AD Notices: Steel Wire Rod, Steel Pipe
AD Duty Order on Steel Wire Rod from India Likely to be Continued. In its expedited sunset review of the antidumping duty order on certain stainless steel wire rods from India, the International Trade Administration has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. If the International Trade Commission determines that revocation of this order would also be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of injury to a domestic party, the order will be continued for another five years; otherwise, it will be revoked.
The wire rods covered by this AD duty order are hot-rolled or hot-rolled annealed and/or pickled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons or other shapes, in coils. Wire rods are made of alloy steels containing, by weight, 1.2% or less of carbon and 10.5% or more of chromium, with or without other elements. These products are only manufactured by hot-rolling and are normally sold in coiled form and are of solid cross section. The majority of wire rods sold in the U.S. are round in cross-section shape, annealed and pickled. The most common size is 5.5 millimeters in diameter. The wire rods subject to this order are currently classifiable under HTSUS 7221.00.0005, 7221.00.0015, 7221.00.0030, 7221.00.0045 and 7221.00.0075.
