Anti-dumping

On October 14, 2014 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of steel concrete reinforcing bar from Mexico that are sold in the United States at less than fair value and from Turkey that are subsidized by the government of Turkey. These determination led to the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders at the margins previously determined by the Department of Commerce.
The case began in a petition filed on September 4, 2013, the Rebar Trade Action Coalition seeking the imposition of anti-dumping and countervailing dutieson imports of steel concrete reinforcing bar from Turkey, andanti-dumping duties on imports from Mexico.
