Brazil’s foreign trade ministry has begun an antidumping investigation of imports of steel wire from China. The petition was requested by Brazilian steel wire producer Belgo Bekaert, a joint venture of steelmakers ArcelorMittal and NV Bekaert. The product under investigation is high strength, circular section high-carbon steel wire with either smooth or notched surfaces, typically identified under HS codes 7217.10.19 and 7217.10.90, the ministry confirmed. The ministry considered $1,070.49 per tonne to be a normal export value, compared with Chinese export prices of $623.65 per tonne. “The verified dumping margin [$446.84 per tonne] shows the evidence of dumping in exports of China’s steel wires to Brazil from January to December 2015,” the ministry said in a statement.
