Anti-dumping

In a Federal Register notice published on August 6, 2014 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders against imports of polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from India and Taiwan. The original order was imposed on July 1, 2002, 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).
