Determinations

On the basis of the record [2] developed in the subject five-year reviews, the United States International Trade Commission determines,[3] pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)) (the Act), that revocation of the countervailing duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Turkey and revocation of the antidumping duty orders on circular welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Brazil, India, Korea, Mexico, Taiwan, Thailand, and Turkey would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. The Commission further determines [4] that revocation of the antidumping duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipe and tube from Venezuela would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.

The Commission also determines [5] that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on light-walled rectangular carbon steel pipes and tubes from Argentina and Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. The Commission further determines [6] that revocation of the antidumping duty order on light-walled rectangular carbon steel pipe and tube from Singapore would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.

The Commission additionally determines [7] that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on oil country tubular goods (OCTG) other than drill pipe and drill pipe from Canada and Taiwan would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the respective domestic industries in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.

The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on March 9, 2000, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel.
