Scope

The products covered by this investigation are certain steel grating, consisting of two or more pieces of steel, including load-bearing pieces and cross pieces, joined by any assembly process, regardless of: (1) size or shape; (2) method of manufacture; (3) metallurgy (carbon, alloy, or stainless); (4) the profile of the bars; and (5) whether or not they are galvanized, painted, coated, clad or plated. Steel grating is also commonly referred to as ``bar grating,'' although the components may consist of steel other than bars, such as hot-rolled sheet, plate, or wire rod.  

The scope of this investigation excludes expanded metal grating, which is comprised of a single piece or coil of sheet or thin plate steel that has been slit and expanded, and does not involve welding or joining of multiple pieces of steel. The scope of this investigation also excludes plank type safety grating which is comprised of a single piece or coil of sheet or thin plate steel, typically in thickness of 10 to 18 gauge, that has been pierced and cold formed, and does not involve welding or joining of multiple pieces of steel.

Certain steel grating that is the subject of this investigation is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS') under subheading 7308.90.7000. While the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.

Preliminary antidumping duty rates for steel grating manufacturers set at 14.36% for cooperating producer/exporters, 145.18% for everyone else


On December 29, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its preliminary determination in the antidumping duty (AD) investigation on imports of certain steel grating (steel grating) from China.  Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese producers/exporters have sold steel grating in the United States at 14.36 to 145.18 percent less than normal value.

For the purposes of antidumping investigations, dumping occurs when a foreign company sells a product in the United States at less than fair value.
 
The mandatory respondent, Ningbo Jiulong Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd., received a preliminary dumping rate of 14.36%. The other mandatory respondent, Shanghai DAHE Grating Co., Ltd., stated that it would not participate in this investigation and, as a result, Commerce has preliminarily assigned it a rate of 145.18% as part of the PRC-wide entity.  In this investigation, three other companies have qualified for a separate rate of 14.36%. All other Chinese producers/exporters will receive a preliminary dumping rate of 145.18%.

As a result of this preliminary determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a cash deposit or bond based on these preliminary rates.

On October 27, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced its affirmative
preliminary determination in the countervailing duty investigation on imports of certain steel grating from the People’s Republic of China (China).

Subsidies are financial assistance from foreign governments that benefit the production, manufacture, or exportation of goods.

The products covered by this investigation are certain steel grating, consisting of two or more pieces of steel, including load-bearing pieces and cross pieces, joined by any assembly process, regardless of: (1) size or shape; (2) method of manufacture; (3) metallurgy (carbon, alloy, or stainless); (4) the profile of the bars; and (5) whether or not they are galvanized, painted, coated, clad or plated.

The products covered by this investigation are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item number: 7308.90.7000. While the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, Commerce’s written description of the subject merchandise governs the scope of this investigation.

Mandatory respondent, Ningbo Jiulong Machinery Manufacturing Company, received a net subsidy rate of 7.44 percent.  All-others will be subject to this same subsidy rate.

As a result of this preliminary determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a cash deposit or bond based on these preliminary rates.
