The Australian Government Antidumping Commission has announced the preliminary results of the antidumping (AD) duty investigation it started in November 2018 on rebar imports from Turkey. The investigation covered the period between October 1, 2017 and September 30, 2018.

The Antidumping Commission’s preliminary assessment has shown that exports of rebar from Turkey to Australia were at dumped prices, and the volume of the dumped goods was greater than three percent of the total Australian import volume. Furthermore, it is stated that the Australian industry was subject to material injury from rebar exports by Turkey.

As a result, the commission has determined a four percent duty with regard to the imports of certain rebar products from Turkey. Final recommendation of the Commission is due on April 23, while the Ministry’s decision is expected to be announced in May.

The investigated rebar products are classified under the following Customs Tariff Statistics Position Numbers: 7213.10.00, 7214.20.00, 7227.90.10, 7227.90.90, 7228.30.10, 7228.30.90, 7228.60.10.
