The US Department of Commerce issued final results on anti-dumping duty order on certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico on Monday, April 13, 2015.
The DOC determined a weighted-average margin of 7.33 percent for steel pipe products from Productos Laminados for the period November 1, 2012 through October 31, 2013.
In December of 2014, the DOC dropped seven Mexican companies from the original antidumping review. An additional company, Prolamsa, was determined to be a wholly-owned subsidiary of Productos Laminados and an importer, not producer, of welded pipe.
The products covered by the order are circular welded non-alloy steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, not more than 16 inches in outside diameter, regardless of wall thickness, surface finish, or end finish.
