Trade agency the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) has, following an investigation into alleged dumping of steel products from the People’s Republic of China, determined that dumping of products originating in or imported from China is taking place.

Itac also determined that the industry of the regional bloc Southern African Customs Union (Sacu) is experiencing material injury and that there is a causal link between the alleged dumped imports and the material injury experienced by the Sacu industry.

The commission made a final determination to recommend to South Africa's Trade, Industry and Competition Minister Ebrahim Patel that definitive anti-dumping duties be imposed against imports of flat-rolled products of iron or non-alloy steel, of a width of 600 mm or more, plated or coated with zinc, and of a thickness of less than 0.45 mm originating in or imported from China.

The South African Coil Coaters Association, which is a Sacu industry body, lodged an application. Steelmaker ArcelorMittal South Africa is also the major producer of the products investigated and provided material injury information during the investigation.
