Petitions Filed Requesting the Imposition of Antidumping Duties on Imports of Dioctyl Terephthalate from Taiwan, Turkey, Malaysia, and Poland

Case Summary

On March 26, 2024, Eastman Chemical Company filed a petition for the imposition of antidumping duties on the imports of Dioctyl Terephthalate from Taiwan, Turkey, Malaysia, and Poland.  The petition alleges dumping margins of 83.70% to 136.20% (Taiwan), 34.83% to 70.97% (Turkey), 59.33% (Malaysia), and 60.10% (Poland).  The petition identifies certain foreign producers/exporters and U.S. importers of the investigated product.

The merchandise covered by these investigations is dioctyl terephthalate (“DOTP”), regardless of form. 2 DOTP has the general chemical formulation C6 H4 (C8 H17 COO)2 and a chemical name of “bis (2-ethylhexyl) terephthalate” and has a Chemical Abstract Service (CAS) registry number of 6422–86–2. DOTP that has been blended with other products is included within this scope when such blends include constituent parts that have not been chemically reacted with each other to produce a different product. The petition provides additional detailed scope description and specific product exclusions.

The projected date of International Trade Commission’s Preliminary Conference is April 16, 2024.  The earliest theoretical date for retroactive suspension of liquidation for AD is June 4, 2024.
