Commerce Keeps Duties on Pipe from China

The U.S. Department of Commerce will maintain antidumping and countervailing duties on Chinese steel pipe imports, upholding the original penalties levied in 2009.

"With thousands of family-supporting jobs at stake, we applaud the DOC ruling to protect American workers. When our international trade partners break the law, we rightly depend on our government to enforce it to protect our communities and prevent the continued erosion of our industrial base," says Leo W. Gerard, president of the United Steelworkers International.

The Commerce Department ruling supports petitioners who claimed OCTG products from China were being finished in other countries in order to alter the country of origin.

"The USW is especially grateful to Senators Sherrod Brown and Rob Portman of Ohio for their leadership in calling on the DOC to prevent Chinese pipe producers from exploiting a loophole that would have enabled them to avoid existing antidumping and countervailing duties by changing a product's country of origin after minor alterations elsewhere," Gerard adds.
