Anti-dumping

On January 17, 2018 the American Line Pipe Producers Association filed petitions seeking the imposition of antidumping duties against certain large diameter welded pipe imported from Canada, Greece, India, China, Korea, and Turkey. On March 5, 2018 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of these imports. 

On August 21, 2018 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced the affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty investigations:
•Canada – 24.38%
•China – 132.63%
•Greece – 22.51%
•India – 50.55%
•Korea – 14.97 to 22.21%
•Turkey – 3.45 to 5.29%

As a result of these decisions, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of large diameter welded pipe from Canada, China, Greece, India, Korea, and Turkey based on these preliminary rates. With respect to the India and Turkey investigations, Commerce will adjust the cash deposit rates by the amount of export subsidies found in the companion countervailing duty investigations.
