Anti-dumping

On July 21, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission initiated an anti-dumping investigation on imports of hollow structural sections (certain electric resistance welded pipe and tube made of steel, comprising circular and non-circular hollow sections in galvanised and non-galvanised finishes, whether or not including alloys) from Thailand (Anti-dumping Notice No. 2014/59).
The products subject to investigation are classified under the following HS codes: 7306.3000, 7306.5000, 7306.6100 and 7306.6900.
The complaint was lodged on June 10, 2014 by Austube Mills Pty Ltd.
 
On November 10, 2014, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2014/125).
 
On February 6, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission extended again the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/15, 06.02.2015).
 
On March 10, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission further extended the time granted to issue the Statement of Essential Facts (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/32, 10.03.2015).
 
On March 16, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a provisional anti-dumping duty on imports of hollow structural sections originating in Thailand (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/36). The rate of the duty ranges from 12.4% to 30.6%, depending on the exporting company.
 
On May 28th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission issued the Statement of Essential Facts (SEF Report No. 254).
On the same day, it also decided to amend the provisional anti-dumping duty imposed on March 16th, 2015 (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/66). The rate of the modified duty ranges from 5.7% to 29.7%, depending on the exporting company. It entered into force on June 1st, 2015.
 
On August 20th, 2015, the Australian Anti-Dumping Commission decided to impose a definitive anti-dumping duty on imports of hollow structural sections originating in Thailand (Anti-Dumping Notice No. 2015/102, 20.08.2015). The rate of the duty is 29.7%, at the exception of the following companies whose exports are subject to a preferential rate: Sahathai Steel Pipe Public Company Limited (5.7%), Pacific Pipe Public Company Limited (15.1%) and Samchai Steel Industries Public Company Limited (19.8%).

On 12 August 2016, the Australian authorities extended the duty to include HS code subheading 7306.90.00 on imports of the subject good. 

On 27 June 2018, the Australian authorities amended the definitive duty imposed in August 2015 following the conclusion of a review (Notice No. 2018/88). The rate of duty is between 0.7% and 8.7% depending on the company. The rate of duty on imports from the Thai companies Sahathai Steel Pipe Public Company Limited and Atlantic Pipe Company Limited is calculated on the basis of the "floor price". The duty enters into force on 28 June 2018.
