Investigation into the alleged dumping of other flat-rolled products

23 Feb 2024

The South African Coil Coaters Association (“SACCA” or “the Applicant”), an industry body of the Southern African Customs Union (“SACU”) industry, lodged an application for an anti-dumping investigation on other flat-rolled products of iron or non-alloy steel, of a width of 600 mm or more, otherwise plated or coated with zinc, of a thickness of less than 0,45 mm, classifiable under tariff subheading HS 7210.49.10, originating in or imported from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).

ArcelorMittal South Africa Limited (AMSA) is the major producer of the subject product and provided material injury information.

The International Trade Administration Commission (“ITAC” or the “Commission”) was provided with written and oral information by the Applicant and interested parties, together with the verified producer/exporter’s information, and responses thereto.

The Commission considered all the relevant information available at its disposal, in particular, that related to dumping, material injury and causality. The Commission made a final determination that:

• dumping of the subject product originating in or imported from the PRC is taking place;
• the SACU industry is experiencing material injury and;
• there is a causal link between the alleged dumped imports and the material injury experienced by the SACU industry.

The Commission made a final determination to recommend to the Minister of Trade, Industry and Competition that definitive anti-dumping duties be imposed against imports of the subject product originating in or imported from the PRC.
