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.
