USITC VOTES TO CONTINUE CASES
ON WELDED STAINLESS STEEL PRESSURE PIPE
FROM MALAYSIA, THAILAND, AND VIETNAM
The United States International Trade Commission (USITC) today determined that there is a reasonable indication that a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of welded stainless steel pressure pipe from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam that are allegedly sold in the United States at less than fair value.
All six Commissioners voted in the affirmative.
As a result of the Commission's affirmative determinations, the U.S. Department of Commerce will continue to conduct its investigations on imports of this product from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam, with its preliminary antidumping duty determinations due on or about October 23, 2013.
The Commission's public report Welded Stainless Steel Pressure Pipe from Malaysia, Thailand, and Vietnam (Investigation Nos. 731-TA-1210-1212 (Preliminary), USITC Publication 4413, July 2013) will contain the views of the Commission and information developed during the investigations.
Copies of the report are expected to be available after July 30, 2013, by emailing email@example.com, calling 202-205-2000, or writing to the Office of the Secretary, 500 E Street SW, Washington, DC 20436. Requests may also be faxed to 202-205-2104.
