ANNOUNCEMENT 05 Jun 2009In June 2009, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-subsidy and a new anti-dumping investigation.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
In addition to the sources hyperlinked in the description above, data on the petitioners and their claims were obtained directly from the petition. Several other documents related to the investigation may be reached at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/731_ad_701_cvd/investigations/2009/wire_decking/prelimphase.htm.
In a petition filed on June 5, 2009, four U.S. firms seek the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of wire decking from China. Neither the value of imports nor estimates of the dumping or subsidy rates are given in the public version of the petition. The case ended in the final affirmative injury phase of the U.S. International Trade Commission investigation. The commission's negative finding in this investigation on July 1, 2010 meant that no orders were put into effect. The Department of Commerce had earlier found margins of 437.11% (subsidy) and 16-143% (dumping).
