Law360 Quotes Special Counsel Grace Kim on Anti-Dumping Duties on Korean Wire Rod

In this case, the Commerce Department inadvertently failed to convert an import duty cost amount that was denominated in Korean won to U.S. dollars when it granted Posco a duty drawback adjustment to U.S. price, which significantly understated Posco’s preliminary dumping margin,” Grace noted. Petitioners are very pleased that the department agreed with our ministerial error allegation and revised the dumping margin for Posco to more correctly reflect the company’s level of dumping in the U.S. market.”
