Steel Sinks. The International Trade Administration has continued the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on drawn stainless steel sinks from China, effective Aug. 28.

These orders cover drawn stainless steel sinks with single or multiple drawn bowls, with or without drain boards, whether finished or unfinished, regardless of type of finish, gauge, or grade of stainless steel, and whether or not sold in conjunction with non-subject accessories such as faucets, strainers, strainer sets, rinsing baskets, or bottom grids. Mounting clips, fasteners, seals, and sound-deadening pads are also covered if they are included in the sales price of the sinks. Covered goods are currently classified under HTSUS 7324.10.0000 and 7324.10.0010.

Stainless steel sinks with fabricated bowls are excluded from the scope of the orders.
