Originating from the US order to impose anti-dumping duties on round stainless steel wire rod of the United States against Korea, on May 18, 2021, the US Department of Commerce received a request to conduct an investigation of anti-dumping duty circumvention of Korean enterprises, through various countries to export to the United States.
In February 2022, the US Investigation Agency initiated an investigation against trade remedy circumvention on stainless steel wire rod from Vietnam. Preliminary conclusions were issued in December of the same year, according to which there was a preliminary conclusion that Vietnam did not commit acts of anti-dumping duties circumvention on the investigated rod.
The above investigation has a deadline to issue a final conclusion on April 11, 2023.

Vietnam does not conduct anti-dumping duty circumvention on round stainless steel wire rod

Accordingly, the United States maintains its assessment in the preliminary conclusion, that is, Vietnam does not conduct anti-dumping duties circumvention on round stainless steel wire rod that the United States is applying to similar rod origin from Korea.
