Section 232 Investigation on the Effect of Imports of

Laminations for Stacked Cores for Incorporation into Transformers,

Stacked Cores for Incorporation into Transformers,

Wound Cores for Incorporation into Transformers,

Electrical transformers, and Transformer Regulators on the National Security

 

 

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation, is conducting a survey and assessment of the U.S. electrical steel and transformer products industry. The resulting data will be used to support an ongoing electrical steel and transformer products import investigation under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, as amended. The investigation was initiated by the U.S. Department of Commerce.

The principal goal of this survey is to assist BIS in determining whether Transformer Products are being imported into the United States in such quantities or under such circumstances as to threaten to impair the national security. The survey will query information concerning facilities, production and inventory, supplier and customer relationships, financials, national defense and critical infrastructure support, and competition and trade. The resulting data will provide BIS with information that is otherwise not available but needed to conduct its investigation.

Your organization has been identified as part of the electrical steel sector or as a select downstream consumer with one or more facilities in the United States. Your participation in this survey is vital to ensure a comprehensive dataset for the assessment. BIS has worked in successful partnership with other U.S. industry sectors and we anticipate similar cooperation from your organization on this effort.

Section 232 Investigation on the

Effect of Imports of Titanium Sponge on the National Security

BIS

 

The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), Office of Technology Evaluation (OTE), is conducting a survey of the U.S. titanium sponge industry. The resulting data will be used to support an ongoing titanium sponge import investigation under Section 232 of the Trade Expansion Act of 1962, as amended. The investigation was initiated by the U.S. Department of Commerce, based on a petition filed by a U.S. titanium sponge company.

The principal goal of this survey is to assist BIS in determining whether titanium sponge is being imported into the United States in such quantities or under such circumstances as to threaten to impair the national security. The survey will also assist in determining the overall health and competitiveness of the titanium sponge industry in the United States. Information collected will include organization profile, mergers & acquisitions, facility information, production & inventory, financial information, capital expenditures, research & development, imports & exports, customers, suppliers & contracts, employment, competition, and demand trends. The resulting data will provide BIS detailed titanium sponge industry information that is otherwise not available and is needed to effectively conduct its investigation.

Your organization has been identified as part of the titanium sponge sector or as a select downstream consumer with one or more facilities in the United States. Your participation in this survey is vital to ensure a comprehensive dataset for the assessment. BIS has worked in successful partnership with other U.S. industry sectors and we anticipate similar cooperation from your organization on this effort.
