The U.S. Department of Commerce has postponed issuing a preliminary determination on alleged dumping by Vietnamese exporters of spring units until late July, according to the Vietnamese Bureau of Competition.
The DOC had planned to announce its preliminary determination on June 9, but will delay the verdict for 50 days in order to have more time to review documents and evidence to judge the case.
According to allegations by U.S. manufacturers, businesses from Viet Nam sell their products at less than fair value with the dumping margin being 116.31%.
In 2006, spring imports from the Asian nation were estimated at around US$1.6 million, according to the DOC.
Companies in China and South Africa have also been alleged to sell their springs to the U.S. at less than fair value.
