Anti-dumping

On January 19, 2018, the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order imports of lined paper school supplies from China and India 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 orders on imports of these products will remain in place.

 

In a Federal Register notice published on August 31, 2012, the U.S. Department of Commerce had previously renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders against imports of certain lined paper from China and India. The original order was imposed on September 28, 2006, 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).
