Probe on cold rolled coil imports

Posted on 14 April 2021

The government will initiate an administrative review (sunset review) on the imports of cold rolled coils of alloy and non-alloy steel (subject merchandise) allegedly originating or exported from China, South Korea and Vietnam.

The Ministry of International Trade and Industry said it had received a petition from Mycron Steel CRC Sdn Bhd, requesting for an application of administrative review on the anti-dumping duties imposed on the subject merchandise (of a thickness of between 0.20mm and 2.60mm and width of between 700mm and 1300mm) from the alleged countries.

“The petitioner alleged that imports of the subject merchandise originating or exported from the alleged countries have increased and being dumped in Malaysia at a price much lower than their domestic selling price.

The ministry said a final determination on the investigation would be made within 180 days from the date of initiation.
