U.S. Agency Votes to Continue Trade Cases on Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of grain-oriented electrical steel from China, Czech Republic, Germany, Japan, Korea, Poland, and Russia that are allegedly sold in the U.S. at less than fair value and that are allegedly subsidized by the government of China.

All six commissioners voted in the affirmative.

As a result of the ITC’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its investigations on imports of this product, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about 30 December 2013, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about 13 March 2014.
