ANNOUNCEMENT 17 Jun 2010In June 2010, the United States renewed an existing anti-dumping order.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
U.S. International Trade Commission at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/.
Since 2010, the US government has repeatedly renewed the anti-dumping duties on steel wire rod from selected countries.
On July 8, 2016 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing anti-dumping duty orders on stainless steel wire rod from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the Commission's affirmative determinations, the existing anti-dumping duty orders on imports of this product from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan will remain in place.
In a Federal Register notice published on June 17, 2010 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of stainless steel wire rod from Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain and Taiwan. The original order was imposed on September 15, 1998, with the renewed order thus exceeding the five-year 'sunset' standard that generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTO agreements (i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).
