A review of the relevant safeguards began in January 2023

The United States is maintaining its current anti-dumping and countervailing duties on cold-drawn mechanical pipes made of carbon and alloy steel from six countries. This is stated in a message on the ITC website.

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) has determined that the lifting of the current measures on these products from China, Germany, India, Italy, South Korea and Switzerland is likely to result in continued or recurring material injury to the U.S. industry within a reasonably foreseeable time.

As the Commission’s notice reported, the review of the respective safeguard measures against these products began in January last year. The duties were imposed in 2018, with the weighted average dumping margin for different countries and producers ranging from 3.11 to 209.06%.

At the end of last year, the US Department of Commerce (DOC) announced the final results of the anti-dumping investigation into the Ukrainian company Interpipe’s oil-compound tubular goods (OCTG). The agency concluded that Interpipe had been supplying products to U.S. consumers at lower prices than market prices during the investigation period. The weighted average dumping margin for Interpipe’s OCTG pipes was determined to be 4.89% of the cost.

As GMK Center reported earlier, the US DOC announced the preliminary results of the administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) on rebar from Turkiye. The investigation covered imports for 2021. It was preliminarily determined that the net rates of countervailing duties for Turkish suppliers Kaptan Demir Celik and Colakoglu Metalurji are 5.54% and 0.03%, respectively.
