Anti-dumping

On October 23, 2019 a company (Bonney Forge Corporation) and a union (the United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International Union) filed petitions seeking the imposition of imposition of antidumping and countervailing duties on imports of forged steel fittings from India and the imposition of antidumping duties on imports from Korea. Subject carbon and alloy forged steel fittings are normally entered under HTSUS 7307.92.3010, 7307.92.3030, 7307.92.9000, 7307.93.3010, 7307.93.3040, 7307.93.6000, 7307.93.9010, 7307.93.9040, 7307.93.9060, 7307.99.1000, 7307.99.3000, 7307.99.5045, and 7307.99.5060. They also may be entered under HTSUS 7326.19.0010.

On December 6, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC) determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is threatened with material injury by reason of imports of forged steel fittings from India and Korea that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value and subsidized by the government of India. As a result of the determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue with its antidumping and countervailing duty investigations concerning imports of these products.

On May 21, 2020 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced affirmative preliminary determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) investigations of imports of forged steel fittings from India and Korea. Commerce preliminarily determined that exporters from India and Korea have dumped forged steel fittings in the United States at margins ranging from zero percent to 293.40 percent, and 27.19 percent to 198.38 percent, respectively. As a result of the decisions, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits from importers of forged steel fittings from India and Korea based on the preliminary rates noted above.
