The Steel Manufacturers Association is still confident that the Section 232 investigation on steel imports will bring relief to the U.S. steel industry. SMA President Philip Bell called the investigation a "really complex issue," during a media call on Monday.
Although the administration issued a self-imposed deadline of June 30, which it failed to meet, the investigation is now on a more typical timeline, Bell said. Section 232 actions are designed to take about a year to complete. Following the Jan. 16 deadline for a report, the president will have another 90 days to implement any actions on imported steel.
