As noted in the Commerce release, exporters were found to have received countervailable subsidies ranging from 32.04% to 459.98% from China and 7.09% to 20.45% from India. Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of polyester textured yarn from China and India based on these preliminary rates.

Commerce is currently scheduled to announce its final CVD determinations on or about September 10, 2019.

  • If Commerce makes affirmative final determinations, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) will be scheduled to make its final injury determinations on or about October 24, 2019.
  • If Commerce makes affirmative final determinations in these investigations, and the ITC makes affirmative final injury determinations, Commerce will issue CVD orders.
  • If Commerce makes negative final determinations, or the ITC makes negative final determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated and no orders will be issued.
