On August 12th, 2015, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of hot-rolled rods in coils of steel (maximum cross sections less than 14 mm), whether or not containing alloys, from China (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/95, 12.08.2015).
