The US Department of Commerce announced the initiation of new antidumping duty and countervailing duty investigations to determine whether forged steel fluid end blocks from Germany, India, and Italy are being dumped in the United States, and to find if producers in China, Germany, India, and Italy are receiving unfair subsidies. These antidumping and countervailing duty investigations were initiated based on petitions filed by the FEB Fair Trade Coalition; Ellwood City Forge Company, Ellwood Quality Steels Company, and Ellwood National Steel Company and A. Finkl & Sons. The alleged dumping margins are 83.37 percent for Germany, 198.85 percent for India, and 87.04 percent for Italy.

There are 24 subsidy programs alleged for China, 16 subsidy programs alleged for Germany, 29 subsidy programs alleged for India, and 20 subsidy programs alleged for Italy.

The petitioners estimated that imports of forged steel fluid end blocks China, Germany, India, and Italy were valued at approximately USD 17.8 million, USD 23.3 million, USD 44.4 million and USD 46.4 million, respectively, in 2018.

If Commerce makes affirmative findings in these investigations, and if the US International Trade Commission determines that dumped and/or unfairly subsidized US imports of forged steel fluid end blocks from China, Germany, India, and Italy are causing injury to the US industry, Commerce will impose duties on those imports in the amount of dumping and/or unfair subsidization found to exist.

During Commerce’s investigations into whether forged steel fluid end blocks from China, Germany, India, and Italy are being dumped and/or unfairly subsidized, the ITC will conduct its own investigations into whether the U.S. industry and its workforce are being harmed by such imports. The ITC will make its preliminary determinations on or before February 3, 2020. If the ITC preliminarily determines that there is injury or threat of injury, then Commerce’s investigations will continue, with the preliminary CVD determinations scheduled for March 13, 2020, and preliminary AD determinations scheduled for May 27, 2020, unless these deadlines are extended.
