Indonesia will initiate a sunset review anti-dumping (AD) duties on imports of steel — alloy and non-alloy cold-rolled coils — from China, South Korea and Vietnam after evaluating and considering the evidence of dumping submitted by Mycron Steel CRC Sdn Bhd.
The government received the petition from Mycron on March 15, requesting for an administrative review of anti-dumping duties imposed on imports of cold-rolled coils of alloy and non-alloy steel of a thickness of 0.2mm to 2.6mm and a width of 700mm to 1,300mm from the three countries. The anti-dumping duties are slated to expire on May 23.
Indonesia’s Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI) said a final determination on the investigation will be made within 180 days from the date of initiation, in accordance with the Countervailing and Anti-Dumping Duties Act 1993 and the Countervailing and Anti-Dumping Duties Regulations 1994.
If the final determination is affirmative, the government will impose an anti-dumping duty that is necessary to prevent further injury to the domestic industry, the ministry said.
