On February 2, 2016, the Department published the notice of the initiation of the fourth five-year (“sunset”) review of the Antidumping Order (“AD Order”) on POS Cooking Ware from the PRC, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”).
As a result of its review, the Department determined that revocation of the AD Order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping.
The Department, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the AD Order be revoked.
On July 28, 2016, the ITC published notice of its determination, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the AD Order on POS Cooking Ware from the PRC would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.
Scope of the Orders
The merchandise covered by the AD Order is porcelain-on-steel cooking ware, including tea kettles, which do not have self-contained electric heating elements. All of the foregoing are constructed of steel and are enameled or glazed with vitreous glasses. The merchandise is currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States, (“HTSUS”) subheading 7323.94.00.
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.
Continuation of the Order
As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC that revocation of the AD Order would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(a), the Department hereby orders the continuation of the AD Order on POS Cooking Ware from the PRC. U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise.
The effective date of the continuation of the Order will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act, the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of the Order not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of continuation.
This five-year sunset review and this notice are in accordance with section 751(c) of the Act and published pursuant to section 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(f)(4).
