AD Duty Orders on Washers from Taiwan and China Continued
AD Duty Orders on Washers from Taiwan and China Continued. The International Trade Administration is continuing for another five years the antidumping duty orders on certain helical spring lock washers from Taiwan and China. As a result, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise.
The products covered by these orders are lock washers of carbon steel, of carbon alloy steel, or of stainless steel, heat-treated or non-heat-treated, plated or non-plated, with ends that are offline. Lock washers are designed to function as a spring to compensate for developed looseness between the component parts of a fastened assembly, distribute the load over a larger area for screws or bolts, and provide a hardened bearing surface. Subject washers are classifiable under HTSUS 7318.21.0000 and 7318.21.0030. The scope does not include internal or external tooth washers, nor does it include spring lock washers made of other metals, such as copper.
