ANNOUNCEMENT 29 Oct 2013
In 2013 and 2019 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 29, 2013 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping order against imports of welded large diameter line pipe from Japan. The original order was imposed on December 6, 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 September 13, 2019 the U.S. International Trade Commission determined that revoking the existing antidumping duty order on imports of certain welded large diameter line pipe from Japan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the determination, the existing antidumping duty order on imports of this product from Japan will remain in place.
