WASHINGTON, Sept 12 (Reuters) - The U.S. International Trade Commission handed another victory to American steelmakers on Monday, affirming most of the recent anti-dumping and anti-subsidy duties on hot-rolled flat steel imports from Australia, Brazil, Britain, Japan, the Netherlands, South Korea and Turkey.

The commission rejected anti-subsidy duties against hot-rolled steel from Turkey, but affirmed anti-dumping duties against Turkish-made hot-rolled steel. The vote locks in for five years import taxes of up to 34.3 percent on the affected products.
