Safeguard

On 28 September 2009 the Government of the Russian Federation issued a Decree # 758 "On the measures to protect Russian domestic producers of tubes, pipes made of corrosion-resistant steel" to impose safeguard duty of 28.1% of the customs value on certain tubes, pipes made of corrosion-resistant steel (HS 730411, 730640). The decision, however, excludes Belarus and other developing countries enjoying the Russia's system of trade preference (but includes China, Hong Kong, Macao, Taiwan, and Brazil). The duty will remain in place for 3 years from 2 November 2009.

On 27 January 2011, the Russian authorities amended the definitive safeguard duty on imports of the subject good. The rate of duty is 9.9% of customs value, however with a minimum threshold of USD 1,500 per 1 tonne.

On 22 June 2011, the Customs Union Commission issued Decree 706 replacing and thereby terminating the above safeguard duty, see related state act. The decree came into force on 1 January 2012. According to article 4 of the "Agreement on the application of safeguard, antidumping and countervailing measures in transitional period" of 19 November 2010 when a trade defence measure imposed in the Customs Union enters into force the corresponding national measure is terminated. As safeguard measure was extended to the Customs Union the above safeguard duty was terminated on 1 January 2012.
