The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) recently determined that revoking the existing countervailing and antidumping duty orders on imports of multilayered wood flooring from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from China will remain in place.
Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson and Meredith M. Broadbent voted in the affirmative.
This action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.
The Commission’s public report Multilayered Wood Flooring from China (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-476 and 731-TA-1179 (Review), USITC Publication 4746, December 2017) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the reviews.
The report will be available by December 21, 2017; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
