Anti-dumping

In a Federal Register notice published on September 30, 2011 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan. The original order was imposed on May 25, 2000, 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).
The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings
5503.20.00.40, 5503.20.00.45, 5503.20.00.60, and 5503.20.00.65.

Anti-dumping

On January 18, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping order on polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan 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 determinations, the existing antidumping orders against imports of polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan will remain in place. The original orders were imposed on May 25, 2000, with the renewed orders 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 Antidumping Agreement). The merchandise subject to the order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.40, 5503.20.00.45, 5503.20.00.60, and 5503.20.00.65.
