The US Department of Commerce (US DOC) has announced its final determinations in the antidumping (AD) duty investigation of rebar imports from Japan and Turkey and also its final determination in the countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of rebar from Turkey.

Accordingly, the US DOC has calculated final dumping margins ranging from 5.39 percent and 209.46 percent for the two countries in question. Meanwhile, the final subsidy margin for Turkish producer Habas Sinai ve Tibbi Gazlar Istihsal Endustrisi A.S. (HABAS) stands at 16.21 percent.
