Anti-dumping

Following a final negative injury determinationby the U.S. International Trade Commission on April 23, 2012 (http://www.usitc.gov/press_room/news_release/2012/er0423kk1.htm), the investigation of wire imported from Mexico and China is terminated. The case began in a pair of petitions filed on March 31, 2011, a coalition of U.S. producers (Davis Wire Corporation, Johnstown Wire Technologies, Inc., Mid-South Wire Company, Inc., National Standard LLC, and Oklahoma Steel & Wire Company Inc.) seeks the imposition of countervailing duties on galvanized steel wire imported from China and anti-dumping duties on the same product imported from Mexico and China.
The U.S. International Trade Commission reached an affirmative determination in its preliminary injury investigation on May 16, 2011, so the case proceeded to the U.S. Department of Commerce's preliminary AD and CVD determinations. 
On August 30, 2011, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the CVD case. Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese producers/exporters have received countervailable subsidies ranging from 21.59 to 253.07 percent ad valorem. Those findings are rendered moot by the USITC's negative injury determination.
