US DOC voted to keep AD & CVD orders on certain wire rod imports

The final determination of the US Department of Commerce (DOC) in the expedited sunset reviews of the antidumping orders on carbon and certain alloy wire rods from the below listed countries was made on October the 23rd, and the DOC concluded that the revocation of the orders would likely lead to the continuation of recurrence of dumping.

The list of the countries subject to ad/CVD orders is as follows:

  • Brazil
  • Indonesia
  • Mexico
  • Moldova
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • Ukraine

This came as no surprise to the industry. The department had also made an affirmative determination in its sunset review of the countervailing duty order on wire rod imports from Brazil.

However, The US International Trade Commission (ITC) is conducting a full sunset review of the mentioned orders, and a negative injury determination by the ITC will result in the revocation of the orders regardless of the DOC determinations.
