Final Affirmative Determinations: Stainless Steel Angle from Japan, Korea, and Spain

(March 19, 2001)

Background: 

At noon on March 19, 2001, the Department of Commerce (DOC) announced the preliminary determinations in the above-referenced antidumping duty (AD) investigations.

These cases were included in a petition filed on August 18, 2000, against stainless steel angle from Japan, Korea, and Spain. Since we have no participating respondents in these cases, we issued the preliminary determinations early on January 8, 2001. No parties have submitted comments on the preliminary determinations. Therefore, our final determinations remain unchanged from the preliminary determinations.

Petitioners:

The petition in these investigations was filed by Slater Steels Corporation (Speciality Alloys Division) and the United Steelworkers of America, AFL-CIO/CLC.

Product Description:

The merchandise subject to these investigations is stainless steel angle from Japan, Korea, and Spain. The technical language describing the scope of these investigations is in the final determinations notice which will be published in the Federal Register.

MEMORANDUM FOR THE SECRETARY

FROM: Timothy J. Hauser, Acting Under Secretary for International Trade

SUBJECT: Antidumping Duty Investigations of Stainless Steel Angle from Japan, Korea, and Spain
 

At noon on March 19, 2001, the Department of Commerce announced the results of the final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) investigations of stainless steel angle (SSA) from Japan, Korea, and Spain. This decision was made by the Department on March 16, 2001. For the SSA case on Japan, the AD margins ranged from 70.48 to 114.51 percent. For the SSA case on Korea, the AD margins ranged from 40.21 to 99.56 percent. For the SSA case on Spain, the AD margins ranged from 24.32 to 61.45 percent. Because none of the selected producers/exporters of the subject merchandise in each case decided to participate in these investigations, these final determinations were based upon the use of "adverse facts available" as required by the law (section 776 of the Statute).
