Chinese thermal blankets attract high tariff

03
Feb '10
The United States took a preliminary decision to impose a very high tariff on imports of Chinese cotton woven electro thermal blankets. The high tariff which amounts to 175 percent was imposed on the basis that these woven electro thermal blankets from China are being dumped in to US market at unreasonably low price.

The US Department of Commerce said that this is only a preliminary decision and will announce the final decision in June. According to the Department, Chinese exporters sell these woven blankets at a price as low as 90.32 cents per piece, which is very much lower than a reasonable price.

U.S. Department of Commerce said that from 2006 to 2008, imports of cotton woven heating pad by the United States from China increased by 16.8 percent, to US $29.7 million in 2008. The Department announced the decision in response to the application of a company in Florida.

Department of Commerce said that if it takes an affirmative final decision, the US International Trade Commission would also make an affirmative final decision that the blankets imported from China have caused substantial injury to the U.S. domestic industry, or have threat to the domestic industry, following which it will announce imposition of anti-dumping duties.
