Calgon Carbon assigned average tariff rate of 7c as result of DOC determination Calgon Carbon announced that the Department of Commerce has determined the amount of antidumping tariffs to be assessed on imports of steam activated carbon from China that entered the United States between April 2, 2011 to March 31, 2012. The average tariff rate is 7c per lb. which replaces the average rate of 47c per lb. that had been in effect. Calgon Carbon was assigned the average tariff rate of 7c as a result of DOC antidumping rules that allow certain industry participants to request a review of a specific Chinese exporter. An industry participant had requested a review of Calgon Carbon’s Chinese exporting operation for the review period. The DOC chose to assign Calgon Carbon the average tariff rate instead of specifically examining the company’s Chinese export sales during the period. The company said, “We believe that these results show that the antidumping order continues to be effective. The revised antidumping tariffs, which are lower than the previous period of review, demonstrate that activated carbon from China was more fairly traded in the U.S. during the most recent review period. This is a positive sign for the industry. As for Calgon Carbon’s assigned tariff rate, it should have a minimal effect on our business.”
