The U.S. Double-Anti Injury Ruling on Drawn Stainless-Steel Sinks from China
On April 13, 2012, the U.S. International Trade Commission announced a preliminary anti-dumping and anti-subsidy ruling that the allegedly dumped and subsidized drawn stainless steel sinks from China have materially injured the U.S. local industries, with all six Commissioners' votes in the affirmative.
According to the affirmative ruling, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its investigations on imports of those products, with its preliminary anti-subsidy ruling made on May 25, 2012 and its preliminary anti-dumping ruling on August 8, 2012.
On March 22, 2012, the Department announced starting the double-anti investigations under HS Code 73241000.00. The petitioner, Elkay Manufacturing Company, calls for levying 22.81%-76.53% anti-dumping duties and micro anti-subsidy duties.
