Anti-dumping

On December 27, 2017 a U.S. firm (Berwick Offray, LLC) filed a petition seeking the imposition of countervailing and antidumping duties on certain plastic decorative ribbon imported from China. These products are classified under HTSUS items 3920.20.0015 and 3926.40.0010 and may also enter under HTSUS 3920.10.0000, 3920.30.0000, 3920.43.5000, 3920.49.0000, 3920.62.0020, 3920.62.0050, 3920.62.0090, 3920.69.0000, 3921.90.1100, 3921.90.1500, 3921.90.1910, 3921.90.1950, 3921.90.4010, 3921.90.4090, 4926.90.9905, 3926.90.9910, 3926.90.9925, 3926.90.9930, 3926.90.9996, 5404.90.0000 ,9505.90.4000, 4601.99.9000, 4602.90.0000, 5609.00.3000, 5609.00.4000, and 9505.10.2500.

On February 9, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of plastic decorative ribbon from China that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations.

On July 31, 2018 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation of imports of certain plastic decorative ribbon from China. Commerce preliminarily determined that exporters from China have been found dumping certain plastic decorative ribbon in the United States at margins ranging from 45.16 to 370.04 percent. As a result of today’s decision, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of certain plastic decorative ribbon from China based on these preliminary rates.

On December 21, 2018 the Department of Commerce announced the affirmative final determinations in the AD investigation, finding that exporters have sold plastic decorative ribbon at less than fair value in the United States at rates ranging from 54.21 to 370.04 percent. Upon publication of the final affirmative determination, Commerce instructed U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits equal to the applicable final weighted-average dumping margins.

On February 26, 2019 the USITC determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of these imports. As a result of the affirmative determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from China.
