Sayenko Kharenko, working with Appleton Luff, has successfully represented PJSC Stalkanat in the antidumping administrative review regarding prestressed concrete steel strand, conducted by the US Department of Commerce, resulting in a 0% (no-dumping) rate being granted.
According to the firm, the Federation of Employers of Ukraine had supported the position of PJSC Stalkanat during the review, while the DOC review specifically recognized the unique challenges of exporting from Ukraine during the Russian invasion and Stalkanat’s fair pricing. A 19,03% rate had been in effect following the results of the initial investigation.
"This case is unique for Ukraine because this is the first case in history when the review/investigation is terminated with a 0% dumping margin rate," Sayenko Kharenko reported. For context, "the US now applies eight anti-dumping duties to imports of different products from Ukraine. The rates of duties are very high, from 23% to 237,9%. Some anti-dumping duties are very old and have been applied since 1994."
The "successful case of Stalkanat confirms the readiness to review the anti-dumping measures for the Ukrainian producers. Therefore, now is a very good moment to ask for a review," the firm announced.
Back in 2020, Sayenko Kharenko had also successfully represented the interests of the PJSC Manufacturing Association Stalkanat-Silur in a sunset review of antidumping measures against the import of wire ropes originating from China into Ukraine (as reported by CEE Legal Matters on June 17, 2020).
The Sayenko Kharenko team included Partner Anzhela Makhinova and Associate Oleksandra Sandul.
