Department of Commerce Issues Final Antidumping Duty Determinations for Tin Mill Products from Multiple Trading Partners and the Final Countervailing Duty Determination for Tin Mill Products from the People’s Republic of China

Today, the U.S. Department of Commerce announced its findings that imports of tin mill products from Canada, China, Germany, and the Republic of Korea are being unfairly priced, i.e., dumped, into the U.S. market, and imports of tin mill products from China are also being subsidized. Commerce also finds that imports of tin mill products from the Netherlands, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United Kingdom are not being dumped. Commerce’s antidumping and countervailing duty (AD/CVD) cases investigate the behavior of and seek to hold foreign producers accountable for their unfair trade practices. These findings demonstrate that Commerce took a careful and nuanced approach based on the particular circumstances presented by each company and the governing provisions of U.S. law. This determination underscores Commerce’s commitment to remedying unfair trade practices, to which U.S. workers, companies, and farmers are entitled under U.S. law.

After a thorough, transparent, and data-driven investigation, Commerce determined the following duty rates:

* This rate is based on an adverse inference.

Commerce’s final determinations affirm the preliminary determinations with the exception of its investigation into imports of Korean tin mill products. Following the preliminary determinations, Commerce’s investigators completed rigorous, fact-intensive audits of the information companies submitted as part of the investigations, as required by law. As part of these audits, one Korean company submitted corrections which resulted in changes to Commerce’s dumping calculations and an affirmative final finding of dumping. Further, following the preliminary determinations and audits, interested parties submitted comments which Commerce evaluated as part of its quasi-judicial, transparent process. Accordingly, some of the rates have changed based on consideration of public comment.

Following the issuance of our final determinations, an independent agency, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), will determine whether the domestic industry has been materially harmed or threatened by material injury by the unfairly traded imports. While Commerce’s investigation focuses on unfair trade practices abroad, the ITC considers the impact on the U.S. industry. Only if both agencies come to affirmative final determinations can a trade remedy order and final duties go into effect.

Because Commerce has reached negative final determinations with respect to imports from the Netherlands, Taiwan, Turkey, and the United Kingdom, these investigations will be terminated, and no final duties will go into effect.
