Pakistan has imposed provisional antidumping duties on cold-rolled coils, sheets, strips from Canada and Russia for four months, the National Tariff Commission said late last week.

A "provisional antidumping duty at the rate of 13.94% ad valorem of the C and F price" has been imposed on the steel products, the commission said, after it "determined that the domestic industry suffered material injury on account of significant increase in volume of dumped imports."

The investigation was a result of an application filed by Aisha Steel Mills and International Steels, both based in Karachi.

The products fall under Pakistan Customs Tariff Numbers: 72091510, 72091590, 72091610, 72091690, 72091710, 72091790, 72091810, 72091890, 72091891, 72091899, 72092510, 72092590, 72092610, 72092690, 72092710, 72092790, 72092810, 72092890 and 72112920.

The commission will make its final determination about 180 days after its preliminary findings were published, which should be about March 20, 2020.
