The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) decided to cancel the anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imported structural steel from Canada and Mexico, which determined the above product did not injure the domestic manufacturer.
The United States Department of Commerce (USDOC) stated that the total value of the imported structural steel in the US was around US$722.5 million and US$622.4 million from Canada and Mexico in 2018, respectively. The USDOC imposed anti-dumping duties rate 30.6% and 6.7% for Canadian and Mexican structural steel in January, respectively.
Meanwhile, they also imposed countervailing duties rate of 68.9% for Mexican structural steel.
Recently, the USITC ruled to exempt anti-dumping and countervailing duties on imported structural steel used in beams, girders, columns, plates, and flanges for construction.
