The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) announced its determinations in its five-year reviews concerning the countervailing duty and antidumping duty orders on certain carbon steel products from Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom.

With respect to cut-to-length plate from Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom, all six Commissioners made negative determinations.

With respect to corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Germany and Korea, all six Commissioners made affirmative determinations.

With respect to corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Australia, Canada, France, and Japan, chairman Daniel R. Pearson, vice chairman Shara L. Aranoff, and commissioners Jennifer A. Hillman and Deanna Tanner Okun made negative determinations; Commissioners Stephen Koplan and Charlotte R. Lane made affirmative determinations.

As a result of the Commission's affirmative determinations and the Department of Commerce's recent affirmative findings, the existing orders on imports of corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Germany and Korea will remain in place.

As a result of the Commission's negative determinations, the existing orders on imports of cut-to-length plate from Belgium, Brazil, Finland, Germany, Mexico, Poland, Romania, Spain, Sweden, Taiwan, and the United Kingdom and the orders on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Australia, Canada, France, and Japan will be revoked.
