ANNOUNCEMENT 11 Oct 2011
In October 2011 and again in September 2017 the United States renewed an existing anti-dumping order.
NUMBER OF INTERVENTIONS
U.S. International Trade Commission at http://www.usitc.gov/trade_remedy/.
In a Federal Register notice published on October 11, 2011 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of small diameter seamless pipe from Japan and Romania. The original order was imposed on August 10, 2000, with the renewed order thus exceeding the five-year 'sunset' standard that generally applies to trade-remedy measures under WTO agreements (i.e., article 21.3 of the Agreement on Subsidies and Countervailing Measures and article 11.3 of the Anti-dumping Agreement).
On September 19, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of carbon and alloy seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe from Japan and Romania would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of this determination, the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of these products from Japan and Romania will remain in place.
