In March 2012 and again in September 2017 the United States renewed an existing anti-dumping order.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
U.S. International Trade Commission at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/.
In a Federal Register notice published on March 8, 2012 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of uranium (suspended) from Russia. The original order was imposed on October 16, 1992, 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 September 7, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that terminating the suspended antidumping duty investigation on uranium from Russia would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the affirmative determination, the existing suspension agreement will remain in place.
