U.S. Steel ITC Complaint Targets Chinese Imports

United States Steel Corp., Pittsburgh, has filed a Section 337 complaint with the U.S. International Trade Commission alleging that China’s largest steel producers and distributors have illegally conspired to fix prices, steal trade secrets and circumvent trade duties by falsely labeling shipments. A possible ITC remedy is the exclusion of the unfairly traded products from the U.S. market.

"We have said that we will use every tool available to fight for fair trade," said President and CEO Mario Longhi. "With this filing, we continue the work we have pursued through countervailing and antidumping cases and pushing for increased enforcement of existing laws."
 
U.S. Steel seeks Section 337 relief, which includes actions to prevent unfair methods of competition and unfair importation of products into the U.S., as well as safeguards for intellectual property rights such as patents and copyrights. The ITC has up to 30 days to evaluate the petition for relief and decide whether to initiate the case.
