USITC Makes Determinations in Five-Year Reviews Concerning Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-to-Length Plate

Alston & Bird obtained a third favorable decision on behalf of Brazilian steel producer USIMINAS before the U.S. International Trade Commission in the sunset review of a tariff case involving certain steel plates produced in Brazil and 11 other countries.

The ITC determined that Brazilian steel plate is no longer harmful to U.S. steel mills, and as a result, the antidumping duty order on Brazilian steel plate that has been in place for over five years will be revoked. This follows two other major ITC victories for USIMINAS: in 2022, the ITC also voted to eliminate antidumping and countervailing duties on both hot-rolled and cold-rolled steel products from Brazil. In all three cases, Brazil was one of several countries under review but the only country to receive a favorable determination from the ITC.

Representing USIMINAS in these cases is partner Lian Yang and special legal consultant Lucas Queiroz Pires of the firm’s International Trade & Regulatory Group.

The case is Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-to-Length Plate from Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, South Africa, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey, Inv. Nos. 701-TA-560-561 and 731-TA-1317-1328 (Review).
