Notice of Change of the Period of Suspension of the Imposition of Anti-Dumping Duty on Aluminium-Zinc Coated Steel From the Republic of Korea

Pursuant to section 13B(4)(b) of the Trade (Anti-dumping and Countervailing Duties) Act 1988 (“Act”), I hereby give notice that I have changed the period of suspension of the imposition of anti-dumping duty, as notified in the Notice of Determinations in Step 2 Dumping Investigation into Aluminium-Zinc Coated Steel from Korea dated 28 March 2022 and published in the New Zealand Gazette, 1 April 2022, Notice No. 2022-ln1228.

The change in the period of suspension of the imposition of the anti-dumping duty is to extend the suspension until 31 December 2022. I consider that users of the subject goods which are described in Schedule 1, and which are subject to an anti-dumping duty at the rates set out in Schedule 2, continue to be significantly impacted by an emergency, namely the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The subject goods that this notice applies to are described as:

  • Goods with coatings which include magnesium alloyed with aluminium and zinc.
  • Goods for which there is no coating at all.

The goods are currently classified under tariff headings 7210.61, which covers flat-rolled products of non-alloy steel plated or coated with aluminium-zinc alloys, of width of 600mm or more; 7212.50 which covers flat-rolled products of non-alloy steel, otherwise plated or coated, not exceeding 600mm in width; and 7225.99 and 7226.99 which cover flat-rolled products of other alloy steel, and potentially of coatings of aluminium-zinc alloys. These classifications are provided for convenience and Customs purposes only, the written description being dispositive.
