Safeguard

On September 27, 2013, the Philippine authorities started a safeguard investigation on imports of galvanized iron and pre-painted galvanized iron sheets and coils (WTO Document, G/SG/N/6/PHL/10, 10.10.2013).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7210.4110, 7210.4190, 7210.4990, 7210.6910, 7210.6990, 7212.3019, 7212.3093, 7212.3099, 7210.7011, 7210.7012, 7210.7030, 7210.7060, 7210.7090, 7210.9840, 7210.9050, 7210.9060, 7210.9090, 7212.4011, 7212.4019, 7212.5012, 7212.5013, 7212.5019 and 7212.5029.
The investigation was initiated following an evaluation of the petition filed by the domestic industry, represented by Puyat Steel Corporation.
 
On February 2, 2015, the Philippine authorities terminated the investigation without imposing any duty (WTO Document, G/SG/N/9/PHL/2, 27.02.2015). Reason for termination is the absence of serious injury to the domestic industry.
