The probe is focused on steel pipes, which are completed in Vietnam from hot-rolled steel produced in China, Korea, India or Taiwan.On 17 May 2022, domestic interested parties filed circumvention inquiry requests alleging that circular welded pipe & tube completed in Vietnam using HRS manufactured in China, India, Korea, or Taiwan are circumventing the orders on pipe products from those countries and accordingly, should be included within the scope of the orders.On 2 June 2022, SeAH Steel VINA filed opposition comments in response to the domestic interested parties request regarding the Circular Welded Pipes & Tubes allegations but the comments did not address the Light Walled Rectangular Pipes & Tube and Light Walled Welded Rectangular Carbon Steel Tubing allegations. On 13 June 2022, US DOC extended the deadline to initiate these circumvention inquiries by 15 days. On 28 June 2022, the domestic interested parties filed their responses to our supplemental questionnaires. On 1 July 2022, US DOC issued the supplemental questionnaires because it found that the requests to conduct circumvention inquiries were insufficient for purposes of initiation. Additionally, US DOC clarified that it considers the initial requests and supplementary information together to constitute the applications for circumvention inquires, and that based on the date that the domestic parties filed the supplemental information, US DOC considers the inquiry requests to have been filed on 28 June 2022.
