Wiley Rein & Fielding Secures ITC Antidumping Decision for Client
Washington, DC—In a significant victory for Wiley Rein & Fielding client Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has unanimously ruled that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imported diamond sawblades from China and Korea that are sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the decision, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its antidumping investigations of these imports, and is currently scheduled to issue a preliminary determination in this matter in late October.
Diamond sawblades, most commonly used as a cutting tool for hard construction and industrial materials, are finished circular plates manufactured from alloy steel and a mixture of diamonds and metal powders that are formed together into a solid shape.
“The ITC's preliminary determination is an important victory for our client who has been injured by unfairly priced imports from China and Korea,” said Daniel B. Pickard, member of WRF’s International Trade Law & Policy Practice Group.
Mr. Pickard was assisted in this matter by Paul Zucker, Richard DiDonna and Julie Malec.
