Over the weekend, we received a message from trade attorney Lewis Leibowitz regarding the status of the Vietnam circumvention suit. This is the one where the domestic steel mills filed a circumvention suit alleging China is circumventing the duties on cold rolled and CORE (corrosion resistant) steels by sending substrate to Vietnam and having it converted there before shipment to the U.S. as Vietnamese material.
Lewis told us, “Commerce announced today that it will issue a preliminary determination in the Vietnam circumvention proceedings (cold-rolled and corrosion resistant steel) on Oct. 16. The decision will be publicly available on the next business day (Oct. 17). The Commerce Department previously announced that the final determinations will be issued on Feb. 15, 2018.”
