Anti-dumping

On January 18, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping order on polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping orders against imports of polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan will remain in place. The original orders were imposed on May 25, 2000, 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 Antidumping Agreement). The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.40, 5503.20.00.45, 5503.20.00.60, and 5503.20.00.65.
