  • After being in effect for nearly 12 years, on January 5, 2009 the Commerce Department revoked the antidumping order on steel concrete reinforcing bars (rebar) from Turkey.

    This action was taken after the U.S. International Trade Commission determined in a sunset review that revocation of the antidumping order would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time.

    As a result of the revocation of the antidumping order, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will discontinue suspension of liquidation and collection of cash deposits on entries of the subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after March 26, 2008, the effective date of revocation of the antidumping duty order.

    The goods covered by this antidumping order included all stock deformed steel concrete reinforcing bars sold in straight lengths and coils (classifiable under subheadings 7213.10.000 and 7214.20.000 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the U.S.). Plain round rebar, further worked or fabricated rebar and coated rebar were excluded from the scope of the antidumping order.
