The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of frozen warmwater shrimp from China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.  The Commission further determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from Brazil would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.

As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam will remain in place. As a result of the Commission’s negative determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from Brazil will be revoked.

Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Meredith M. Broadbent, and F. Scott Kieff voted in the affirmative with respect to China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam and in the negative with respect to Brazil.

Today’s action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.  See the attached page for background on these five-year (sunset) reviews.

The Commission’s public report Frozen Warmwater Shrimp from Brazil, China, India, Thailand, and Vietnam, Inv. Nos. 731-TA-1063-1064 and 1066-1068 (Second Review), USITC Publication 4688, May 2017) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the reviews.
