In a Federal Register notice published on February 4, 2014 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders against imports of hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from China, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, India, and Indonesia. The original order was imposed on December 3, 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).
