US ITC issues affirmative ruling in AD/CVD case against cut-to-length plate from eight countries
The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) determined that a US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan that the US Department of Commerce (DOC) has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the government of Korea.
Chairman Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Vice Chairman David S. Johanson, and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Meredith M. Broadbent, and F. Scott Kieff voted in the affirmative.
As a result of the ITC’s affirmative determinations, the DOC will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and a countervailing duty order on imports of this product from Korea.
The Commission also made negative findings with respect to critical circumstances with regard to imports of this product from Austria, Belgium, and Italy. As a result, goods sold at less than fair value that entered the United States prior to November 14, 2016 (date of the DOC’s affirmative preliminary determinations), will not be subject to retroactive antidumping duties.
