The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that revoking the existing countervailing duty order on imports of heavy iron construction castings from Brazil, the existing antidumping duty orders on heavy and light iron construction castings from Brazil and China, and the existing antidumping duty order on heavy iron construction castings from Canada would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from Brazil, Canada, and China will remain in place.
Chair Jason E. Kearns, Vice Chair Randolph J. Stayin, and Commissioners David S. Johanson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Amy A. Karpel voted in the affirmative.
Today’s action comes under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. See the attached page for background on these five-year (sunset) reviews.
The Commission’s public report Iron Construction Castings from Brazil, Canada, and China (Inv. Nos. 701-TA-249 and 731-TA-262, 263, and 265 (Fifth Review), USITC Publication 5324, May 2022) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the reviews.
