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.
The Department of Commerce published its preliminary affirmative CVD determination on April 8, 2016 for Pakistan.
On June 1, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative preliminary determinations in the anti-dumping duty investigations of imports from Oman, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam.
On October 24, 2016, the Department of Commerce announced its affirmative final determinations in the anti-dumping duty investigations of imports of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Oman, Pakistan, the United Arab Emirates, and Vietnam, and countervailing duty investigation of imports of circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Pakistan.
The USITC reached a final affirmative injury determination on November 18, 2016 that an industry in the United States is materially injured by imports from Oman, Pakistan, and the United Arab Emirates, but that imports from Vietnam and Pakistan are negligible. As a result of the affirmative determinations, the Department of Commerce will issue anti-dumping duty orders on imports of these products from Oman, Pakistan, and the United Arab Emirates, but no duties will be imposed on imports of these products from Vietnam and Pakistan.
