Anti-dumping

On January 30, 2018 Alliance Rubber Company filed petitions seeking the imposition of antidumping duties on rubber bands imported from China, Sri Lanka, and Thailand. The U.S. International Trade Commission reached a preliminary injury determination on March 15, 2018.

On August 30, 2018 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty investigations of imports of rubber bands from China and Thailand, finding that exporters have dumped rubber bands in the United States at margins of 27.27 percent for China, and from 0.00 to 5.86 percent for Thailand. As a result of this decision, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of rubber bands from China and Thailand based on these preliminary rates.

On November 14, 2018 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative final determinations in the AD and CVD investigations of imports of rubber bands from China. Commerce determined that exporters from China have sold rubber bands at less than fair value in the United States at a rate of 27.27 percent. Commerce determined that exporters from China received countervailable subsidies at a rate of 125.77 percent. Upon publication of the final affirmative AD determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits equal to the applicable final weighted-average dumping margins. Further, as a result of the affirmative final CVD determination, if the U.S. International Trade Commission makes an affirmative injury determination, Commerce will instruct CBP to resume collection of CVD cash deposits equal to the applicable subsidy rates.
