ANNOUNCEMENT 05 Sep 2014
In 2014 and again in 2019 the government of the United States updated an existing anti-subsidy order.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
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).
On July 10, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of sodium nitrite from China and Germany and the existing countervailing duty order on imports of this product 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 determinations, the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from China and Germany and the existing countervailing duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
