Anti-dumping

In a petition filed on July 2, 2013, a coalition of ten steel companies seeks the imposition of anti-dumping duties on imports on certain oil country tubular goods imported from India, Korea, the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Thailand, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam. The same petition seeks countervailing duties on imports of the same product from India and Turkey.
The Department of Commerce published on July 18, 2014 its final affirmative subsidy and dumping determinations for India at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16859.txt and enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16868.txt; its dumping determination for Korea at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16874.txt; its dumping determination for the Philippines at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16865.txt; for Saudi Arabia at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16867.txt; for Taiwan at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16861.txt; for Thailand at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16866.txt; its subsidy and dumping determinations for Turkey at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16860.txt and enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16873.txt; for Ukraine at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16875.txt; and for Vietnam at enforcement.trade.gov/frn/2014/1407frn/2014-16862.txt
On August 22, 2014 the United States International Trade Commission reached mixed decisions that will exemt two countries from the imposition of orderes. It determined on the one hand that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports from India, Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, but also found on the other hand that imports from the Philippines and Thailand do not contribute to this injury.
