Anti-circumvention

On 21 April 2016, the Eurasian Economic Commission initiated an anti-circumvention investigation on imports of cold-worked seamless pipes and tubes of stainless steel from Malaysia. This investigation follows suspicion that the definitive antidumping duty imposed on imports of the same products from China might be circumvented. The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS code subheading: 7304.41.

On 15 December 2017, the Eurasian Economic Commission issued Decision No. 169 extending the definitive duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China to imports of the same good from Malaysia following the conclusion of the above anti-circumvention investigation. The rate of duty is 19.4%. The duty enters into force on 14 January 2018. 

On 19 January 2018, the Eurasian Economic Commission initiated a sunset review of the antidumping duty imposed on cold-worked seamless pipes and tubes of stainless steel from China, see related intervention. This follows the request lodged by OOO TMK-INOX, PJSC (Chelyabinsk Tube Rolling Plant) and PJSC (Pervouralsky Novotrubny Plant). Since the anti-dumping duty imposed on imports of the subject good from China was extended to imports of the same good from Malaysia following an anti-circumvention investigation, the sunset review and its conclusion will hold for this country as well.
