Commerce Finds Dumping in Preliminary Phase of Threaded Rod Case
Acting on petitions filed by Schagrin Associates on behalf of Vulcan Threaded Products, Inc., the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) today announced preliminary antidumping duties on steel threaded rod from China, India, and Taiwan. The preliminary duties range from 2.04% to 59.45%. Commerce had previously preliminarily found that imports of steel threaded rod from Thailand are dumped and that imports from China and India are subsidized.
The U.S. International Trade Commission (“USITC”) found a reasonable indication that the U.S. industry producing steel threaded rod is materially injured by subject imports on April 5. The USITC is expected to make its final vote on injury on November 15. If the USITC votes in the affirmative in the final phase of its investigation and Commerce continues to find countervailable subsidies and dumping in its final determinations, Commerce will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders.
