Eurasian Economic Commission has decided to extend for 5 years the anti-dumping duty on casing, tubing and oil pipelines imports into the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union from Ukraine. The Commission reached a conclusion that the lifting of anti-dumping duty entails a threat of dumping imports, which could harm the industry. The decision was made as a result of a repeated anti-dumping investigation launched by the Internal Market Protection Department on February 8, 2021 due to the expiration of the applicable measure. The investigation was conducted on the basis of requests from Chelyabinsk Pipe Rolling Plant, Pervouralsk Novotrubny Plant, Volzhsky Pipe Plant, Seversky Pipe Plant, Sinarsky Pipe Plant, Taganrogsky Metallurgical Plant, TMK-KPV JSC, Vyksa Metallurgical Plant and TMK-Kaztrubprom LLP.In June 2011, the EEC imposed the following anti-dumping duties on imports of steel pipes and tubes from Ukraine:18.9% for casing pipes;19.9% for tubing pipes;19.4–37.7% for oil line pipes, depending on producer.By its Decision No 48 dated 2 June 2016, the EEC has further extended those safeguards until 1 June 2021. In April 2021, the EEC extended the anti-dumping duties for the period of the investigation.
