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. 4.
(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.
