PPG: Others await final determination on Chinese replacement windshield dumping

PPG Industries and two other domestic makers of automotive replacement glass learned Friday that final determination from the U.S.

Department of Commerce on dumping charges against Chinese manufacturers of replacement windshields won't be made until Feb. 1, 2002. The final determination had been scheduled for Nov. 26.

Last month the Department of Commerce issued a preliminary determination that automotive replacement windshields from China are being sold at prices below fair value. The antidumping petition was filed Feb. 28 by the domestic automotive replacement glass industry.

Garry A. Goudy, PPG Industries vice president for automotive replacement glass, gave this assessment of the department's preliminary determination. "The department's finding confirms what was said in the antidumping petition, namely, that Chinese producers are selling their merchandise at unfairly low prices. PPG believes that the level of dumping is higher than the preliminary finding, and we will be providing input to help the Commerce Department reach an accurate result by the end of the investigation."

If the final determination is affirmative, then the U.S. International Trade Commission must make its final determination on injury within 45 days.
