On 26 July the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) initiated a sunset review of the anti-dumping duties on wire ropes and cables of a diameter exceeding 32mm originating in or imported from the United Kingdom and Germany and on stranded wire of a diameter exceeding or equal to 12.7mm originating in or imported from China on which comment is due by 26 August.
The application was lodged by Scaw South Africa Proprietary Limited, the sole producer of the product under investigation. The applicant alleges that the expiry of the anti-dumping duties would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping and the recurrence of material injury.
The dumping margin for the UK was calculated at 70.54%, 45.79% for Germany, and 75.99% for China.
