Feds find steel dumping from Canada China Mexico

Back To Front Page


The U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) is announcing affirmative final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of fabricated structural steel (FSS) from Canada (AD only), China and Mexico, and a negative final determination in the CVD investigation of FSS from Canada.

Commerce determined that producers and/or exporters from Canada, China, and Mexico have sold FSS at less than fair value in the United States at rates of 0-6.70 percent, 61.71-154.14 percent, and 0-30.58 percent respectively.

In addition, Commerce determined that producers and/or exporters from China and Mexico received countervailable subsidies at rates of 27.34-206.49 percent and 0.01-68.87 percent respectively.

Because Commerce reached a negative CVD determination with respect to producers and/or exporters from Canada, this investigation is terminated and no CVD duties will be collected on imports from Canada.

In 2018, imports of FSS from Canada, China, and Mexico were valued at an estimated $722.5 million, $897.5 million, and $622.4 million respectively.

The petitioner is the American Institute of Steel Construction Full Member Subgroup (Chicago).

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is currently scheduled to make its final injury determinations on or about March 9. If the ITC makes affirmative final injury determinations, Commerce will issue AD and CVD orders. If the ITC makes negative final determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated, and no orders will be issued.
