Anti-dumping

In a Federal Register notice published on July 26, 2011 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of paper clips from China. The original order was imposed on November 25, 1994, 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).

Anti-dumping

On August 8, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of paper clips from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place. because the original order was imposed on November 25, 1994, the renewed order exceeds 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).
