Rigid packaging supplier Berlin Packaging has supported US International Trade Commission (ITC) decision on countervailing duty (CVD) on imports of certain Chinese manufactured glass.

The ITC has ruled against levying CVD on the imports and also scrapped duties previously calculated by the US Department of Commerce (DOC).

Last month, the DOC decided to increase the final CVD on Chinese glass container imports from 25.46% to 320.53% for Chinese manufacturers.

The petition was originally filed by American Glass Packaging Coalition on 2 September last year.

This filing prompted the DOC to issue antidumping and CVDs on imported Chinese glass because of an investigation.

However, ITC’s ruling has invalidated those duties.
