Partner Paul C. Rosenthal was quoted in the Plastic News article “U.S. to levy duties on PET resin from Canada, China, India and Oman.” The U.S. International Trade Commission on March 31 voted 6-0 that PET imports from Canada, China, India and Oman are causing injury to the U.S. PET industry. As a result, anti-dumping duties now will be placed on PET imported from those nations. An anti-dumping complaint had been filed in March 2015 by PET makers DAK Americas LLC, M&G Group and Nan Ya Plastics Corp. The three companies are represented by Kelley Drye.
