WTO rejects most Indian claims against US Duties on Steel Pipes

Reuters reported that World Trade Organization adjudicators on Friday rejected most of India’s claims that the United States was not respecting an earlier WTO ruling related to anti-subsidy duties on Indian steel. The WTO panel rejected many of the Indian complaints, although it did say that the United States needed to bring a legislative provision into line with WTO rules.

India brought its original complaint to the WTO in April 2012, after the US Commerce Department set an import duty of nearly 286 percent on a circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe product from India to offset government subsidies. India had complained that the United States failed to meet an April 2016 deadline to comply with a WTO decision that faulted it over its imposition of countervailing duties on hot-rolled carbon steel products from India.

The Commerce Department acted after receiving a petition from Allied Tube and Conduit, JMC Steel Group, Wheatland Tube and United States Steel Corp.
