U.S. Imposes Duties on Imported Washers from LG, Samsung, Others

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) unanimously ruled on Jan. 23, 2013, that washing machines imported to the United States by Samsung and LG have caused injury to the United States appliance industry.

The ruling came after an earlier determination by the U.S. Department of Commerce that some large residential washers imported to the United States from Korea are subsidized, and found that some large residential washers from Korea and Mexico are sold in the United States as less than fair value.

ITC said it will issue a countervailing duty order
