ANNOUNCEMENT 09 Jul 2019
The petition was filed by three firms.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
On July 9, 2019 three firms (Advanced Extrusion, Inc., Ex-Tech Plastics, Inc., and Multi-Plastics Extrusions, Inc.) filed petitions seeking the imposition of antidumping duties on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) sheet from Korea, Mexico, and Oman. Subject goods are currently classified under HTSUS 3920.62.0090.
On September 10, 2019 the United States International Trade Commission determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of these imports from Korea and Oman, but that imports of this product from Mexico are negligible. The U.S. Department of Commerce will therefore continue with its antidumping duty investigations concerning imports of this product from Korea and Oman, but the commission's finding terminated the investigation concerning Mexico.
