Thailand may slap anti-dumping tax on Vietnam steel sheets

HCMC – Thailand may impose anti-dumping tariffs of up to 60.26% on color-coated steel sheets imports from Vietnam, according to the Vietnam Competition Authority under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

The Department of Foreign Trade (DFT) under the Thai Ministry of Commerce on December 12 released preliminary results of an anti-dumping probe into Vietnam’s color-coated steel sheets, including painted hot-dip galvanized cold rolled steel, or aluminum zinc alloy-coated cold rolled steel, with dumping margins expected to range from 4.51% to 60.26%.

DFT will give relevant businesses and agencies from Vietnam a chance to respond to the investigation results and send evidence to the department by January 6 before a hearing is organized on January 16.

The Thai agency said it had got a dumping investigation petition from NS BlueScope Company for an alleged dumping margin of up to 89.58% in September last year.



Statistics of the Vietnam Competition Authority show that the country’s exported steel products are subject to most anti-dumping lawsuits. As of May 2016, there had been 25 trade cases against Vietnam’s steel products, of which 18 were anti-dumping ones initiated by ASEAN nations like Thailand and Malaysia.

Earlier, the Vietnam Steel Association had requested producers of metallic-coated and color-coated steel sheets to reduce their export shipments and control selling prices to the Malaysian and Thai markets for risks of anti-dumping measures.

Steel firms of these two nations have repeatedly complained about huge volumes of Vietnam’s steel products imported into their countries at low prices, adversely affecting their production.

Korea launches anti-dumping investigation into Vietnam’s alloy steel

HCMC – The Korea Trade Commission (KTC) has decided to launch an anti-dumping investigation into alloy steel imports from Vietnam, Ukraine, and India, according to the Vietnam Competition Authority at the Ministry of Industry and Trade.
The KTC decision comes after Korean firms, including Dongbu Metal, Simpac Metalloy, and Taekyung Industrial, which manufacture and sell alloy products, sent their petitions to KTC in September this year.

This is the second time Korea has opened anti-dumping and anti-subsidy investigations into Vietnamese products, according to the Vietnam Chamber of Commerce and Industry (VCCI).
The competition authority said KTC has named one Vietnamese firm on the list of enterprises to be inspected. However, other firms that want to voluntarily join the probe can send a request to the commission.
It is expected that KTC will make a preliminary investigation in three months, starting from December 7 to March 6, and announce its official results in June.
The current stringent economic climate, along with the removal of tariff barriers thanks to the Free Trade Agreements (FTAs), has prompted many countries to launch anti-dumping and anti-subsidy probes against imports as a way to prevent risks and injuries for their local industries.

The Vietnam Competition Authority (Ministry of Industry and Trade) has just received the dossier requesting the application of anti-dumping measures on H-shaped steel product imported from China to Vietnam.

According to Vietnam Competition Authority, they have received full and valid dossier under the provisions of the anti-dumping law for goods imported to Vietnam.
Within 45 days from the date of receipt of full and valid documents, the investigation agency will assess the dossier and submit to the Minister of Industry and Trade for consideration and decide to or not to investigate.
In order to serve the assessment, as well as ensuring the legitimate rights and interests of enterprises, the investigation agency suggested that domestic enterprises which are manufacturing/trading similar goods to provide the following information : Information on enterprises; design capacity and productivity of the H-shaped steel product in 2013, 2014, 2015 and the first 6 months of 2016; the company’s comments on the case (agree, oppose, no opinion); any documents/evidence that companies consider relevant to the case.
Since the law on trade remedies is issued, Vietnam has 4 times issued the investigation decision on anti-dumping against imported steel products to Vietnam. Accordingly, there is one case of anti-dumping duty application to cold-rolled stainless steel product and 3 self-defense cases for the steel billet and long steel products (the Ministry of Industry and Trade has signed decision to impose safeguard duty for plated steel and painted galvanized steel.
The application of trade defense measures will certainly cause conflict of interest between the 2 groups of enterprises. However, according to the Vietnam Steel Association, the application is necessary to protect domestic production.
