US: ITC to continue anti-dumping case against Chinese polyester fibres
China The US International Trade Commission yesterday (7 August) said it would continue with its antidumping investigation into polyester staple fibre imports from China.
There is a "reasonable indication that a US industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain polyester staple fibre from China that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value," the ITC said in a statement.
Its preliminary determination is due at the end of November 2006, when US Customs and Border Protection could require importers to pay a cash deposit or post a bond equal to the estimated dumping margin.
US producers had complained that the volume of Chinese polyester fibre imports surged 161% between 2003 and 2005.
The fibres being investigated are certain polyester staple fibres (PSF) used as stuffing in ski jackets, sleeping bags, mattresses, cushions and furniture.
