Commerce Modifies Import Duties on Belgian Plate

Written by Laura Miller

The US Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA) is updating the antidumping duties on carbon and alloy cut-to-length steel plate imported from Belgium.

In an administrative review of the AD duties, the ITA is considering the one-year period ended April 30, 2022. In its preliminary ruling, the agency set the weighted-average dumping margin at 2.65% for Industeel Belgium SA, a subsidiary of ArcelorMittal, according to a recent Federal Register filing.

That dumping margin is slightly higher than Industeel’s final rate of 1.14% set in the prior year’s administrative review.

NLMK Belgium was found to have no shipments of the subject merchandise during the 2021-22 period of review.

The cash deposit rate for all other Belgian producers or exporters is unchanged at 5.4%.

These initial findings may differ from the ITA’s final results which will be issued later this year.
