Where in the final anti-dumping regulations are oxygenate blenders excluded from the antidumping requirements?

Although oxygenate blenders have been considered refiners under previous EPA programs, they have been defined separately from refiners under § 80.2 for the purpose of specific requirements under the RFG program.

The regulations specify that only refiners and importers are subject to the anti-dumping requirements. Therefore, oxygenate blenders are excluded from the anti-dumping requirements to the extent that they exclusively add oxygenate, and not other blendstocks such as raffinate, etc.(7/1/94)
