Text size
On January 17, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative final
determinations in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of fine denier polyester staple
fiber from China and India.

In the China investigation, Commerce has calculated subsidy rates of 38.00 percent for Jiangyin Hailun
Chemical Fiber Co. Ltd. and 47.57 percent for Jiangyin Huahong Chemical Fiber Co. Ltd. The final
subsidy rates for both respondents were determined partially on the basis of adverse facts available due to
the failure to provide certain information as requested by Commerce. Commerce has determined a rate
of 42.79 percent for all other Chinese producers and exporters.

In the India investigation, Commerce calculated has calculated subsidy rates of 13.38 percent for
Bombay Dyeing & Mfg. Co. Ltd. and 27.36 percent for Reliance Industries Limited. The final subsidy
rates for both respondents were determined partially on the basis of adverse facts available due to the
failure to provide certain information as requested by Commerce. Commerce has determined a rate of
24.80 percent for all other Indian producers and exporters.

As a result of the final affirmative determinations, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border
Protection (CBP) to require cash deposits based on these final rates.

The petitioners are DAK Americas LLC (NC), Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, America (SC), and Auriga
Polymers Inc. (NC).

The scope of these investigations covers fine denier polyester staple fiber (fine denier PSF), not carded or
combed, measuring less than 3.3 decitex (3 denier) in diameter. The scope covers all fine denier PSF,
whether coated or uncoated. The following products are excluded from the scope:

U.S. Department of Commerce |International Trade Administration |Enforcement and Compliance sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner polyester core currently classified under HTSUS subheading 5503.20.0015.

Fine denier PSF is classifiable under the HTSUS subheading 5503.20.0025. Although the HTSUS
