Anti-subsidy

In a Federal Register notice published on September 5, 2014 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing countervailing duty order against imports of sodium nitrite from China. The original order was imposed on August 27, 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).
