NEW YORK — U.S. ferrosilicon producers have asked the U.S. Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration (ITA) to extend by 135 days its final decision in a dumping investigation into ferrosilicon imports from Russia.

Russia was not assessed anti-dumping duties in the ITA’s preliminary decision in the case (, March 5). The final determination is currently due May 20

Russian producer RFA International LP was granted numerous extensions to its responses in the trade case, lawyers for domestic petitioners CC Metals & Alloys LLC, Calvert City, Ky., and Miami-based Globe Specialty Metals Inc. said in their request to the ITA.

“These extension requests have delayed the department’s access to the information needed to decide the issues raised by this investigation and have impeded the petitioners’ ability to comment on RFA International’s responses,” attorneys from Washington-based law firm DLA Piper LLP wrote.
