On 31 May 2009, the Turkish authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive safeguard duty imposed on imports of steam smoothing irons. The products subject to review are classified under HS code subheading 8516.40.10.00.00. The definitive safeguard duty was originally imposed in August 2006.

On 13 February 2010, the Turkish authorities extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good following the conclusion of a sunset review. The rate of duty is USD 3.5 per piece in the first year, USD 3.25 per piece in the second year and USD 3 per piece in the third year. The duty entered into force retrospectively on 10 August 2009 for a period of three years. A number of developing countries are exempt from duty. 

The duty expired on 10 August 2012.
