CF Industries seeks countervailing duty investigations into UAN imports from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago

CF Industries Holdings, Inc. has filed petitions with the US Department of Commerce and the US International Trade Commission requesting the initiation of antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of urea ammonium nitrate solutions (UAN) from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago.

CF Industries, which is the largest producer of UAN in the US, requested the investigations due to the harm it argues the domestic UAN industry has experienced from dumped and unfairly subsidised UAN imports from Russia and Trinidad.

“For too long, UAN producers in the United States, who are among the most efficient in the world, have competed on an uneven playing field due to dumped and unfairly subsidised imports from Russia and Trinidad,” said Tony Will, president and CEO, CF Industries Holdings, Inc. “The duties we are seeking will restore fairness to our highly competitive industry and help ensure that American UAN producers remain a reliable source of fertilizers for American farmers for years to come.”

In the coming weeks, the US Department of Commerce will decide whether to initiate investigations to determine the extent of dumping and unfair subsidies associated with imports from Russia and Trinidad and Tobago; and the US International Trade Commission will initiate a concurrent investigation to determine whether such imports materially injure the US industry.
