DOC extends review of two Chinese innerspring shippers
June 13, 2011,
WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Commerce has delayed the release of preliminary duty rates in a new shipper review in the uncovered innerspring units antidumping case.
The review addresses shipments made Feb. 1-Aug. 4, 2010, by two Chinese innerspring units producers, Foshan Nanhai Jiujiang Quan Li Spring Hardware Factory and Foshan Yongnuo Import and Export Co. Ltd.
The review will determine duty rates to be paid by importers of product from these manufacturers, which are considered new shippers because they do not have a previous record of shipping the innerspring units to the U.S. market.
The duties are meant to level the playing field for domestic producers of uncovered innerspring units that have been injured by unfair pricing of imported innersprings. The duties are assigned to the factories, but paid by importers of record of the merchandise.
