ANNOUNCED AS TEMPORARYNo
On June 1st, 2015, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of 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, from China.
This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive anti-dumping duty (see related state act) as well as the definitive countervailing duty (see related intervention) imposed on imports of flat-rolled iron or steel products (whether or not containing alloys),of a width less than 600mm and equal to or greater than 600mm, plated or coated with zinc, from China might be circumvented.
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7225.9200 and 7226.9900.
The complaint was lodged on May 7th, 2015 by BlueScope Steel Limited.
On August 24th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/105, 24.08.2015).
On 18 March 2016, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Final Report (Final Report No. 290, 298). It came to the conclusion that the alleged circumvention activity has occurred and thus recommended that imports from China to include the slightly modified products specified. On 18 March 2016, the Australian authorities issued Notice No. 2016/23 implementing this recommendation.
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, see related intervention. This follows the application lodged on 6 October 2017 by BlueScope. Since the countervailing measure imposed on imports of zinc coated galvanised steel from China was extended to imports of slightly modified zinc coated galvanised steel from China, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for these goods as well.
On 17 July 2018, the Australian authorities extended the countervailing duty on imports of the subject good from China following the conclusion of the above sunset review. The extension of duties enters into force after 18 July 2018 for a period of five years.
