the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of imports of stainless steel sheet and strip
  • 2016-12-19

This is  Cong Shine (shanghai) metal matericl co.,ltd . On September 12, 2016, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative preliminary determination in the antidumping duty (AD) investigation of imports of stainless steel sheet and strip from the People’s Republic of China (China).

Commerce preliminarily found that dumping has occurred by mandatory respondents, Shanxi Taigang Stainless Steel Co., Ltd. and Tianjin Taigang  Metal Product Co., Ltd. Commerce also determined that the mandatory respondents are not eligible for a separate rate, and therefore part of the China-wide entity. Commerce calculated a preliminary dumping margin of 63.86 percent for the non-selected respondents eligible for a separate rate. Commerce preliminarily assigned adumping margin of 76.64 percent based on adverse facts available for all other producers/exporters in China that are part of the China-wide entity due to their failure to respond to Commerce’s requests for information.

Commerce is scheduled to announce its final determination on or about November 25, 2016. If Commerce makes an affirmative final determination on the  stainless steel sheet and strip antidumping duty, and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) makes an affirmative final determination that imports of stainless steel sheet and strip from China materially injure, or threaten material injury to, the domestic industry, Commerce will issue an AD order. If either Commerce’s or the ITC’s final determination is negative, no AD order will be issued. The ITC is scheduled to make its final injury determination in January 2017.
