Anti-dumping

On July 28, 2015 a coalition of five companies (AK Steel Corporation, ArcelorMittal USA LLC, Nucor Corporation, Steel Dynamics Inc., and United States Steel Corporation) filed petitions seeking the imposition of countervailing and anti-dumping duties on certain cold-rolled steel flat products imported from Brazil, China, India, Japan, Korea, Netherlands, Russia, and the United Kingdom. The first step in the case is the U.S. International Trade Commission's preliminary injury determination. On September 10, 2015 the commission determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports from Brazil, China, India, Japan, Korea, Russia, and the United Kingdom. The commission further determined that imports of these products from the Netherlands are negligible, and therefore discontinued the investigation with respect to that country.
The Department of Commerce published its preliminary affirmative dumping determinations with respect to these imports on March 7, 2016. It published its final AD and CVD determinations with respect to China and Japan on May 24, 2016.
On June 22, 2016 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of these imports. As a result of these determinations, the Department of Commerce will issue a countervailing duty order on imports from China and anti-dumping duty orders on imports from China and Japan.
