The US Department of Commerce (DOC) announced today its preliminary determinations in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of fabricated structural steel from Canada, China, and Mexico.

In the China and Mexico investigations, the DOC made affirmative determinations, finding that exporters received countervailable subsidies at rates ranging from 30.30 to 177.43 percent, and 0.01 (de minimis) to 74.01 percent, respectively. In the Canada investigation, the DOC made a negative determination, finding that exporters received countervailable subsidies at de minimis levels ranging from 0.12 to 0.45 percent.

In 2018, imports of fabricated structural steel from Canada, China, and Mexico were valued at an estimated $722.5 million, $897.5 million, and $622.4 million, respectively. The petitioner for these investigations is the American Institute of Steel Construction Full Member Subgroup (Chicago, IL).

The DOC is currently scheduled to announce its final CVD determinations on or about November 19, 2019. If the DOC makes affirmative final determinations, the US International Trade Commission (ITC) will be scheduled to make its final injury determinations on or about January 2, 2020.
