USITC Votes Unanimously That Pipe From Three Countries Injured US Industry
On August 2, 2021, the members of the U.S. International Trade Commission voted unanimously that dumped and subsidized seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line and pressure pipe from Korea, Russia, and Ukraine caused injury to U.S. manufacturers of these products.
As a result of the Commission’s affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will issue antidumping duty orders on imports of these products from Korea, Russia, and Ukraine and countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from Korea and Russia. Remedial duties will range from 6.22 percent for Korea, 23.75 for Ukraine, and 253.10 percent for Russia.
Previously, the Commission found on April 1, 2021 that unfairly traded imports of the same products from Czechia also injured the domestic industry, leading to the imposition of duties of 51.07 percent.
Schagrin Associates filed the underlying petitions in July 2020 on behalf of Vallourec Star, LP of Houston, Texas.
