The specifications for the proposed assessment are as follows:

Gauge: 4 inches x 4 inches x 3/16 inch, 42-foot, hot-rolled bare
Location: Delivered duty paid (ddp) US port of entry
Unit: USD per short ton
Quantity: Minimum 100 tons

The 30-day consultation period for this proposal begins on Monday June 3 and will end on Wednesday July 3, with changes set to take place - subject to market feedback - beginning Tuesday July 9.
