The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that a U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of tin mill products from Canada, China, and Germany that the U.S. Department of Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the Government of China.
The Commission further found that the imports of these products from South Korea that Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value are negligible and voted to terminate the antidumping duty investigation concerning South Korea.
As a result of the Commission’s negative determinations, no antidumping and countervailing duty orders will be imposed on imports for Canada, China, and Germany. As a result of the finding of negligibility, the antidumping duty investigation regarding imports from South Korea will be terminated.
In January 2024, Commerce had made an affirmative final determination of dumping on tin mill steel from Canada and announced a final antidumping (AD) duty rate of 5.27% on these imports.
Final AD duties are only applied if the USITC determines that the allegedly dumped tin mill steel imports have caused, or threaten to cause, material injury to the U.S. industry.
Since the USITC’s determination was negative, the investigations will be terminated, and any provisional AD duties collected from Canadian tin mill steel producers since August 17, 2023 will be refunded.
