NEW YORK The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC)
has voted to maintain anti-dumping duty orders on
silicomanganese from India, Kazakhstan and Venezuela.
The decision concludes a sunset review process that began Oct.
1, 2012, with the ITC having voted to conduct full reviews Jan.
(R)evoking the existing antidumping duty orders on
silicomanganese from India, Kazakhstan and Venezuela would be
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury
within a reasonably foreseeable time, the commission said
Aug. 23, which means anti-dumping duty orders on imports from
those countries will continue.
All six members of the ITC voted in favor of maintaining
anti-dumping duties on imports from India and Kazakhstan.
Commissioner Daniel Pearson was alone in voting to lift
anti-dumping duties on imports from Venezuela.
Sunset reviews are required every five years under the Uruguay
Round Agreements Act.
