U.S. Commerce delays final determinations

According to a Commerce Department release, the final determinations were postponed because of “the complexity of these investigations and ongoing discussions between the Governments of the United States and Canada focusing on a durable solution to this long-standing trade dispute….” Under U.S. law, Commerce may postpone an AD final determination for a total of 135 days after the publication of the AD preliminary determination. Further, because the CVD investigation has been aligned with the AD investigation, that final determination will also be announced no later than November 14, 2017.
