The U.S. Department of Commerce has ordered the continuation of antidumping duties on uncovered innerspring units from China, South Africa and Vietnam for another five years.

The decision follows a determination by both the DOC and the U.S. International Trade Commission that found revoking the orders on each country would likely lead to continued recurrence of dumping and material injury to domestic producers.

The second five-year sunset review began in early March. After seeking comments from interested parties, the DOC conducted an expedited 120 review of the antidumping order and notified the ITC of dumping margins that would occur should the order be revoked.Both the ITC and the DOC published the determination earlier this month.

The scope of the orders covers “uncovered innerspring units composed of a series of individual metal springs joined together in sizes corresponding to the sizes of adult mattresses (e.g., twin, twin long, full, full long, queen, California king and king) and units used in smaller constructions, such as crib and youth mattresses. All uncovered innerspring units are included in this scope regardless of width and length. Included within this definition are innersprings typically ranging from 30.5 inches to 76 inches in width and 68 inches to 84 inches in length. Innersprings for crib mattresses typically range from 25 inches to 27 inches in width and 50 inches to 52 inches in length.”
