In 2017, China’s ministry of commerce website news, a motion according to the American iron and steel company, the United States international trade commission (ITC) administrative law judge released preliminary (56 order), termination of the carbon steel and alloy steel 337 investigation about the commercial secrets charges. The ITC are expected to 30 days after a final decision to terminate the investigation. At this point, the United States in 337 surveys of China’s iron and steel in whole.
As carbon steel pipe, welded steel pipe, line pipe, galvanized pipe, submerged arc weld spiral welded pipe, scaffolding and other products are exported to foreign service providers, Shinestar group have been very concerned about the survey. We believe that America’s unprecedented for Chinese iron and steel products, 337, with a clear “protectionism” colour, its application and accused of “not based on facts”.
After us steel companies to the United States international trade commission to apply for investigation, request for China’s exports of carbon steel and alloy steel products in the United States filed a 337 survey.
American iron and steel company was charges including three: first, conspiring to pricing, and manipulation of the output and export amount. Second, the occupation and the illegal use of commercial secrets of the American iron and steel company. Third, using a false of origin and manufacturers. American iron and steel company also claims that the behavior of China’s steel enterprises to lead to serious loss of domestic iron and steel enterprises and rising unemployment, thus constitutes a harm or damage to the domestic industry.
However, so far, the American iron and steel company charges for Chinese iron and steel industry have all failed. As this time the commercial secrets charges of the termination of the investigation, the us international trade commission has terminated all survey of three charges.
In November 2016, the us international trade commission to make preliminary administrative law judge, identified the applicant fails to in accordance with the requirements of the United States antitrust law to prove its monopoly damage to, or fails to provide factual evidence for the predatory pricing behaviors, so the decision to end the first survey.
Then in January 2017, the us international trade commission, citing a lack of direct evidence to terminate the third survey charges, the investigation about the forgery of certificates of country of origin charges. Of course, Chinese steel mills still need to wait for the us international trade commission established and final decision of the President of the United States.
In the future, we need to more actively in the face of complicated international and domestic economic situation, with import and export environment Shinestar group will adhere to independent innovation, to pay more attention to the cultivation technology, brand, quality and service as the core of new foreign trade competitive advantage, strive to produce more high quality carbon steel pipe, welded steel pipe, line pipe, galvanized pipe, submerged arc weld spiral welded pipe, scaffolding, and other products, to create an internationally competitive iron and steel group.
