Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar From Mexico And Turkey Injures U.S. Industry, Says USITC

The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of steel concrete reinforcing bar from Mexico that are sold in the United States at less than fair value and from Turkey that are subsidized by the government of Turkey.

All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative.

As a result of the USITC's affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order on imports of this product from Mexico and a countervailing duty order on imports of this product from Turkey.

The Commission's public report Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar from Mexico and Turkey (Investigation Nos. 701-TA-502 and 731-TA-1227 (Final), USITC Publication 4496, October 2014) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.

The report will be available after November 13, 2014. After that date, it may be accessed on the USITC website at: http://pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
