Barnes/Richardson Secures Victory in Mexican AD Case

April 14, 2011

On April 14, 2011, the U.S. International Trade Commission announced that it had reached a negative determination with respect to Mexico in the sunset review of Purified Carboxymethylcellulose (CMC) from Finland, Mexico, the Netherlands, and Sweden.  Barnes, Richardson & Colburn represented the sole Mexican producer of Purified CMC in the review.   As a result of the Commission’s determination, the antidumping order on Mexico will be revoked. 

The Commission reached affirmative determinations with respect to Finland and the Netherlands and the antidumping orders will remain in place for those countries.  The Commission also reached a negative determination with respect to Sweden, which no longer had any production of Purified CMC and for which the domestic industry did not seek continuation of the order.
