Effective August 27, 2018, the Commission established a general schedule for the conduct of the final phase of its investigations on large diameter welded (LDW) pipe from Canada, China, Greece, India, Korea, and Turkey,
following preliminary determinations by the U.S. Department of Commerce (“Commerce”) that certain benefits which constitute subsidies within the meaning of section 703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China, India, Korea, and Turkey of large diameter welded (LDW) pipe, and that such products from Canada, China, Greece, India, Korea, and Turkey are being sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV) within the meaning of section 733 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b).
Notice of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigations and of a public hearing held in connection therewith was given by posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the notice in the Federal Register on September 6, 2018 (83 FR 45279). The hearing was held in Washington, DC, on November 6, 2018, and all persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in person or by counsel. Following affirmative final determinations by Commerce regarding LTFV and subsidized imports of LDW pipe from China and India, the Commission issued its final determinations that an industry in the United States was materially injured by reason of LTFV and subsidized imports of LDW line pipe from India; that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of LTFV and subsidized imports of LDW structural pipe from China; and that an industry in the United States is threatened with material injury by reason of LTFV imports of LDW line pipe from China. Further, the Commission has terminated the countervailing duty investigation on Start Printed Page 8893LDW line pipe from China and the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on LDW structural pipe from India. Finally, the Commission has determined that an industry in the United States is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of LTFV and subsidized imports of stainless steel LDW pipe from China and India.
Commerce has issued final affirmative determinations with respect to LTFV imports of LDW pipe from Canada,
and imports of LDW pipe subsidized by the governments of Korea
Accordingly, the Commission currently is issuing a supplemental schedule for its investigations on LTFV imports of LDW pipe from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey, and on imports of LDW pipe subsidized by the governments of Korea and Turkey. This supplemental schedule is as follows: the deadline for filing supplemental party comments on Commerce's final antidumping and countervailing duty determinations is March 11, 2019. Supplemental party comments may address only Commerce's final determinations regarding LTFV imports of LDW pipe from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey and imports of LDW pipe subsidized by the governments of Korea and Turkey. These supplemental final comments may not contain new factual information and may not exceed five (5) pages in length. The supplemental staff report in the final phase of these investigations regarding subject imports from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey will be placed in the nonpublic record on March 21, 2019; and a public version will be issued thereafter.
For further information concerning these investigations see the Commission's notice cited above and the Commission's Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A and C (19 CFR part 207).
