US Court of International Trade on January 4, 2021 sustained the Department of Commerce's second remand results pertaining to the first administrative review of the antidumping duty order on welded line pipe from the Republic of Korea covering the period of review of May 22, 2015 through November 30, 2016. Commerce is notifying the public that the CIT's final judgment in this case is not in harmony with Commerce's amended final results in the first administrative review of WLP from Korea. Consistent with the CIT's final judgment, Commerce is amending the weighted average dumping margins calculated for Hyundai Steel Company & Hyundai HYSCO, SeAH Steel Corporation and the 22 non selected companies. Commerce calculated revised weighted average dumping margins for Hyundai Steel and SeAH of 9.24% and 4.70% respectively. In addition, as a result of Commerce's recalculation of the weighted-average dumping margins for the mandatory respondents, Commerce revised the review-specific average rate applied to the non-selected respondents to 6.97%.
On August 10, 2018, Commerce published its Amended Final Results. As reflected in the Amended Final Results, Commerce calculated weighted-average dumping margins of 18.77% for Hyundai, 14.39% for SeAH and 16.58% for the 22 companies receiving the review specific average rate. Hyundai Steel, SeAH, NEXTEEL Co Ltd and Husteel Co Ltd appealed to the CIT.
