On Tuesday, the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) made an affirmative determination in a five-year (sunset) review concerning pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy. The was welcome news to the U.S. tape manufacturers, which made a priority of the renewal of this order, which is decades old but still effective. Husch Blackwell’s international trade team of Jeffrey Neeley, Cortney Morgan and Michael Holton represented the Pressure Sensitive Tape Council in this complex matter, ultimately convincing the USITC that injury to the domestic market very much still existed if the finding were lifted. The USITC agreed, determining that revoking the existing duty finding would be likely to lead to injury, therefore the existing antidumping duty finding will remain in place.
