ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On November 26, 2012, the Australian Customs and Border Protection Service initiated an anti-subsidy investigation on imports of zinc coated galvanised steel (flat-rolled products of iron and non-alloy steel of a width less than 600mm and equal to or greater than 600mm, plated or coated with zinc) and aluminium zinc coated steel (flat-rolled products of iron and non-alloy steel of a width equal to or greater than 600mm, plated or coated with aluminium-zinc alloys, not painted whether or not including resin coating), from China (Australian Customs Dumping Notice No. 2012/56). The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7210.4900 and 7212.3000 for zinc coated galvanised steel and 7210.6100 for aluminium zinc coated steel.
The complaint was lodged on October 18, 2012 by BlueScope Steel Limited.
On August 5, 2013, the Australian authorities imposed a definitive duty on imports of the investigated goods (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2013/66). For details about the rate of the duty, see the tables of Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2013/66.
On 10 November 2017, the Australian authorities initiated a sunset review of the definitive countervailing duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China. This follows the application lodged on 6 October 2017 by BlueScope. On the same day, a sunset review was also initiated on the definitive antidumping duty on imports of the subject good, see related state act.
On 17 July 2018, the Australian authorities extended the definitive countervailing duty on imports of zinc coated galvanised steel and aluminium zinc coated steel from China following the conclusion of the sunset review. The rate of duty on imports of zinc coated galvanised steel and aluminium zinc coated steel from China is the combined sum of dumping and countervailing duty. The combined dumping and countervailing duty is 43.4% on imports of zinc coated galvanised steel and 53.2% on imports of aluminium zinc coated steel. The extension of duties enters into force on 18 July 2018 for a period of five years.
