On 26 June 2012, the European Union decided to extend the anti-dumping duties in force against imports of seamless pipes and tubes, of iron or steel, originating in Russia and Ukraine. The Union decided instead to repeal the measures in force on Croatia. The subject goods fall under the HS codes 7304.1100; 7304.1910; 7304.1930; 7304.2200; 7304.2300; 7304.2400; 7304.2910; 7304.2930; 7304.3180; 7304.3958; 7304.3992; 7304.3993; 7304.5189; 7304.5992 and 7304.5993.
The European Commission initiated the anti-dumping review on imports on 29 March 2011. The anti-dumping duty was imposed by the Council Regulation No 2320/97, suspended for a period after 2004 and re-introduced after an interim review by the Regulation No 954/2006.
On 21 December 2012, the European Council decided to amend the decision 585/2012 (mentioned above) and to impose definitive anti-dumping duties on certain imports of seamless steel pipes on a specific company. The anti-dumping duty applicable to imports of the product concerned from the TMK Group is now 28.7%. (1269/2012)
On 4 July 2017, the European Commission initiated a sunset review on imports of the subject good from Ukraine and Russia. This follows the request lodged on 30 March 2017 by the Defence Committee of the Seamless Steel Tubes Industry of the European Union.
On 3 October 2018, the European Commission extended the definitive duty imposed on imports of seamless pipes and tubes from Ukraine and Russia following the conclusion of the sunset review. The rate of duty on imports from Russia is between 24.1% and 35.8% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from Ukraine is between 12.3% and 25.7% of the net free-at-Union-frontier price before duty depending on the company. The regulation extending the definitive duty was published on 2 October 2018.
