Uğur Dalbeler, general manager of Turkish integrated steelmaker Çolakoğlu Metalurji, has said that Turkish steelmakers are preparing to file a complaint with their government to start an antidumping duty investigation against hot rolled coil (HRC) imports from the European Union (EU).

Last month, speaking at the Steel Success Strategies conference in New York, Mr. Dalbeler had addressed the issue of rising HRC imports from the EU to Turkey, stating that he expected EU HRC shipments to Turkey to indicate further increases in the months ahead, while he had added that Turkey could easily establish an antidumping duty case against HRC imports from the EU.

In the first five months of the current year, according to Turkish customs statistics, the Netherlands ranked third among suppliers of HRC imports to Turkey, with 151,239 mt of HRC exports to Turkey, up from 98,468 mt in the January-May period of 2018. The Netherlands was followed by France and Romania, with 119,662 mt and 81,146 mt respectively.
