Link:(https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2019-03-04/pdf/2019-03818.pdf; https://www.govinfo.gov/content/pkg/FR-2019-03-04/pdf/2019-03819.pdf)

Summary: The scope of these investigations covers carbon and alloy fabricated structural steel. Subject merchandise is made from steel in which (i) iron predominates by weight over each of the other contained elements and (ii) the carbon content is two percent or less by weight. Fabricated structural steel products are fabricated for erection or assembly into structures, including buildings (commercial, office, institutional and multi-family residential), industrial and utility projects, parking decks, arenas and convention centres, medical facilities, and ports, transportation and infrastructure facilities.

Subject merchandise is manufactured from carbon and alloy (including stainless) steel products such as angles, columns, beams, girders, plates, flange shapes (including manufactured structural shapes utilising welded plates as a substitute for rolled wide flange sections), channels, hollow structural section shapes, base plates and plate-work components. Fabrication includes cutting, drilling, welding, joining, bolting, bending, punching, pressure fitting, moulding, grooving, adhesion, bevelling and riveting, and may include items such as fasteners, nuts, bolts, rivets, screws, hinges or joints.

The inclusion, attachment, joining or assembly of non-steel components with fabricated structural steel does not remove the fabricated structural steel from the scope. Fabricated structural steel is covered by the scope regardless of whether it is painted, varnished or coated with plastics or other metallic or non-metallic substances and regardless of whether it is assembled or partially assembled, such as into modules, modularised construction units or sub-assemblies of fabricated structural steel. Subject merchandise includes fabricated structural steel that has been assembled or further processed in mainland China or a third market, including painting, varnishing, trimming, cutting, drilling, welding, joining, bolting, punching, bending, bevelling, riveting, galvanising, coating and/or slitting, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigations if performed in mainland China.

Specifically excluded from the scope are (i) fabricated steel concrete reinforcing bar if it is a unitary piece of fabricated rebar, not joined, welded or otherwise connected with any other steel product or part, or if it is joined, welded or otherwise connected only to other rebar; (ii) fabricated structural steel for bridges and bridge sections that meets American Association of State and Highway and Transportation Officials bridge construction requirements or any state or local derivatives of the AASHTO requirements; (iii) pre-engineered metal building systems, which are defined as complete metal buildings that integrate steel framing, roofing and walls to form one, pre-engineered building system, that meet Metal Building Manufacturers Association guide specifications (pre-engineered metal building systems are typically limited in height to no more than 60 feet or two stories); (iv) steel roof and floor decking systems that meet Steel Deck Institute standards; and (v) open web steel bar joists and joist girders that meet Steel Joist Institute specifications.

The USITC will issue its preliminary injury determination by 21 March (a vote has been scheduled for 20 March).
