US DOC Finalizes AD Margin on Seamless Pipes from Czech Republic
The US Department of Commerce has announced the final affirmative determinations in its antidumping duty investigation of seamless carbon and alloy standard, line, and pipe from the Czech Republic. During the review period from July 1, 2019 to June 30, 2020, producers from the Czech Republic were found to have made sales of seamless carbon and alloy standard, line, and pipe at less than normal value. Accordingly, the DOC has estimated weighted average dumping margins of 51.70% for Liberty Ostrava and Moravia Steel, 51.07% for all others. The final antidumping duties for the country are applicable from March 5.
The products covered by this investigation are seamless pipe and redraw hollows from the Czech Republic, less than or equal to 16 inches in nominal outside diameter, regardless of wall-thickness, manufacturing process, end finish, or surface finish.
Subject seamless standard, line, and pressure pipe are normally entered under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States subheadings 7304.19.1020, 7304.19.1030, 7304.19.1045, 7304.19.1060, 7304.19.5020, 7304.19.5050, 7304.31.6050, 7304.39.0016, 7304.39.0020, 7304.39.0024, 7304.39.0028, 7304.39.0032, 7304.39.0036, 7304.39.0040, 7304.39.0044, 7304.39.0048, 7304.39.0052, 7304.39.0056, 7304.39.0062, 7304.39.0068, 7304.39.0072, 7304.51.5005, 7304.51.5060, 7304.59.6000, 7304.59.8010, 7304.59.8015, 7304.59.8020, 7304.59.8025, 7304.59.8030, 7304.59.8035, 7304.59.8040, 7304.59.8045, 7304.59.8050, 7304.59.8055, Start Printed Page 129117304.59.8060, 7304.59.8065, and 7304.59.8070.
