ANNOUNCEMENT 22 Apr 2009
In 2009, 2014, and 2019 the United States renewed an existing anti-dumping order.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
In a Federal Register notice published on April 22, 2009 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of malleable iron pipe fittings from China.
The original order was imposed on December 12, 2003, with the renewed order thus exceeding the five-year 'sunset' standard that generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTO agreements (i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).
On October 31, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping order on imports of malleable iron pipe fittings from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of this determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of these products from China will remain in place.
