In recent days, the U.S. Department of Commerce has decided on several anti-dumping cases as part of the review process.
Thus, for Turkish rebar manufacturers, anti-dumping duties were previously raised to 11.8-19.1%. Earlier some Turkish companies had zero dumping margin.
The preliminary decision was made with regard to import of corrosion-resistant sheet steel with coatings from Taiwan and South Korea. For Taiwanese companies the dumping margin was from 0 to 1.15%, and for Korean companies – from 0 to 0.75%. In addition, illegal export subsidies for some Korean suppliers were found at 0.51-6.87%.
In another case related to Korean steel exports, the Ministry of Commerce finally set the anti-dumping duties on Nexteel welded pipeline pipes at 15.07% and SeAH Steel at 9.33%. Previously, the duties varied between 6.22-38.87%.
Finally, duties on stainless steel long products manufactured in India were finally set. For Venus Wire Industries they amounted to 17.24% instead of 5.35% previously, and the company Ambica Steels in the period under review (February 1, 2018 – January 31, 2019) did not supply such products to the U.S. and therefore received a zero margin.
