On October 28, 2020, Unifi Manufacturing Inc. (“Unifi”) and Nan Ya Plastics Corporation America (“Nan Ya”) (“Petitioners”), filed a petition for the imposition of antidumping duties on polyester textured yarn from Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam.

SCOPE OF THE INVESTIGATION

The merchandise covered by these petitions, polyester textured yarn, is synthetic multifilament yarn that is manufactured from polyester (polyethylene terephthalate). Polyester textured yarn is produced through a texturing process, which imparts special properties to the filaments of the yarn, including stretch, bulk, strength, moisture absorption, insulation, and the appearance of a natural fiber. This scope includes all forms of polyester textured yarn, regardless of surface texture or appearance, yarn density and thickness (as measured in denier), number of filaments, number of plies, finish (luster), cross section, color, dye method, texturing method, or packing method (such as spindles, tubes, or beams).

The merchandise subject to these petitions is properly classified under subheadings 5402.33.3000 and 5402.33.6000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Merchandise may also be entered under HTSUS 5402.52.00. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive.
