Stephanie Bell Comments on ITC Affirmative Injury Finding on Stainless Steel Flange Imports from India

September 25, 2018

Stephanie M. Bell, was quoted in a September 19 Law360 article about the U.S. International Trade Commission’s (ITC) finding that Indian imports of stainless flanges are materially injuring the American flange industry. The finding allows the U.S. Department of Commerce to levy anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders on the Indian flange imports.

According to Law360, the ITC’s affirmative injury finding is a win for U.S. manufacturers. The Coalition of American Flange Producers — represented by Wiley Rein — filed a petition last year stating that flange producers in India and China were being unfairly financially supported by their respective governments and were dumping their flanges in the U.S. market at prices below fair market value. The ITC made affirmative injury findings regarding imports from China earlier this year.  

Ms. Bell, who is on the Wiley Rein team representing the domestic flange manufacturers, praised the ITC’s injury determination against India as “an important win in a particularly complex case.” 

“We are pleased with this result and the meaningful relief that it will provide to American companies and their employees,” she told Law360.

Ms. Bell added that she has already begun to see “beneficial effects in the U.S. market” as a result of this case.
