Anti-dumping

On 15 June 2012, Australia initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of hot-rolled coil steel from Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Chinese Taipei.
The dumping is alleged to have happened between the 1st of April 2011 and the 31st of March 2012.
The concerned HS codes are: 7208.2500; 7208.2600; 7208.2700; 7208.3600; 7208.3700; 7208.3800; 7208.3900; 7208.5300; 7208.5400; 7208.9000; 7211.1400 and 7211.1900.
On 20 December 2012, the Australian Minister for Home Affairs announced the imposition of anti-dumping duties on the subject product.

After Toyota Tsusho (Australasia) Pty Ltd,., an importer of the goods subject to the duty, lodged an application for exemption from the duty imposed on December 20th, 2012 for goods classified under HS code 7208.2700 (pickled HRC meeting specific characteristics covered by (TCO) TC 1413447), the Commissioner of the Anti-Dumping Commission started an exemption inquiry on May 27th, 2015 (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/68, 27.05.2015).

On August 31st, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission concluded the exemption inquiry initiated on May 27th, 2015 and decided to grant an exemption to the goods subject to the inquiry (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/109, 31.08.2015). The exemption takes effect from July 18th, 2014.
 
On 4 April 2017, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duty imposed on the subject good from Japan, Republic of Korea, Malaysia, Chinese Taipei. This follows the application lodged on 8 March 2017 by BlueScope Steel Limited. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheadings: 7208.2500; 7208.2600; 7208.2700; 7208.3600; 7208.3700; 7208.3800; 7208.3900; 7208.5300; 7208.5400; 7208.9000; 7211.1400 and 7211.1900.

On 18 December 2017, the Australian authorities issued a notice extending the antidumping duty on imports of the subject good from Chinese Taipei following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The rate of duty on imports from Chinese Taipei is calculated on the basis of the "floor price". As such, no fixed duty is imposed. Duties are triggered if the "floor price" is greater than the price of the subject good's dumping export price (DXP). The duty is the difference between the floor price and DXP. The floor price is classified as confidential by the Australian authorities. The definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Malaysia, the Republic of Korea and Japan is terminated. The extension notice was published on 18 December 2017 and entered into force on 20 December 2017.
