• The US Department of Commerce (USDOC) has announced preliminary anti-dumping tariff margin rates against Chinese and Austrian xanthan gum exporters covering all xanthan gum imports into the US. The action followed the US International Trade Commission’s unanimous vote in August 2012 that injury had occurred to domestic producers of xanthan gum because of low-priced Austrian and Chinese products being sold into the US market.
US Customs and Border Protection began collecting cash deposits equal to the assigned margins, as published in the Federal Register, on Jan. 7, 2013.
