Anti-dumping

On April 10, 2014 the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of hot rolled rods in coils of steel, whether or not containing alloys, that have maximum cross sections that are less than 14 mm, from Indonesia, Taiwan and Turkey (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2014/27, 10.04.2014).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7213.9100 and 7227.9090.
The complaint was lodged on February 24, 2014 by OneSteel Manufacturing Pty Ltd.
 
On July 28, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/64).
 
On October 17, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/97, 17.10.2014).
 
On January 15, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission further extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/02, 15.01.2015).
 
On March 2, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of rod in coils from Chinese Taipei and Indonesia (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/23).
The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Indonesia is 10.6%, at the exception of the company PT Ispat Indo whose exports are not subject to the payment of a duty. The rate of the duty imposed on imports originating in Chinese Taipei is 7.5%.

On May 13th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to terminate the investigation as far as Turkey is concerned (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/59, 13.05.2015). Reason for termination is that the total volume of goods that have been dumped is negligible. The Australian Anti-Dumping Commission also decided to terminate the investigation as far as the Indonesian exporting company PT Ispat Indo is concerned. Reason for this decision is that there has been no dumping.
 
On June 17th, 2015, the Australian authorities decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of rod in coils from Chinese Taipei and Indonesia (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2015/76, 17.06.2015).

In August 2016, the authorities terminate the duty imposed on imports from Indonesia, see related intervention. 

On 17 June 2020, the Australian authorities terminated the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from Chinese Taipei. The duty was terminated as it was set to expire.
