U.S. DoC Issues Preliminary AD Duty Determinations on Carbon and Alloy Steel Threaded Rod from China, India, and Taiwan
2019-10-08

     On Sep. 20, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) investigations of imports of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from China, India, and Taiwan, finding that exporters from China, India, and Taiwan have dumped carbon and alloy steel threaded rod at the following rates:

China – 4.81 percent to 59.45 percent

India – 2.04 percent

Taiwan – 32.26 percent

     As a result of today’s decisions, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from China, India, and Taiwan as applicable.

     In 2018, imports of carbon and alloy steel threaded rod from China, India, and Taiwan were valued at an estimated $325 million, $111 million, and $156 million, respectively.

     The petitioner is Vulcan Threaded Products, Inc. (Pelham, AL).

     Commerce is scheduled to announce the final determination with respect to Taiwan on or about December 4, 2019, and with respect to China and India, on or about February 11, 2020.

     If Commerce’s final determinations are affirmative, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) will be scheduled to make its final injury determination with respect to Taiwan on or about January 24, 2020, and with respect to China and India, on or about March 26, 2020. If Commerce makes affirmative final determinations of dumping, and the ITC makes affirmative final injury determinations, Commerce will issue AD orders. If Commerce makes negative final determinations of dumping, or the ITC makes negative final determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated and no orders will be issued.
