US to continue antidumping duty on Chinese garment hangers

Feb '14
The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) has decided on continuation of the existing order on the import of steel wire garment hangers from China.
 
Under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements, all six USITC Commissioners voted in the affirmative and determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
 
The USITC decision means that Chinese steel wire garment hangers will continue to attract a duty in the range of 15.83 percent to 187.25 percent.
 
The Uruguay Round Agreements Act requires the Department of Commerce to revoke an antidumping or countervailing duty order, or terminate a suspension agreement, after five years unless the Department of Commerce and the USITC determine that revoking the order or terminating the suspension agreement would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping or subsidies (Commerce) and of material injury (USITC) within a reasonably foreseeable time.
 
The five-year (sunset) review concerning “Steel Wire Garment Hangers from China” was instituted on September 3, 2013.
 
On December 20, 2013, the Commission voted to conduct an expedited review. All six Commissioners concluded that the domestic group response for this review was adequate and the respondent group response was inadequate and voted for an expedited review.
