Preliminary Determinations in the Countervailing Duty Investigations on Certain Cold-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat Products from Argentina, Brazil, France, and Korea
On February 26, 2002, the Department of Commerce (the Department) announced the preliminary determinations for the above-referenced investigations. We found that producers/exporters of certain cold-rolled carbon steel flat products (cold-rolled steel) from Brazil, France, and Korea have benefitted from countervailable subsidies. However, the Department did not find that producers/exporters from Argentina benefitted from countervailable subsidies.
Background: On September 28, 2001, U.S. producers of cold-rolled steel filed petitions with the Department requesting the initiation of antidumping (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations on imports of cold-rolled steel from Argentina, Brazil, France, and Korea (both AD and CVD), and Australia, Belgium, Germany, India, Japan, Netherlands, New Zealand, the Peoples Republic of China, the Russian Federation, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, and Venezuela (AD only). On November 13, 2001, the International Trade Commission issued its preliminary affirmative injury determinations.
The Departments preliminary determinations for the AD cold-rolled investigations are scheduled to be announced on April 29, 2002.
