On March 31, 2017 North American Steel & Wire, Inc. and ISM Enterprises Commodity filed a petition seeking the imposition of antidumping duties on U.S. imports of carton-closing staples from China. These goods are classified under HTS items 8305.20.0000 and 7317.00.6560. The first step in this investigation was the preliminary injury determination by the U.S. International Trade Commission, which it reached on May 12, 2017.
On October 30, 2017, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination. Commerce calculated a preliminary dumping rate of 13.74 percent for mandatory respondent Shanghai Yueda Nails Co., Ltd. Commerce has preliminarily assigned to the China-wide entity a dumping margin of 58.93 percent, based on adverse facts available.
On March 22, 2018 the Department of Commerce announced the affirmative final determination in the antidumping duty investigation of imports of carton-closing staples from China. Commerce determined that exporters from China sold carton-closing staples in the United States at 115.65–263.40 percent less than fair value. As a result of the decision, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of carton-closing staples based on the final rates.
On April 18, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of carton-closing staples from China that the U.S. Department of Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the USITC’s affirmative determination, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China.
