The Japan Iron and Steel Federation has announced that the Japanese steel industry will determine a proper course of action in preparation for the Indian Ministry of Finance’s final determination in the antidumping duty investigations of coated/plated tin mill flat rolled steel products imported from Japan.

According to the statement by the JISF, the Japanese steel industry reported that exports of the given products from Japan have caused no injury to the domestic industry in India during the antidumping investigation. However, India’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry has rejected their statements and concluded that the domestic industry in India has been injured by imports of the given products from Japan. The JISF stated that it is an inappropriate and regrettable decision and that they will carefully examine it.

India’s Directorate General for Trade Remedies (DGTR) has recommended imposition of antidumping duties on coated/plated tin mill flat rolled steel products imported from the EU, Japan, the US and South Korea for five years, as previously reported by the SteelOrbis.
