The American HFC Coalition has filed an anti-circumvention petition with the Department of Commerce (DoC) for the blend R-410B and certain custom hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) blends produced in China. 

The DoC agreed to initiate a new inquiry on June 30, 2023. 

Previously, the DoC found that “unfinished” blends of R-32 and R-125 from China were circumventing the existing antidumping orders in place since 2016. Customers should continue to purchase their products from a reputable refrigerant producer, such as Arkema.  Additional information regarding this petition can be found in this recent press release from the American HFC Coalition and in coverage from The Cooling Post.

The notice by the International Trade Administration can be found here.
