The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on artists’ canvas 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 determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Meredith M. Broadbent, and F. Scott Kieff voted in the affirmative. Commissioner Dean A. Pinkert did not participate.
Today’s action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. See the attached page for background on this five-year (sunset) review.
The Commission’s public report Artists’ Canvas from China, (Inv. No. 731-TA-1091 (Second Review), USITC Publication 4674, March 2017) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the review.
The report will be available by March 23, 2017; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
