Anti-dumping

In a petition filed on July 9, 2009, one U.S. firm sought the imposition of anti-dumping duties on imports of woven electric blankets from China. The United States imported $25.9 million worth of this product from China in 2008.
The Department of Commerce found dumping margins of 77.75-174.85%, and the U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative final injury determination on July 28, 2010. As a result, the AD order went into effect.
China was being treated as a non-market economy (NME) in the AD investigation, making it subject to a special investigative methodology under which price comparisons are made not between prices in the United States versus prices in China, but instead between prices in the United States versus prices in another country (known as the 'surrogate'). In this instance the petitioner has requested that India be used as the surrogate country.
