US Steel Files Complaint Against Chinese Producers

United States Steel Corporation has filed a complaint with the US International Trade Commission (ITC) to initiate an investigation against the largest Chinese steel producers and their distributors.

The complaint alleges illegal unfair methods of competition and seeks the exclusion of all unfairly traded Chinese steel products from the US market.

The complaint alleges three causes of action: the illegal conspiracy to fix prices, the theft of trade secrets and the circumvention of trade duties by false labeling.

"We have said that we will use every tool available to fight for fair trade," said president and chief executive officer Mario Longhi.  "With today's filing, we continue the work we have pursued through countervailing and antidumping cases and pushing for increased enforcement of existing laws."

The International Trade Commission has up to 30 days to evaluate the petition for relief and decide whether to initiate the case.  If the matter proceeds, an administrative law judge is then assigned.  During the evidentiary discovery process, the parties may seek the issuance of nationwide subpoenas and orders for the production of relevant documents.
