LDW Pipe Determination from Commerce

Written by Sandy Williams

The Department of Commerce announced an affirmative final determination on Feb. 21 in the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations of imports of large diameter welded pipe from Korea and Turkey and the antidumping investigations on LDW pipe imports from Canada and Greece.

The merchandise covered by the Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey investigations is welded carbon and alloy steel pipe (including stainless steel pipe), more than 406.4 mm (16 inches) in nominal outside diameter (large diameter welded pipe), regardless of wall thickness, length, surface finish, grade, end finish or stenciling.

The petitioners are American Cast Iron Pipe Co. (Birmingham, AL), Berg Steel Pipe Corp. (Panama City, FL), Berg Spiral Pipe Corp. (Mobile, AL), Dura-Bond Industries (Steelton, PA), Skyline Steel (Parsippany, NJ), and Stupp Corp. (Baton Rouge, LA).

The ITC is scheduled to make its final determinations on or about April 5. If the ITC makes affirmative final determinations that the subject imports materially injure or threaten material injury to the domestic industry, Commerce will issue AD and CVD orders. If the ITC makes negative determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated.

The rates are as follows:
