Anti-dumping

On February 21, 2019 Vulcan Steel Products Inc. filed an antidumping petition against carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from China, India, Taiwan, and Thailand. Steel threaded rod is currently classifiable under HTSUS 7318.15.5051, 7318.15.5056, and 7318.15.5090 and may also enter under HTSUS 7318.15.2095 and 7318.19.0000. 

On April 5, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from China, India, Taiwan, and Thailand that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the governments of China and India. 

On August 1, 2019 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced an affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty investigation of imports of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from Thailand, finding that exporters from Thailand have dumped steel threaded rod in the United States at a margin of 20.83 percent. As a result of today’s decision, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protectionto collect cash deposits from importers of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from Thailand based on the preliminary rate noted above. Because Commerce also preliminarily determined that critical circumstances exist, we will instruct CBP to begin suspending entries 90 days before the publication of the preliminary determination in the Federal Register.

On September 20, 2019 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determinations in the AD investigations, finding that exporters from China, India, and Taiwan have dumped carbon and alloy steel threaded rod at the following rates: China – 4.81-59.45%, India – 2.04%, Taiwan – 32.26%. As a result of today’s decisions, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from China, India, and Taiwan as applicable.
