US Announces Affirmative Final Ruling on Fine Denier Polyester Staple Fiber from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan
 
Text size
On May 24, 2018, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) investigations of imports of fine denier polyester staple fiber from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan.

In the China investigation, Commerce calculated a dumping rate of 72.22 percent for mandatory respondent Jiangyin Hailun Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd., and 65.17 percent for mandatory respondent Jiangyin Huahong Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. The China-wide entity received a dumping rate of 103.06
percent, based on adverse facts available.

Fourteen additional companies demonstrated that they are independent from Chinese government control; thus, Commerce granted these companies a separate rate, which is equal to the simple average of the dumping rates calculated for Jiangyin Hailun Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. and Jiangyin Huahong Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd.

In the India investigation, Commerce assigned a dumping rate of 21.43 percent to mandatory respondents Reliance Industries Limited and Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Company Limited based on adverse facts available. Commerce assigned a dumping rate of 21.43 percent to all other producers and exporters of fine denier polyester staple fiber from India. This rate is based on an AD margin from the petition.

In the Korea investigation, Commerce calculated a dumping rate of zero percent for mandatory respondent Toray Chemical Korea Inc., and assigned a dumping rate of 45.23 percent to mandatory respondents Down Nara Co., Ltd. (AKA Down-Nara Co., Ltd., AKA Koreco Synthetic Fiber Co., Ltd.) and Huvis Corporation based on adverse facts available. Commerce determined a dumping rate of 30.15 percent for all other producers and exporters of fine denier polyester staple fiber from Korea.

In the Taiwan investigation, Commerce calculated a dumping rate of zero percent for mandatory respondent Tainan Spinning Co., Ltd., and assigned a dumping rate of 48.86 percent to mandatory respondent Far Eastern Textile Ltd. (AKA Far Eastern New Century Corporation) based on adverse facts available. Commerce determined a dumping rate of 24.43 percent for all other producers and exporters of fine denier polyester staple fiber from Taiwan.

Upon publication of the final affirmative determinations, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to collect cash deposits based on the applicable final dumping margins.

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:

(1)
PSF equal to or greater than 3.3. decitex (more than 3 denier, inclusive) currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 5503.20.0045 and 5503.20.0065.

(2)
Low-melt PSF defined as a bi-component polyester fiber having a polyester fiber component that melts at a lower temperature than the other polyester fiber component which is currently classifiable under HTSUS subheading 5503.20.0015.

Fine denier PSF is classifiable under the HTSUS subheading 5503.20.0025. Although the HTSUS
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these investigations is dispositive.

In 2017, imports of fine denier polyester staple fiber from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan were valued at an estimated $61.4 million, $23.7 million, $11.9 million, and $7.4 million, respectively.

NEXT STEPS
The U.S International Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to make its final determinations on or about July 9, 2018.

If the ITC makes affirmative final determinations that imports of fine denier polyester staple fiber from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan materially injure, or threaten material injury to, the domestic industry, Commerce will issue AD orders. If the ITC makes negative determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated.
