Court Of Appeals Affirms Decision Imposing Duties On Chinese Magnesium Exporter That Lied To The Commerce Department
Cole Pfeiffer and Joshua Snead
The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit last month affirmed a Court of International Trade order upholding the Department of Commerce's imposition of a 111.73 percent antidumping duty against Tianjin Magnesium International Co. Ltd.'s (TMI's) magnesium imports from China. The Department of Commerce (Commerce) imposed the duties, in part, as a result of its finding that TMI failed to cooperate with the investigation, as demonstrated by its submission of fraudulent information during the underlying administrative review. Commerce had previously found that TMI failed to cooperate during an earlier administrative review of the same antidumping order, during which TMI had submitted the same fraudulent information.
