AD/CV Case Update: Steel Pipe, Aircraft, Steel Plate
Steel Pipe. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on welded ASTM A-312 stainless steel pipe from Korea for the period Dec. 1, 2014, through Nov. 30, 2015, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 1.91 percent for SeAH Steel Corporation. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after May 19.
The ITA also determined that LS Metal Co. Ltd. had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.
Aircraft. The ITA has initiated AD and CV duty investigations of 100- to 150-seat large civil aircraft from Canada. The alleged dumping margin is 79.82 percent and the estimated subsidy rate is 79.41 percent. The ITA’s preliminary determinations are due by July 21 (CV) and Oct. 4 (AD).
The scope of these investigations covers aircraft, regardless of seating configuration, that have a standard 100- to 150-seat, two-class seating capacity and a minimum 2,900 nautical mile range. All aircraft covered by this description are included regardless of whether they enter the U.S. fully or partially assembled and whether they are approved for use by the Federal Aviation Administration at the time of entry. The subject aircraft are currently classifiable under HTSUS 8802.40.0040 and may also be classifiable under HTSUS 8802.40.0090.
Steel Plate. The International Trade Commission has made final affirmative AD injury determinations on carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and a final affirmative CV injury determination on such goods from Korea. As a result, the ITA will soon issue AD and/or CV duty orders on these goods.
