The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) on Tuesday determined that the US industry is not materially injured or threatened by imports of Fabricated Structural Steel (FSS) from Canada, China, and Mexico. As a result, USITC has withdrawn the anti-dumping and countervailing duties imposed on such products originating from these countries.
On Jan 24, the US Commerce Department had levied countervailing duties of 27.34-206.49pc on exports of FSS by Chinese producers. Exports from Mexico were subject to duties of 0.01-68.87pc. Canada was exempted from these duties.
In 2018, imports of FSS from Canada, China and Mexico were estimated at $722.5mn, $897.5mn and $622.4mn, respectively, according to US Commerce.
