The DGTR will review whether anti-dumping duty should be continued or not. These steel products coming from China were imposed anti-dumping duty in February 2017 and will expire on 16 May 2021. If this decision is not carried forward then there will be no anti-dumping duty on these steel products imported from China after 16 May 2021.
