BEIJING (Scrap Register): A provisional anti dumping duties of 17.2 percent to 28.5 percent for imports of corrosion-resistant coated steel from China was imposed by the European Commission.
This move is on the back of trade actions targeting imports from China and means tariffs have been imposed across the primary flat products suite, duties are already in place for hot rolled coil, cold rolled coil and plate.
“Imports of flat-rolled products of iron or alloy steel or non-alloy steel; aluminium killed; plated or coated by hot dip galvanisation with zinc and/or with aluminium, and no other metal; chemically passivated; containing by weight: 0.015% or more but not more than 0.170% of carbon, 0.015% or more but not more than 0.100% of aluminium, not more than 0.045% of niobium, not more than 0.010% of titanium and not more than 0.010% of vanadium; presented in coils, cut-to-length sheets and narrow strips." as per the officials.
