DOC Initiates Antidumping Duty Investigation on Outboard Engines from Japan

In response to a petition submitted by Mercury Marine, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) has initiated an antidumping duty investigation on imports of outboard engines from Japan. The petition alleged dumping margins of 11.80% - 41.50%.

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to issue its preliminary injury determination on or before February 23, 2004. If the ITC finds that there is a reasonable indication that the domestic industry is materially injured, or is threatened with material injury, as a result of imports of outboard engines, the DOC investigation will proceed. DOC is expected to issue its preliminary determination in June 2004. If the ITC makes a negative determination on imports, then the DOC investigation will be terminated.

The products subject to this investigation are gasoline-powered spark outboard motors designed and used for all types of light recreational and commercial boats. These outboard motors are produced by some of Japan's largest companies, including Yamaha, Honda and Suzuki. These products are classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) at subheadings 8407.21.0040 and 8407.21.0080.
