The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) has ruled against revoking antidumping (AD) and countervailing (CV) duties on steel imports from seven countries at the end of two five-year sunset reviews.
In one review, the USITC revisited the current AD/CV duties on light-walled rectangular pipes and tubes from China, South Korea, Mexico, and Turkey to determine whether they were still valid five years after first being imposed.
