Fabricated structural steel is a key material used in constructing the superstructure of major real estate and infrastructure projects, including high-rise developments, bridges, parking decks and ports.

The pending FSS investigations could have a significant impact on jobs and growth in U.S. real estate. Canada and Mexico, in particular, play important roles in ensuring an adequate supply of FSS for ongoing real estate development projects, and they bring sophisticated design and engineering to the projects they bid on. A decision that leads to higher construction costs will have a negative effect on new development and construction activity in the United States.

The Roundtable respectfully requested that Commerce resist calls from certain parties in the case to change the rules for how subsidies or dumping are calculated.
