Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation on Imports of
Metal Calendar Slides from Japan
On July 20, the Department of Commerce announced its decision to initiate
an antidumping duty investigation
on imports of Metal
Calendar Slides from Japan.
Next Steps: The International
Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to make its preliminary injury determination
on or about August 15. If
the ITC determines that there is a reasonable indication that imports
from Japan are injuring or threatening material injury to the domestic
industry, the investigation would continue and the Department would be
scheduled to make its preliminary antidumping duty determination in December.
If the ITC makes a negative preliminary injury determination, the investigation
will be terminated.
Petitioners: The petition requesting
this investigation was filed by Stuebing Automatic Machine Company (OH).
Product Description: The
merchandise covered in this investigation is "V"and/or "U"
shaped metal calendar slides manufactured from cold-rolled steel sheets,
whether or not left in black form, tin plated or finished as tin free
steel ("TFS"), typically with a thickness from 0.19 mm to 0.23
mm, typically in lengths from 152 mm to 915 mm, typically in widths from
12 mm to 29 mm when the slide is lying flat and before the angle is pressed
into the slide (although they are not typically shipped in this "flat"
form), that are typically either primed to protect the outside of the
slide against oxidization or coated with a colored enamel or lacquer for
decorative purposes, whether or not stacked, and excluding paper and plastic
slides. Metal calendar slides are typically provided with either a plastic
attached hanger or eyelet to hang and bind calendars, posters, maps or
charts, or the hanger can be stamped form the metal body of the slide
itself. These metal calendar slides are believed to be classified under
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 7326.90.1000
(Other articles of iron and steel: Forged or stamped; but not further
worked: Other: Of tinplate). This HTSUS number is provided for convenience
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection purposes. The written description
of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.
Initiated Dumping Margin:
* These deadlines may be extended under the governing statute.
** This will take place only in the event of a final affirmative determination from the Department of Commerce.
*** This will take place only in the event of final affirmative determinations by both the Department and the ITC.
