Dumping Investigation ADC 249 - Zinc Coated (Galvanised) Steel Exported from India and Vietnam

Goods Covered by the Investigation

Flat rolled iron or steel products (whether or not containing alloys) that are plated or coated with zinc. These goods are generically called galvanised steel. Galvanised steel of any width is included in this application.

The applicant provided further details as follows:

The goods include the same categories of goods as identified in Trade Measures Report Nos. 190 and 193, however, this application also includes goods that are alloyed (i.e. with minor additions, e.g. boron, chromium, etc.). The goods the subject of this application include all zinc coated product options, including all grades/models of zinc coated steel, all coating mass classes and all surface treatments.

Trade or further generic names often used to describe these goods include:

      • “GALVABOND®” steel
      • “ZINCFORM®” steel
      • “GALVASPAN®” steel
      • “ZINCHITEN®” steel
      • “ZINCANNEAL” steel
      • “ZINCSEAL” steel
      • Galv
      • GI
      • Hot Dip Zinc coated steel
      • Hot Dip Zinc/Iron alloy coated steel
      • Galvanneal

The amount of zinc coating on the steel is described as its coating mass and is nominated in grams per meter squared (g/m2) with the prefix being Z (zinc) or ZF (zinc converted to a zinc/iron alloy coating). The common coating masses used for zinc coating are: Z350, Z275, Z200/Z180, Z100, and for zinc/iron alloy coatings ZF100, ZF80 and ZF30 or equivalents based on international standards and naming conventions.

Surface treatments can include but not be limited to: passivated or not passivated (often referred to as chromated or unchromated), oiled or not oiled, skin passed or not skin passed, phosphated or not phosphated (for zinc iron alloy coated steel only).

Excluded from the definition of the goods the subject of this application is painted galvanised steel, pre-painted galvanised steel, electro-galvanised steel, corrugated galvanised steel or aluminium zinc alloy coated or plated steel.
