Kolon Industries Gets De Minimis Rate in Antidumping Duty Review Affecting October 2, 2007, through May 31, 2008 Entries

On November 10, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published Final Results of its antidumping duty administrative review of polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip from Korea.  The Department of Commerce determined that Kolon Industries was dumping PET film, sheet, and strip from Korea at a rate of 0.13%, which is de minimis.  In the previous review, Kolon's antidumping duty rate was 1.52%.  Because the new rate is de minimis, cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties will no longer be required.

IMPORTERS - watch the liquidation instructions and liquidations carefully.  If there are any errors in the instructions, you must sue the Department of Commerce within 2 years.  If the U.S. Customs and Border Protection does not liquidate your entries within 6 months of publication of the final, by law, the merchandise liquidates as entered.  That would mean that, you would forfeit the cash deposits of 1.52% of entered value that you paid as estimated antidumping duties upon entering the merchandise into the customs territory of the United States for all October 2, 2007, through May 31, 2008 entries.
