Market Economy Inputs Practice in Antidumping Proceedings involving Non-Market Economy Countries
Document Number: E5-4357
Type: Notice
Date: 2005-08-11
Agency: Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration
In antidumping proceedings involving non-market economy (``NME'') countries, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') calculates normal value by valuing the NME producers' factors of production, to the extent possible, using prices from a market economy that is at a comparable level of economic development and that is also a significant producer of comparable merchandise. The goal of this surrogate factor valuation is to use the ``best available information.'' See section 773(c)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930; Shangdong Huraong General Corp. v. United States, 159 F. Supp.2d 714, 719 (CIT 2001). Normally, if a respondent or producer of subject merchandise sources an input from a market economy supplier, the Department will use the average input price paid by the respondent to market economy suppliers (in market economy currency) to value all of the given input (both imported and domestically-sourced) used by respondents (or the producers of the subject merchandise), provided certain conditions are met. The Department announced that is was considering options to change certain aspects of its policy and practice regarding market economy input prices and solicited public comment in a May 26, 2005 notice published in the Federal Register (70 FR 30418). In response to this first notice, the Department received 21 submissions from interested parties. After considering these comments, the Department is requesting comments regarding a proposed change to the Department's market economy inputs practice, which is detailed below.
