The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of steel threaded rod from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Jason E. Kearns, Randoph J. Stayin, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative.
This action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act.
The Commission’s public report Steel Threaded Rod from China (Inv. No. 731-TA-1145 (Second Review), USITC Publication 5019, February 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the review.
The report will be available by March 12, 2020; when available, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: https://www.usitc.gov/commission_publications_library.
