ANNOUNCEMENT 18 Mar 2013
In 2013 and again in 2018 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 18, 2013 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of certain activated carbon from China. The original order was imposed on April 27, 2007, 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 June 15, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of activated carbon from China 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 antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
