The United States International Trade Commission determined that there is a reasonable indication that a US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of fabricated structural steel from Canada, China, and 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 with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of this product from Canada, China, and Mexico, with its preliminary countervailing duty determinations due on or about May 1, 2019, and its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about July 15, 2019.

FSS products, whether assembled or partially assembled, may include fasteners and may be painted or coated. Specifically excluded are (1) fabricated concrete reinforcing bar, (2) FSS for bridge and bridge sections, (3) pre-engineered building systems, (4) steel roof and floor decking systems, and (5) open-web steel bar joists and joist girders.
