NEW YORK Imports of diamond sawblades and parts from
China and South Korea from Nov. 1, 2010, to Oct. 23, 2011, were
sold at below normal value, the Commerce
Departments International Trade Administration
(ITA) has determined in a preliminary anti-dumping duty
administrative review. It issued dumping margins ranging from
zero to 164.09 percent for Chinese producers/exporters and zero
to 121.19 percent for Korean shippers.
The Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition has alleged
that Chinese and South Korean producers sold diamond sawblades
in the United States bearing a false country of origin, an
allegation that Commerce is still investigating.
