The U.S. International Trade Commission voted recently to expedite its five-year (“sunset”) review concerning the antidumping duty order on imports of non-malleable cast-iron pipe fittings from China (Inv. No. 731-TA-990 (Review)). ITC will determine whether revocation of the order concerning this product would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time in accordance with the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.
ITC’s notice of institution in five-year
reviews requests that interested parties file with the Commission responses
that discuss the likely effects of revoking the order under review and provide
other pertinent information. Generally, within 95 days from institution, the
Commission will determine whether the responses it has received reflect an
adequate or inadequate level of interest in a full review.
If responses to the ITC's notice of
institution are adequate, or if other circumstances warrant a full review, the
Commission conducts a full review, which includes a public hearing and issuance
A record of the Commission's votes is
available from the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade
Commission, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436. Requests may be made by

Commission's votes is also posted on the ITC's Internet server athttp://info.usitc.gov/oinv/sunset.NSF(under "Non-Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings - China").
