The US International Trade Commission (ITC) today determined that a US industry is materially injured by reason of imports of cast iron soil pipe from China that the US Department of Commerce (DOC) has determined are subsidized and sold in the United States at less than fair value.

Chairman David S. Johanson and Commissioners Irving A. Williamson, Meredith M. Broadbent, Rhonda K. Schmidtlein, and Jason E. Kearns voted in the affirmative. 

As a result of the ITC’s affirmative determinations, the DOC will issue antidumping and countervailing duty orders on imports of this product from China.

The merchandise covered by these proceedings is cast iron soil pipe, whether finished or unfinished, regardless of industry or proprietary specifications, and regardless of wall thickness, length, diameter, surface finish, end finish, or stenciling. The scope of these investigations includes, but is not limited to, both hubless and hub and spigot cast iron soil pipe. Cast iron soil pipe is non-malleable iron pipe of various designs and sizes. Cast iron soil pipe is generally distinguished from other types of non-malleable cast iron pipe by the manner in which it is connected to cast iron soil pipe fittings.
