ANNOUNCEMENT 29 May 2009In May 2009, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-subsidy and a new anti-dumping investigation.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
In addition to the sources hyperlinked in the description above, data on the petitioners and their claims were obtained directly from the petition. Several other documents related to the investigation may be reached at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/731_ad_701_cvd/investigations/2009/steel_grating/prelimphase.htm.
In a petition filed on May 29, 2009, two U.S. firms sought the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of steel grating from China. The United States imported $90.7 million worth of this product from China in 2008. No estimates of the dumping or subsidy rates were given in the public version of the petition.
The U.S. Department of Commerce found margins of 62.46% (subsidy) and 136.76-145.15% (dumping). Orders were issued after the U.S. International Trade Commission reached a final affirmative injury determination on June 24, 2010.
