Final Ruling in the Tin Mill Steel Duties

In 2024 Feb., The International Trade Commission’s (ITC) unanimous decision not to impose duties on imported tin mill!


And The Consumer Brands Association issued the following statement:

“The 0 – 4 vote against the tariffs, combined with the Department of Commerce’s final duty determination in January, is a complete repudiation of a petition brought by steelmaker Cleveland-Cliffs. If the tariffs had been imposed at the levels requested by Cleveland-Cliffs, nearly 40,000 manufacturing jobs would have been put at risk, with consumer prices for canned goods soaring up to 30 percent.

“Today’s result confirms what we’ve known all along – there was no merit to Cleveland-Cliffs’ claims. The ITC not only voted today to protect thousands of American manufacturing jobs, but to preserve the integrity of our country’s trade remedy process.

“The unanimous decision means that no antidumping or countervailing duty orders will be applied on any countries in the case. The ITC voted negative for Canada, China and Germany, and the investigation against South Korea was terminated because the volume of subject imports was negligible. Commerce previously issued negative duty levels for Taiwan, Turkey, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

“We appreciate the Biden administration’s rigorous analysis of the facts in this case. Tin mill steel is critical to ensuring the safety and quality of canned products millions of Americans rely on every day.

On February 8, 2023, the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) announced the initiation of antidumping duty (AD) investigations of tin mill products from Canada, the People’s Republic of China (China), Germany, the Republic of Korea (Korea), the Netherlands, Taiwan, the Republic of Turkey (Turkey), and the United Kingdom, and a countervailing duty (CVD) investigation of tin mill products from China.

The Consumer Brands Association is great! The Consumer Brands Association champions the industry whose products Americans depend on every day, representing nearly 2,000 iconic brands.
