US Department of Commerce & the US International Trade Commission determinations that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from Belgium, South Africa and Taiwan and the countervailing duty order on Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from South Africa would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping, net countervailable subsidies, and material injury to an industry in the United States, US DOC has published a notice of continuation of the AD orders and the CAT order. US DOC has ordered the continuation of the Orders on SSPC from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan.
US Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD and CAT cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise.
On 11 May 1999, US DOC published the CVD Order on Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from South Africa & on 21 1999, US DOC published the AD Orders on Stainless Steel Plate in Coils from Belgium, South Africa and Taiwan On 1 December 2021, US DOC published the initiation of the fourth sunset reviews of the orders and the ITC instituted its review of the orders. As a result of its reviews, US DOC determined that that revocation of the AD Orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD Order would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies. US DOC, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins and net countervailable subsidy rates likely to prevail should the Orders be revoked. On 25 July 2022, the ITC published its determination that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.
