Anti-dumping

On July 28, 2015, following the filing of petitions from a coalition of firms (AK Steel Corp., ArcelorMittal USA LLC, Nucor Corp., Steel Dynamics, Inc., and United States Steel Corp.), the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) instituted anti-dumping and countervailing duty investigations of cold-rolled steel flat products imported from Brazil, China, India, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Russia, and the United Kingdom. Finding negligibility, the investigation on imports of these products from the Netherlands was terminated.
 
On March 1, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determinations in the investigations, and on July 21, 2016, it announced its affirmative final determinations.
 
On September 2, 2016 the USITC determined that an industry in the United States is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of these products from Brazil, India, Korea, and the United Kingdom. As a result of the USITC's affirmative determinations, the Department of Commerce will issue countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from Brazil, India, and Korea and anti-dumping duty orders on imports of these products from Brazil, India, Korea, and the United Kingdom. Due to a finding that imports of these products from Russia are negligible, no orders will be issued on imports of these products from Russia.
 
The products subject to these investigations are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers: 7209.15.0000, 7209.16.0030, 7209.16.0060, 7209.16.0070, 7209.16.0091, 7209.17.0030, 7209.17.0060, 7209.17.0070, 7209.17.0091, 7209.18.1530, 7209.18.1560, 7209.18.2510, 7209.18.2520, 7209.18.2580, 7209.18.6020, 7209.18.6090, 7209.25.0000, 7209.26.0000, 7209.27.0000, 7209.28.0000, 7209.90.0000, 7210.70.3000, 7211.23.1500, 7211.23.2000, 7211.23.3000, 7211.23.4500, 7211.23.6030, 7211.23.6060, 7211.23.6090, 7211.29.2030, 7211.29.2090, 7211.29.4500, 7211.29.6030, 7211.29.6080, 7211.90.0000, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000, 7225.50.6000, 7225.50.8080, 7225.99.0090, 7226.92.5000, 7226.92.7050, and 7226.92.8050.
