ANNOUNCEMENT 20 Jul 2012
In July, 2012, and again in December, 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 July 20, 2012 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines. The original order was imposed on February 23, 2001, 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 December 14, 2017 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the affirmative determinations, the existing antidumping duty orders on imports of these products from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines will remain in place.
