The United States International Trade Commission has determined that there is a reasonable indication that a US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of standard steel welded wire mesh from Mexico that are allegedly subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the US Department of Commerce will continue its investigations of imports of standard steel welded wire mesh from Mexico, with its preliminary countervailing duty determination due on or about September 23, 2020, and its preliminary antidumping duty determination due on or about December 7, 2020.

Product Description: Standard welded steel wire mesh is designed for concrete reinforcement, consisting of square or rectangular grids of uniformly spaced carbon-steel smooth (with a uniform surface) or deformed (with a transverse indented or ribbed surface) wires that are welded together at all intersections, and is packaged and sold in rolls or sheets. The subject wire mesh is currently produced to meet ASTM specification A1064/A1064M, comparable foreign specifications (e.g., DIN, JIS, etc.), or proprietary specifications, which specify the wire gauges (diameters), spacing between transverse and longitudinal wires, and length and width combinations. Specifically excluded are galvanized wire mesh and epoxy-coated wire mesh.

Status of Proceedings:

1. Type of investigations: Preliminary antidumping and countervailing duty investigations.
2. Petitioners: Insteel Industries Inc Mount Airy NC; Mid-South Wire Co Nashville TN; National Wire LLC Conroe TX; Oklahoma Steel & Wire Co Madill OK; and Wire Mesh Corp Houston TX
3. USITC Institution Date: Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
4. USITC Conference Date: Tuesday, July 21, 2020 (conducted through written statements, testimony, and questions and responses (July 17-July 24, 2020)).
5. USITC Vote Date: Thursday, August 13, 2020.
6. USITC Notification to Commerce Date: Friday, August 14, 2020.
