Anti-dumping

On January 8, 2014 the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of flat rolled products of alloyed steel plate, commonly referred to as quenched and tempered steel plate, from Finland, Japan and Sweden (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/01).
The product subject to investigation is classified under the following HS code: 7225.4000. Goods of stainless steel, silicon-electrical steel and high-speed steel, are excluded from the goods covered.
The complaint was lodged on November 20, 2013 by Bisalloy Steels Pty Ltd.
 
On April 24, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/36).
 
On May 19, 2014, the Australian authorities decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on the products under investigation (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2014/42, 19.05.2014). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Finland is 15.4%. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Japan is 26.1%, at the exception of the company JFE Steel Corporation whose exports are subject to a duty of 18.0%. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Sweden is 13.6%.
 
On July 21, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission further extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/60).
 
On August 27, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 234). It decided to modify the provisional duty imposed on imports of quenched and tempered steel plate from Finland, Japan and Sweden (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/78). The modified rate of the provisional duty is 10.8% on imports originating in Finland and 26.1% on imports originating in Japan, at the exception of the company JFE Steel Corporation whose exports are subject to a duty of 24.5%. The modified rate of the provisional duty imposed on imports originating in Sweden is calculated using a combination fixed and variable method (for details, see Table 2 'Revised preliminary provisional measures' of SEF Report No. 234, p. 8).
 
On October 10, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Final Report (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/102, 10.10.2014).
 
On November 5, 2014, the Australian authorities imposed a definitive duty on imports of the investigated goods (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/123). The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Finland is 10.8%. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Japan is 26.1%, at the exception of the company JFE Steel Corporation whose exports are subject to a duty of 24.5%. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Sweden is 9.6%.
