Brazil warns about expiration of AD duties applied on steel imports

Sao Paulo (Platts)--1 Dec 2017 540 pm EST/2240 GMT


Brazil's Foreign Trade Secretariat said Friday four antidumping measures applied on rolled steel products imports from China, Korea, Taiwan and some other countries will end in 2018.

According to a report published in Brazil's official gazette, parties interested in a review of these measures need to file a petition at least four months before they expire.

For imports of non-grain-oriented steel sheet from China, South Korea and Taiwan, the antidumping measure applied will end July 17. These products are identified under HS codes 7225.1900 and 7226.1900.

The AD duty imposed on imports of welded austenitic stainless tubes grades 304 and 316 identified under HS codes 7306.4000 and 7306.9020 from China and Taiwan will expire July 29. The goods subject to this measure are tubes with an outer diameter of 6 mm (a quarter inch) or less and 2,032 mm (80 inches), with a thickness of 0.40 mm or more but not exceeding 12.70 mm.

Imports of cold rolled sheets of austenitic stainless steel type 304 (304, 304L and 304H) and ferritic stainless steel type 430 of a thickness of 0.35 mm or more, but less than 4.75 mm from Germany, China, South Korea, Finland, Taiwan and Vietnam will see the AD measure expire October 4. These goods are identified under HS codes 7219.3200, 7219.3300, 7219.3400, 7219.3500 and 7220.2090.

Last but not least, the antidumping duty applied on imports of seamless pipes and tubes used for oil or gas pipelines of an external diameter exceeding 5 inches (141.3 mm) but not exceeding 14 inches (355.6 mm) from China will expire November 4. These goods are identified under HS code 7304.1900.
