Anti-dumping

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 steel wire garment hangers. These include AD and CVD petitions against imports from Vietnam and an AD petition against imports from Taiwan (also known as Chinese Taipei).
The Department of Commerce published on December 10, 2012 its AD order on Taiwan (http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2012/1212frn/2012-29765.txt), and published its final AD and CVD findings against Vietnam. The U.S. International Trade Commission reached its affirmative injury determination against Vietnam on January 16, 2013 (http://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2013/er0116ll1.htm), which will result in imposition of the AD and CVD orders.

Anti-dumping

On May 3, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of steel wire garment hangers from Taiwan and Vietnam and the existing countervailing duty order on imports of these products from Vietnam 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 and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from Taiwan and Vietnam will remain in place.
