In Commerce’s final decision, GOES imports, used in large and medium-sized electrical power transformers, will face duties from 13.76 to 35.93% – higher than Commerce’s preliminary decision.

ArcelorMittal Frydek-Mistek AS received a final dumping margin of 13.76%. Sujani Enterprises received a final dumping margin of 35.93% based on adverse facts available because it failed to cooperate. All other producers/exporters in the Czech Republic received a final dumping margin of 13.76%.

US-based GOES producers AK Steel and Allegheny Technologies Inc. (ATI) filed the initial complaint with commerce as part of a wide-ranging legal strategy to fight dumping of foreign GOES.
