USITC Votes for AD Duty on Steel Wire Mesh Import from Mexico
The United States International Trade Commission has determined that US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of standard steel welded wire mesh from Mexico that the US Department of Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determination, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order on imports of these products from Mexico.
The scope of this investigation covers uncoated standard welded steel reinforcement wire mesh (standard wire mesh) produced from smooth or deformed wire. Standard wire mesh is produced in square and rectangular grids of uniformly spaced steel wires that are welded at all intersections. Sizes are specified by combining the spacing of the wires in inches or millimeters and the wire cross-sectional area in hundredths of a square inch or millimeters squared. Standard wire mesh may be packaged and sold in rolls or in sheets.
