The head of the International Trade Administration Commission of South Africa (Itac) reports that, following the completion of public consultations on the possible imposition of safeguard duties for hot-rolled coil (HRC) steel, the commission intends delivering its recommendation to Trade and Industry Minister Dr Rob Davies in November. Chief commissioner Siyabulela Tsengiwe tells Engineering News Online that Itac is in the final stages of its HRC process – one that has included an investigation of HRC imports and their effect on domestic steel producers, as well as hearings to canvass the views of both upstream and downstream industry participants.
