Anti-dumping

On October 28, 2015 a group of U.S. firms (Bull Moose Tube Company, EXLTUBE, Wheatland Tube Company, a division of JMC Steel Group, and Western Tube and Conduit) filed petitions seeking the imposition of countervailing and anti-dumping duties on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe imported from Oman, Pakistan, Philippines, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam. The first step in the investigation is the U.S. International Trade Commission's preliminary injury determination. The commission reached an affirmative determination on December 11, 2015, with respect to determined Oman, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam, but also determined that imports of these products from the Philippines are negligible.
