Dumpwatch: ITC Finds Imports of Non-Oriented Electrical Steel Dumped in the US

by on

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) recently determined that US industry is materially injured by imports of non-oriented electrical steel (NOES) from China, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan that are sold here at less than fair value and that are alleged to have been subsidized.

AK Steel Corporation filed petitions on September 30, 2013, charging that imports of NOES were unfairly traded. On October 7, 2014, the Department of Commerce announced its final affirmative determinations that imports of NOES were dumped from all six countries and that imports from China and Taiwan were also subsidized.

As a result of the ITC’s final affirmative determination, the Commerce Department will instruct Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to continue to require US importers of NOES from these countries to deposit estimated antidumping duties at the time of importation, as follows: China, 407.52%; Germany, 86.29 – 98.84%; Japan, 135.59 – 204.79%; South Korea, 6.88%; Sweden, 98.46 – 126.72%; and Taiwan, 27.54 – 52.23%.
