ITC MAKES DETERMINATIONS IN FIVE-YEAR (SUNSET) REVIEW REMAND CONCERNING CERTAIN CARBON STEEL PRODUCTS (CUT-TO-LENGTH PLATE) FROM BELGIUM AND GERMANY

The United States International Trade Commission (ITC) today determined on remand that revoking the existing countervailing duty and antidumping duty orders on imports of certain carbon steel products (cut-to-length plate) from Belgium and Germany would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.

All four Commissioners made affirmative determinations.

The reviews involving these products were remanded to the ITC by the U.S. Court of International Trade (CIT) on December 20, 2002. The ITC had previously made affirmative determinations in the original five-year (sunset) reviews in November 2000 and in the first remand of thse reviews in July 2002.

The ITC's remand determination will be delivered to the CIT by March 28, 2003.

The ITC's public report Certain Carbon Steel Products (Cut-to-Length Plate) from Belgium and Germany (Invs. Nos. 701-TA-319 and 322 and 731-TA-573 and 578 (Review) (Remand), USITC Publication 3587, March 2003) will contain the views of the Commission. Copies of the report are expected to be available after April 18, 2003, by calling 202-205-1809 or from the Office of the Secretary, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436. Requests may also be faxed to 202- 205-2104.
