The British Government has agreed with UK’s Trade Remedies Authority’s recommendation to extend anti-dumping measures on imports of High Fatigue Performance Steel Concrete Reinforcement Bars from China. The anti-dumping measures will be maintained at their current levels for 5 years from 30 July 2021.Following publication of the TRA’s interim findings in this case, it considered additional submissions from case parties and import data which had become available since the publication of the Statement of Essential Facts. These indicated that falling levels of imports of HFP Rebar from Russia and Belarus were being compensated for by rising imports from other countries. In addition, the TRA expected demand from the UK construction industry to grow less rapidly than previously expected. Taking this additional data into account, the TRA recommended to the Secretary of State to extend the measures on HFP Rebar imports.HFP Rebar, also known as reinforcement steel and reinforcing steel, is typically used in the construction industry to reinforce concrete and masonry structures to strengthen and hold the concrete in tension. The predominant use of HFP Rebar is in construction, which employs an estimated 1.4-2.2M employees and is worth over £ 108B to the UK economy.
