Does the new China tariffs on steel have any impact on molds brought in from china?

Dale, I just reached out to Alan Rothenbuecher, attorney for Benesch, to see if somebody on his staff might have an answer to this.

Hello Dale:  If you are referring to the subsidy rate as the punitive tariff, I don’t think molds made from such steel will be covered if they don’t meet the written physical description because it is not stainless steel sheet and strip, whether in coils or straight lengths; and is not trimmed, cut, punched, or slit and still maintains the specific dimensions of sheet and strip.

Hope the above information is helpful.
