The article states that various trade groups representing foreign producers and domestic consumers of metals and other products are calling on the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) to cease the practice of "zeroing" in antidumping determinations. This followed the World Trade Organization's (WTO's) recent Appellate Body finding that the practice is inconsistent with WTO rules. In response to the WTO's finding, DOC officials have announced plans to modify the way they calculate antidumping margins. American Institute for International Steel is urging the DOG to expand its proposal on zeroing in antidumping investigations.
