U.S. ITC Issues Two Decisions Regarding Chinese-Made Steel Products

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) last week made final determinations in two cases concerning steel products from China. As reported by American Metal Market:

  • In the first case, the ITC issued anti-dumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of cut-to-length carbon and alloy plate. The U.S. Commerce Department in January had set final anti-dumping margins on these products at 68.27 percent and had set final countervailing duties at 251 percent.
  • In the second case, the ITC affirmed anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imports of Chinese stainless steel and strip, imposing anti-dumping rates of 63.86 percent to 76.64 percent and countervailing duties between 75.60 percent and 190.71 percent.
