A petition filed April 25 alleges that boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale from India, Malaysia, Taiwan, Thailand, and Vietnam are being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. The alleged average dumping margins are as follows.
- 215.77 percent for India
- 41.29 to 232.94 percent for Malaysia
- 217.66 percent for Taiwan
- 177.72 to 188.06 percent for Thailand
- 85.24 to 205.29 percent for Vietnam
The products covered by this petition are used for storage in homes, basements, garages, offices, and commercial and industrial operations. They utilize a system of assembly that uses rivets or other protrusions on horizontal support members that fit into slots in the vertical posts, thereby limiting the use of nuts and bolts, screws, or tubular collars on posts.
Subject goods are currently classified under HTSUS 9403.20.0075.
Goods excluded from the scope of the petition include wall-mounted shelving, wire shelving units, bulk-packed parts of components of boltless steel shelving units, and made-to-order shelving systems.
The Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission will next determine whether to launch AD duty and injury investigations, respectively, on this product. There are strict statutory deadlines associated with these proceedings, so affected companies that wish to protect their interests should contact Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg as soon as possible.
