On November 9, 2018, the government initiated an administrative review investigation concerning anti-dumping duties imposed on imports of cold rolled coils of alloy and non-alloy steel originating from China, South Korea and Vietnam.

The petitioner claimed that there was a substantial change in the dumping margin for the imports of subject merchandise by producers or exporters from China, South Korea and Vietnam, since the imposition of the anti-dumping duties on the imports of cold rolled coils of alloy and non-alloy steel on May 24, 2016. ― Bernama
