Anti-dumping

In a vote on April 28, 2015 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing anti-dumping duty orders on polyvinyl alcohol from China and Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. The commission further determined that revoking the existing anti-dumping duty order on polyvinyl alcohol from Korea would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, the existing orders on imports of this product from China and Japan will remain in place but the existing order on imports of this product from Korea will be revoked.
The original orders were imposed in 2003, with the renewed orders thus exceeding the five-year 'sunset' standard that generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTO agreements (i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).
