SÃO PAULO Brazil has extended its deadline for an anti-dumping probe into imports of non-grain-oriented electrical steels from China, Taiwan and South Korea.
The investigation has been pushed back by up to six months from April 19, 2013, foreign trade secretariat Secex, part of the Ministry of Development, Industry and Foreign Trade, said Feb. 6 in Brazils official gazette.
Secex didnt give a reason for the extension.
The case was opened in April 2012 after a request from Aperam Inox América do Sul SA, the sole domestic maker of the products.
