WASHINGTON (Kyodo) The U.S. International Trade Commission voted Thursday to revoke antidumping duties imposed five years ago on imports of structural steel beams from Japan and South Korea.

In a 5-1 vote after its five-year “sunset” review process, the commission “determined that revoking the existing countervailing duty and antidumping duty orders . . . would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonable foreseeable time,” the ITC said in a statement.
