ANNOUNCEMENT 01 Mar 2012In March 2012, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-subsidy and a new anti-dumping investigation.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
Based on the petition and information at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/731_ad_701_cvd/investigations/2012/drawn_stainless_steel_sinks/prelimphase.htm.
On March 1, 2012 the Elkay Manufacturing Company filed a joint anti-dumping and countervailing duty petition against stainless steel sinks imported from China. The Department of Commerce published its anti-dumping order and its countervailing duty order on April 11, 2013.
This filing came shortly after Canada took action against the same product from the same country (see http://www.globaltradealert.org/measure/canada-final-dumping-and-subsidy-findings-against-stainless-steel-sinks-china).
