Oil Country Tubular Goods. In its changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on oil country tubular goods from Korea, the International Trade Administration has determined that Hyundai Steel Corporation is the successor-in-interest to Hyundai HYSCO for purposes of determining AD duty cash deposits and liabilities. Consequently, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject goods produced or exported by Hyundai Steel and entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Sept. 21 at HYSCO’s current AD rate of 6.49 percent.
