The U.S. International Trade Commission made its final affirmative determination that the U.S. steel industry was materially injured by imports of cut-to length steel plate from Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey. On January 6, 2017, the USITC determined that the products were sold at less than fair value in the U.S. but did not find critical circumstances regarding imports from Brazil and Turkey.
As a result of the USITC finding, Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of CTL plates from the three countries.
The antidumping duties are as follows:
Brazil 74.52 percent
South Africa 87.72 – 94.14 percent
Turkey 42.02 – 50.00 percent
The Department of Commerce is expected to make its final determination on imports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and Taiwan on March 29, 2017, followed by final injury determination by the USITC on May 15.
The DOC decision on CTL Plate from China is scheduled for January 18 with the USITC decision to be made by March 6.
