NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS

In a Federal Register notice published on April 26, 2012 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of brass sheet and strip from France, Italy, Germany from March 6, 1987; and Japan. The original order was imposed on August 12, 1988, 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 28, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of brass sheet and strip from France, Germany, Italy, and Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping duty orders will remain in place.
