Anti-dumping

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).
