The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of non-oriented electrical steel from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan and the countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from China and Taiwan 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 determinations, the existing orders on imports of this product from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan will remain in place.
Chair Jason E. Kearns, Vice Chair Randolph J. Stayin, and Commissioners David S. Johanson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative.
Today’s action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. See the attached page for background on these five-year (sunset) reviews.
The Commission’s public report Non-Oriented Electrical Steel from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-506 & 508 and 731-TA-1238-1243 (Review), USITC Publication 5140, December 2020) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the reviews.
