale of these products in the United States at current prices does not cause material damage to the country's industry.

Earlier, the US Department of Commerce complained that rubber from Russia and the Czech Republic was sold in the US "at a price below fair". But the head of the commission, David Johanson, as well as three of its members, voted against the imposition of duties. Another commissioner did not participate in the voting. Anti-dumping duties on rubber will not be introduced.

It should be noted that these rubbers are used for the production of car tires, and in the rubber, cable and shoe industries. Last year, the commission considered that rubbers from Russia, the Czech Republic and Italy are sold in the country at too low a price. An investigation was carried out, the results of which have now been made public.

In April, Britain, following the EU countries, introduced restrictions on the import of rubber from Russia.
