Anti-dumping

Since 2011, the US government has repeatedly renewed the anti-dumping duties imposed on stainless steel plates imported from selected countries.
 
On December 9, 2016 the U.S. International Trade Commission determinedthat revoking the existing countervailing duty order on stainless steelplate from South Africa and the existing anti-dumping duty orders on thisproduct from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan would be likely to leadto continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonablyforeseeable time. These orders will therefore remain in place.
 
In a Federal Register notice published on August 30, 2011 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders against imports of stainless steel plate in coils from South Africa, Belgium, Korea, and Taiwan. The original order was imposed on May 21, 1999, 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).
