SINGAPORE (ICIS)--The US Commerce Department imposed preliminary anti-subsidy duties on imports of trichloroisocyanuric acid (TCCA) from China on 12 February, China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) said late on Thursday.

Two Chinese producers will be imposed duties of 18.57% and 1.55% respectively, and others will be levied at 10.06%, according to a statement from China's MOC.

The US Commerce Department is expected to complete its anti-subsidy investigation on 30 June, the MOC said.

The US International Trade Commission (ITC) will then make a final determination of the market damage on 12 August. If injury by China’s imports exists, the US Commerce Department will launch anti-subsidy duties order on 19 August, the MOC added.

TCCA is widely used as bactericidal agent and decoloriser.
