US Expedites Anti-Dumping Reviews

by Mike Godfrey,, Washington

13 July 2017

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has voted to expedite reviews of anti-dumping duty (AD) orders to determine whether certain US producers would continue to suffer harm in their absence.

USITC has voted not to hold a full review concerning AD orders on fresh garlic from China, certain stilbenic optical brightening agents from China and Taiwan, and certain steel nails from the United Arab Emirates. This means that USITC will determine whether to maintain AD orders on the basis of the facts already available, including the prior injury and review determinations. It will not hold a hearing or conduct further investigations.

Under the Uruguay Round Agreement, AD orders must be reviewed at least every five years. USITC will usually maintain AD orders whenever revocation is likely to lead to material injury of the US domestic industry "within a reasonably foreseeable time."

USITC determines whether a full review is required based on the level of interest it receives after issuing notice of a review. In all three of these cases, USITC determined that responses from domestic industry was "adequate," whilst those from the respondents subject to the AD orders were "inadequate".
