ANNOUNCEMENT 29 Dec 2011In December 2011, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-subsidy and a new anti-dumping investigation.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
For further information on the preliminary phase of the investigation see http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/731_ad_701_cvd/investigations/2011/wind_towers/prelimphase.htm.
Based on a petition filed on December 29, 2011, the U.S. International Trade Commission instituted anti-dumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of utility-scale wind towers. These include AD and CVD petitions against imports from China and an AD petition against imports from Vietnam.
Preliminary anti-dumping duties were imposed on 2 August 2012.
The Department of Commerce published on December 26, 2012 its final affirmative anti-dumping determinations for China (http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2012/1212frn/2012-30950.txt) and Vietnam (http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2012/1212frn/2012-30944.txt) and its final affirmative countervailing duty determination for China (http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2012/1212frn/2012-30947.txt). The U.S. International Trade Commission reached affirmative injury determinations on January 18, 2013, which will result in imposition of the AD and CVD orders.
