The U.S. Commerce Department’s International Trade Administration (ITA) in a final decision has levied anti-dumping margins of 16.74 to 119.87% on imports of steel threaded rod from India.

In addition, Commerce determined that Indian imports have received countervailable subsidies of 8.61 to 39.46% according to the July 7th decision.

In the anti-dumping investigation, mandatory respondents Mangal Steel Enterprises Limited and Babu Exports received final dumping margins of 16.74% and 119.87%, respectively. Babu Export’s margin is based on adverse facts available because it failed to respond to Commerce’s questionnaire. All other producers in India received the 16.75% rate according to Commerce.

In the countervailing duty investigation, mandatory respondents Mangal Steel Enterprises Limited and Babu Exports received final subsidy rates of 8.61% and 39.46% respectively. All other producers/exporters received the 8.61% rate.

Steel threaded rod imports from India were valued at $19 million in 2013.
