Since November 2011, the US government has repeatedly renewed anti-dumping duties on certain bars and wedges from China.
On November 29, 2016 the U.S. International Trade Commission determinedthat revoking the existing anti-dumping duty order on heavy forged handtools from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrenceof material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
In a Federal Register notice published on August 22, 2011 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of heavy forged hand tools bars and wedges from China. The original order was imposed on February 19, 1991, 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).
