Anti-dumping

In a Federal Register notice published on July 22, 2013 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of steel concrete reinforcing bar from Belarus, China, Indonesia, Latvia, Moldova, Poland, and Ukraine. The original order was imposed on September 7, 2001, 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).

Anti-dumping

On October 23, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of steel concrete reinforcing bar from Belarus, China, Indonesia, Latvia, Moldova, Poland, and Ukraine 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 antidumping duty orders on imports of this product from Belarus, China, Indonesia, Latvia, Moldova, Poland, and Ukraine will remain in place.
