Anti-dumping

In a Federal Register notice published on June 23, 2014 the U.S. Department of Commerce renewed the existing anti-dumping and countervailing duty order against imports of light-walled rectangular pipe and tube from Mexico, Turkey, China, and Korea. The original order was imposed on August 5, 2008, 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).
