UPI takes next step in trade case evaluation

LOS ANGELES — USS-Posco Industries Inc. (UPI) will move on to the next step in its evaluation of a possible anti-dumping case against Chinese cold-rolled sheet, a source close to the company said.

The Pittsburg, Calif.-based flat-rolled producer has decided to proceed with a "preliminary case assessment" for a possible complaint on Chinese cold-rolled sheet, which is considered the major import factor for this product in the far West. This would include a determination of the actual procedure for filing a claim and the potential duties likely to be sought, the source said.

UPI last month confirmed it was discussing its options with attorneys for filing an anti-dumping petition on Chinese cold-rolled sheet based on regional considerations, which historically has been viewed as more difficult than a complaint based on alleged market damage in the overall U.S. market ( Dec. 18).

UPI, a joint venture of U.S. Steel Corp. and South Korean steelmaker Posco Ltd., in addition to cold-rolled sheet produces hot-rolled pickled, and oiled and galvanized sheet, as well as tin mill products.
