The United States International Trade Commission has determined that US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line, and pressure pipe from Czechia that the US Department of Commerce has determined are sold in the United States at less than fair value. As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determination, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order on imports of this product from Czechia.
Product Description: Seamless carbon and alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipes and redraw hollows, less than or equal to 16 inches (406.4 mm) in nominal outside diameter, regardless of wall-thickness, manufacturing process (e.g., hot finished or cold-drawn), end finish (e.g., plain end, beveled end, upset end, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or surface finish (e.g., bare, lacquered or coated). Redraw hollows are any unfinished carbon or alloy steel (other than stainless steel) pipe or "hollow profiles" suitable for cold finishing operations, such as cold drawing, to meet American Society for Testing and Materials or American Petroleum Institute specifications, or comparable specifications.
