ANNOUNCEMENT 27 Mar 2013
In March 2013, the government of the United States initiated a new anti-dumping investigation.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
On May 2, 2014 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products from Japan. As a result of this ruling, an anti-dumping order was issued at the margins determined by the U.S. Department of Commerce .The case began on March 27, 2013,when the Thomas Steel Strip Corporation filed an anti-dumping petition against diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated steel flat-rolled products imported from Japan.
On September 10, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping order on imports of diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products from Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of these products from Japan will remain in place.
