Denied Change in Dumping Duties


The World Trade Organization’s Appellate Body has ruled against Vietnamese shrimp exporters in their challenge to the Department of Commerce’s use of “zeroing” to calculate anti-dumping duty rates on shrimp shipments sent to the USA market.


Vietnamese exporters had taken issue with how Commerce calculated the dumping duties in its fourth, fifth and sixth administrative reviews.


In its findings and conclusions, the WTO rejected Vietnam’s claim that the Panel acted inconsistently with the use of zeroing and with how Commerce assessed Vietnam as a non-market economy.
