Petitions Filed Requesting the Imposition of Antidumping and Countervailing Duties on Imports of Certain Pea Protein from China

On July 12, 2013, PURIS Proteins LLC, d/b/a PURIS filed petitions for the imposition of antidumping (AD) and countervailing duties (CVD) on imports of certain pea protein from China.  The petition alleges dumping margins of 23.86% to 291.74%. The petition identifies certain foreign producers/exporters and U.S. importers of the investigated product.

The product subject to these investigations is high protein content (“HPC”) pea protein, which is a protein derived from peas (including, but not limited to, yellow field peas and green field peas) and which contains more than 65 percent protein on a dry weight basis. HPC pea protein may also be identified as, for example, pea protein concentrate, pea protein isolate, hydrolyzed pea protein, pea peptides, and fermented pea protein. Pea protein, including HPC pea protein, has the Chemical Abstracts Service (“CAS”) registry number 222400-29-5. The petition provides additional detailed scope descriptions.

The merchandise covered by the scope are currently classified under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (“HTSUS”) categories 3504.00.1000, 3504.00.5000, and 2106.10.0000. Such merchandise may also enter the U.S. market under HTSUS category 2308.00.9890. Although HTSUS categories and the CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the investigation is dispositive.

The projected date of International Trade Commission’s Preliminary Conference is August 2, 2023.  The earliest theoretical date for retroactive suspension of liquidation for AD is September 20, 2023; and for CVD is August 1, 2023.
