On August 23, 2019, Dale Seymour, the Commissioner of the Anti-Dumping Commission (the Commission), have initiated a review of the anti-dumping measures applying to certain zinc coated (galvanised) steel exported to Australia from the People’s Republic of China (China), the Republic of India (India), the Republic and Korea (Korea), Malaysia, Taiwan, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam (Vietnam) and a review of anti-dumping measures applying to certain aluminum zinc coated steel exported to Australia from China.

The reviews will examine whether the variable factors relevant to the taking of the anti dumping measures, as they affect exporters of the goods, have changed.

The goods that will be reviewed are Flat rolled products of iron and non-alloy steel of a width less than 600mm and, equal to or greater than 600mm, plated or coated with zinc and Flat rolled iron or steel products containing alloys of a width less than 600mm and, equal to or greater than 600mm, plated or coated with zinc exported from China, Korea and Taiwan; and Flat rolled iron and steel products (whether or not containing alloys) that are plated or coated with zinc exported to Australia from India, Malaysia and Vietnam.
