In the first U.S. antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) cases of 2011, U.S. companies today filed AD/CVD petitions on imports of steel wheels from China and refrigerators from South Korea and Mexico. These AD/CVD petitions are the first ones filed in the U.S. since AD/CVD petitions were filed against wood flooring from China in October 2011.

According to Whirlpool two Korean manufacturers, Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics, export their products to the U.S. from manufacturing facilities in both Korea and Mexico. The Whirlpool products impacted by these imports are made in Amana, Iowa, where Whirlpool employs approximately 2,000 people.

Assuming an affirmative preliminary injury determination by the ITC, the Department of Commerce’s preliminary decision on the level of subsidies is expected in August 2011 and on dumping in October 2011. The final decisions will be issued by the Department of Commerce and ITC in the second quarter of 2012.
