For the purposes of this order, the product covered is certain polyester staple fiber (‘‘PSF’’). PSF is defined as synthetic staple fibers, not carded, combed or otherwise processed for spinning, of polyesters measuring 3.3 decitex (3 denier, inclusive) or more in diameter. This merchandise is cut to lengths varying from one inch (25 mm) to five inches (127 mm). The merchandise subject to this order may be coated, usually with a silicon or other finish, or not coated. PSF is generally used as stuffing in sleeping bags, mattresses, ski jackets, comforters, cushions, pillows, and furniture. Merchandise of less than 3.3 decitex (less than 3 denier) currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheading 5503.20.00.25 is specifically excluded from this order. Also specifically excluded from this order are polyester staple fibers of 10 to 18 denier that are cut to lengths of 6 to 8 inches (fibers used in the manufacture of carpeting). In addition, low–melt PSF is excluded from this order. Low–melt PSF is defined as a bi–component fiber with an outer sheath that melts at a significantly lower temperature than its inner core.

The merchandise subject to this order is currently classifiable in the HTSUS at subheadings 5503.20.00.45 and 5503.20.00.65. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise under the order is dispositive. . 

Huvis Corporation Halves Antidumping Duty Rate in Administrative Review affecting May 1, 2007, through April 30, 2008 Entries 

On December 10, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published the Final Results of its antidumping duty administrative review of polyester staple fiber from KoreaThe Department of Commerce determined that Huvis Corporation was dumping polyester staple fiber in the United States.  The Department of Commerce calculated a dumping rate of 1.50% for Huvis.  In the previous review, Huvis Corporation's rate was 2.92%.

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, the merchandise liquidates as entered.  In this case, that would mean you would pay double the antidumping duties required by law, and lose the refund -- plus interest -- that the U.S. Government owes you.
