Washington—In one of its last actions before the federal government shutdown, the International Trade Commission (ITC) declined to reverse its earlier decision to impose a dumping order on Chinese engineered flooring.
Jonathan Train, president of the Alliance for Free Choice and Jobs in Flooring, which opposed the tariffs, said, “We at the Alliance believe that they are still missing some key points. We’re confident that the court will agree and send it back to the ITC to review again.”
In April, the Court of International Trade agreed that the ITC had not considered all the facts before placing the dumping order and ordered the ITC to take another look. Train noted that the court has an option of not accepting the ITC’s decision.
