ITC Rejects Several Antidumping And Countervailing Duty Cases
The ITC voted on numerous antidumping and countervailing duty investigations in April 2012. The ITC made negative final determinations in antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on imports of refrigerators with bottom-mounted freezers from Korea and Mexico, imports of steel wheels from China, and imports of galvanized wire from China and Mexico. These determinations terminate the investigations, but are subject to appeal in the federal courts. The ITC made affirmative final determinations in the antidumping investigations on imports of stilbenic optical brightening agents from China and Taiwan and imports of steel nails from the United Arab Emirates. Following these affirmative decisions, the Department of Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders.
