The US Department of Commerce (DOC) has announced that it has amended the order and the final determination regarding its antidumping investigation on imports of certain carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Austria, on the grounds that the final determination was not in harmony with the United States Court of Internationational Trade (CIT).

Accordingly, the DOC has amended the dumping margin assigned to related companies including Voestalpine’s subsidiaries.

In 2017, the DOC announced its final determination in the antidumping investigation covering the period between April 1, 2015 and March 31,2016, determining an dumping margin of 53.72 percent for Voestalpine. After Voestalpine’s appeal of the decision, the CIT remanded the DOC’s decision, due to commercially significant physical differences among products beacuse of the alloy content and requested the DOC to recalculate the dumping margins.

Therefore, the DOC has determined a 28.57 percent new dumping margin for Voestalpine, which was sustained by the CIT.
