Pin Anchor Importer Challenges Chinese Nail Duty at CIT
Add to my favorite

A Michigan-based importer of strike pin anchors from China has filed a complaint with the U.S. Court of International Trade protesting a Commerce Department decision this August that the product is subject to anti-dumping duties on certain steel nails from the country. 
Midwest Fastener Corp. contended in its filing that the department ignored substantial evidence showing that the strike pin anchors it imports from China — which involve hammering a steel pin into a wall anchor and are used primarily to attach items like masonry walls — clearly fall outside the scope of a 2008 steel nails anti-dumping duty order.

In June, the company asked Commerce to issue a scope ruling that the strike pin anchors it imports from China fell outside the scope of that anti-dumping duty order, arguing that the product, which consist of a threaded body, a steel pin, a nut and a flat washer, could hardly be considered a steel nail.
