In May, 2012 and again in October, 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/ and https://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2017/er1004ll840.htm.
In a Federal Register notice published on May 14, 2012 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of fresh garlic from China. The original order was imposed on November 16, 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).
On October 4, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of fresh garlic from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of this determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
