The US Department of Commerce (DOC) has announced its final determinations in the antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of large diameter welded pipe from Canada (AD only), Greece (AD only), South Korea (AD and CVD), and Turkey (AD and CVD), determining that exporters from Canada, Greece, Korea, and Turkey have sold large diameter welded pipe at less than fair value in the United States at the following rates: Canada - 12.32 percent, Greece - 9.96 percent, South Korea - 7.03 percent to 20.39 percent, and Turkey - 4.55 percent to 5.05 percent.

The DOC also found that exporters from South Korea and Turkey received countervailable subsidies at rates ranging from 0.01 percent to 27.42 percent and 0.92 percent to 3.72 percent, respectively.

The US International Trade Commission (ITC) is currently scheduled to make its final injury determinations on or about April 5, 2019. If the ITC makes affirmative final injury determinations, the DOC will issue AD and CVD orders. If the ITC makes negative final determinations of injury, the investigations will be terminated and no orders will be issued.
