Anti-dumping

On August 12th, 2015, the Commissioner of the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of hot-rolled rods in coils of steel (maximum cross sections less than 14 mm), whether or not containing alloys, from China (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/95, 12.08.2015).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7213.9100 and 7227.9090. The following products are excluded from the scope of the investigation: hot-rolled deformed steel reinforcing bar in coil form, commonly identified as rebar or debar, and stainless steel in coils.
The complaint was lodged by OneSteel Manufacturing Pty Ltd.
 
On 2 December 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission imposed a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of steel rod in coils from China (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/142). The rate of the duty ranges between 9.5% and 18.4% depending on the company.
 
On 15 February 2016, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to revise the provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of the subject good based on the Statement of Essential Facts No. 301 issued on the same day. The rate of duty is increased to 28.2%, 32.1% or 53.9 depending on the company.
 
On 22 April 2016, the Australian authorities imposed a definitive duty on above products from China. The rate of duty is between 37.4% and 53.1% depending on the company.

On 19 February 2019, the Australian authorities amended the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of steel rod in coils from all other exporters from China following the conclusion of a review. The rate of duty is 39.5%. The previous duty was 53.1%.
