US ITC sunset review of US antidumping and countervailing duty orders against lined paper school supplies from Indonesia

Tjiwi Kimia
2012

Our attorneys successfully represented Indonesian paper producer, Tjiwi Kimia, in a US International Trade Commission (ITC) sunset review, resulting in revocation of six-year old US antidumping and countervailing duty orders against lined paper school supplies (e.g., composition books, wire and wireless notebooks, and filler paper) from Indonesia.  This was a hotly contested, full sunset review of antidumping and countervailing duty orders against China, India, and Indonesia. 

The firm represented the sole Indonesian exporter, Tjiwi Kimia, affiliated with the Asia Pulp & Paper Group (APP).  Our attorneys convinced the ITC to "decumulate" Indonesia, and evaluate its imports separately from imports from China and India.  The Commission voted 5-1 to find no likelihood of injury if the Indonesian orders were terminated.  (The Commission voted 6-0 to continue the orders against China, and 3-3 to continue the AD order against India.)  The agency decision was issued in August 2012, and the AD/CVD orders against Indonesia were revoked on August 31, 2012.
