WASHINGTON—The U.S. Department of Commerce has made affirmative final antidumping determinations against imports of carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Belarus, the Russian Federation and the United Arab Emirates.
The final antidumping margin found for Belarus was 280.02 percent as a Belarus-wide entity, the agency said in its Nov. 21 determination.
For Russia, the margins were 756.93 percent for Abinsk Electric Steel Works Ltd. and JSC NLMK-Ural, and 436.8 percent for all others.
For the UAE, the margin was 84.1 percent for Emirates Steel Industries PJSC and for all others, the agency said.
Four U.S. steel makers—Gerdau Ameristeel US Inc., Nucor Corp., Keystone Consolidated Industries and Charter Steel—petitioned the International Trade Commission March 28, claiming that carbon and alloy steel wire imports were causing them material injury.
The countries the steel makers cited, besides Belarus, Russia and the UAE, were Ukraine, South Africa, Spain, Italy, South Korea, Turkey and the United Kingdom.
