ANNOUNCEMENT 11 Mar 2014
In March 2014 and again in August 2019, 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 11, 2014 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of steel wire garment hangers from China. The original order was imposed on October 6, 2008, 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 August 2, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of steel wire garment hangers from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
