CVD determination - Carbon and alloy steel wire rod imported from China 

July 2: The International Trade Administration (ITA) announced that the U.S. Commerce Department reached an affirmative preliminarily determination in a countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of imports of carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from China.

According to the ITA release [PDF 87 KB], as a result of this preliminary affirmative determination under the CVD regime, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require cash deposits based on the the preliminary CVD rates.

What’s next?

Commerce is scheduled to announce its final determination in this investigation on or about November 12, 2014, since it has been aligned with the final determination in the companion antidumping duty (ADD) investigation of carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from China.


  • If Commerce makes an affirmative final determination, and the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) makes an affirmative final determination that imports of carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from China materially injure, or threaten material injury to, the domestic industry, Commerce will issue a CVD order.
  • If either Commerce’s or the ITC’s final determination is negative, no CVD order will be issued.

The ITC is scheduled to make its final injury determination approximately 45 days after Commerce issues its final determination, if affirmative.
