Canadian Institute of Steel Construction is pleased with the findings of the US Department of Commerce’s preliminary determination in the countervailing duty investigations of imported fabricated structural steel from Canada. In their assessment, the DOC evaluated a negative determination, indicating that Canadian exporters do not receive countervailable subsidies from Canadian governments. Mr Ed Whalen, President & CEO of the CISC said that “This is fantastic news for Canada, the Canadian steel industries and Canadian workers. We are pleased to demonstrate that our steel industry, alongside the Canadian governments, have been and are presently operating within the rules of the World Trade Organization.”

The Canadian steel industry has been under investigation by the DOC for the past few months as part of an active anti-dumping and subsidy trade case on imports of FSS from Canada, Mexico and China, launched by the American Institute of Steel Construction in February 2019. Further on-site investigations will be performed before the DOC’s final determination, which is expected near the end of this year. This will determine if the countries named will receive countervailing duties on imported FSS.

Upon further investigation, the CISC is confident that the DOC will continue to discover that Canadian fabricators of structural steel compete fairly in worldwide markets, including the United States. The CISC will continue to support and defend our industry’s interests throughout these investigations.
