The US Customs and Border Protection to begin collecting anti-dumping (AD) duties on imports of fine denier polyester staple fibre (PSF) from these four countries.
The amount of anti-dumping duties will be equal to the preliminary anti-dumping margins in each country, and importers will be required to post duty deposits beginning on the date of publication of US department of commerceâ€™s determinations in the Federal Register, in approximately one week.
The preliminary anti-dumping margins on fine denier PSF imports from China would range between 63.26 percent to 181.46 percent. The duty applicable on import form Jiangying Huahong Chemical Fiber Co. Ltd. will be 63.26 percent, separate rate companies will be 122.36 percent, and all other companies including Jiangyin Hailun Chemical Fiber Co., Ltd. will be 181.46 percent.
Likewise, fine denier PSF imports from Indian producer/exporter Bombay Dyeing & Manufacturing Co. Ltd. will attract anti-dumping duty of 21.43 percent. Import from all other Indian companies, including Reliance Industries Ltd., will attract 2.66 percent duty.
Similarly, fine denier PSF import from two Korean companiesâ€”Down Nara Co., Ltd. and Huvis Corporationâ€”would attract anti-dumping duty of 45.23 percent, while all other companies would attract duty of 35.15 percent, with the exception of Toray Chemical Korea Inc. which will not attract any anti-dumping duty.
For fine denier PSF imports from Taiwanese producer Far Eastern Textile Ltd, the anti-dumping duty would be 48.86 percent, while all other Taiwanese companies will attract duty of 24.43 per cent, with exception of Tainan Spinning Co. Ltd., which will not attract any anti-dumping duty.

Paul Rosenthal, of Kelley Drye & Warren LLP, counsel to the petitioning US producers, namely DAK Americas LLC, Nan Ya Plastics Corporation, America, and Auriga Polymers Inc., said that they are pleased with the overall strong anti-dumping duty determinations in each of these four cases.
The margins support what the domestic fine denier PSF industry has experienced for years â€“ the growing presence of dumped merchandise from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan in the U.S. market.
The affirmative CVD determinations were announced by the US department of commerce on October 31, 2017, and those CVD rates are in effect since November 6, 2017.
