A host of US manufacturers can’t continue their legal bid to raise US duty levels on large diameter welded pipe from Canada after they missed a key deadline, the US Court of International Trade ruled October 16. Commerce in February determined that this pipe was being sold in the US at less than fair value.

The contested administrative determination is Large Diameter Welded Pipe From Canada: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 84 Fed. Reg. 6378 (Int’l Trade Admin. Feb. 27, 2019). Commerce determined that the merchandise subject to investigation, which was imports from Canada of welded carbon and alloy steel pipe more than 16 inches in nominal diameter, “is being, or is likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value during the period of investigation January 1, 2017, through December 31, 2017.” Id. In the investigation, Commerce determined an estimated individual weighted-average dumping margin of 12.32% for respondent Evraz Inc., NA (“Evraz”) a Canadian exporter and producer of the subject merchandise, and adopted this margin as the “all others” rate.1 Id., at 6379.

Plaintiffs, domestic producers of large-diameter welded pipe, are American Cast Iron Pipe Company, Berg Steel Pipe Corp., Berg Spiral Pipe Corp., Dura-Bond Industries, and Stupp Corporation, individually and as members of the American Line Pipe Producers Association; Greens Bayou Pipe Mill, LP; JSW Steel (USA) Inc.; Skyline Steel; Trinity Products LLC; and Welspun Tubular LLC.
