The Australian Customs and Border Protection Service has announced that it has terminated its antidumping (AD) investigation regarding certain hollow structural sections from Thailand.

The Customs and Border Protection Service found that there has been no dumping regarding any of the goods subject to the investigation by Thai exporters Saha Thai Steel Pipe Public Co., Ltd and Pacific Pipe Public Co. Ltd. Additionally, it has terminated the investigation for Thailand altogether, finding the total volume of goods exported to Australia over a reasonable examination period from Thailand from all other Thai exporters to be negligible.

However, the investigation of allegedly dumped goods from China, South Korea, Malaysia and Taiwan and of allegedly subsidized goods from China will continue. The antidumping investigation started in September 2011 upon the request of Australia-based hollow structural sections producer OneSteel Australian Tube Mills Pty Ltd.

The goods in question are certain electric resistance welded pipe and tube made of carbon steel, comprising circular and non-circular hollow sections in galvanized and non-galvanized finishes. The goods are classified under item numbers 73063000, 73066100 and 73066900.
