Anti-dumping

Following a final affirmative injury determination by the U.S. International Trade Commission on May 30, 2012, the United States will impose anti-dumping duties (ADs) and countervailing duties (CVDs) on imports of high-pressure steel cylinders from China. The United States imported $23.9 million worth of this product from China in 2010. The filing of this petition triggers investigations by the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC), which must determine if these imports cause or threaten to cause material injury to the U.S. industry, and by the International Trade Administration (ITA) of the U.S. Department of Commerce, which must determine whether and to what extent the subject imports are dumped and/or subsidized. The first step was the USITC's preliminary determination, which on June 24, 2011 reached an affirmative injury determination.
In a CVD preliminary determination reached on October 12, 2011 the ITA found that respondent Beijing Tianhai Industry Co., Ltd. received a preliminary net subsidy rate of 22.34 percent ad valorem. All other Chinese producers/exporters received a preliminary net subsidy rate of 22.34 percent ad valorem. As a result of this preliminary determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a cash deposit or bond based on these preliminary rates.
The ITA published its final CVD determination on May 7, 2012 (see http://ia.ita.doc.gov/frn/2012/1205frn/2012-10954.txt), with a rate of 15.81%. The last step in this investigation is the USITC's final injury determination, which is due June 11, 2012.
