US ITC votes to keep AD & CVD on Seamless Pipes from China
The US International Trade Commission has determined that revoking the existing antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of certain seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line, and pressure pipe from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result of the ITC’s affirmative determinations, the existing orders on imports of this product from China will remain in place.
This action came under the five-year (sunset) review process required by the Uruguay Round Agreements Act. The five-year (sunset) reviews concerning Certain Seamless Carbon and Alloy Steel Standard, Line, and Pressure Pipe from China were instituted on February 1, 2021. On May 7, 2021, the Commission voted to conduct expedited reviews. Commissioners David S. Johanson, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, Jason E. Kearns, Randolph J. Stayin, and Amy A. Karpel concluded that the domestic group response was adequate and the respondent group responses were inadequate and voted for expedited reviews.
