Notice Of Revocation Of Antidumping Duty Orders: Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings From Brazil, Taiwan, And Thailand.

Summary

Pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”), the United States International Trade Commission (“the Commission”) determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from Brazil (A-351-505), Taiwan (A-583-507), and Thailand (A-549-601) is not likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time (65 FR 7891 (February 16, 2000)). Therefore, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.222(i)(1), the Department of Commerce (“the Department”) is revoking the antidumping duty orders on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from Brazil, Taiwan, and Thailand.

As a result of these reviews, the Department found that revocation of the antidumping duty orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and notified the Commission of the magnitude of the margin likely to prevail were the orders to be revoked (see Final Results of Full Sunset Review: Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from Brazil, 64 FR 66886 (November 30, 1999), Final Results of Expedited Sunset Review: Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings from Taiwan, 64 FR 42665 (August 5, 1999), and Final Results of Full Sunset Review: Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings From Thailand, 64 FR 66884 (November 30,1999)).

On February 16, 2000, the Commission determined, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from Brazil, Taiwan, and Thailand would not likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time (see Malleable Cast Iron Pipe Fittings From Brazil, Taiwan, and Thailand, 65 FR 7891 (February 16, 2000), and USITC Publication 3274, Inv.
