China raises anti-dumping duties on Alloy-Steel pipes from US, EU
BEIJING (Scrap Register): China's Ministry of Commerce (MOC) has announced that it will raise anti-dumping duties on imports of alloy-steel seamless pipes from the United States and the European Union.
U.S. producers of the tubes and pipes for high temperature and pressure service are subject to anti-dumping duties of between 101% and 147.8%, while rates for EU companies range between 57.9% and 60.8%.
The adjusted rates took effect on Friday.
China started to impose anti-dumping duties ranged between 13% and 14.1% on imported alloy-steel seamless pipes from those regions in 2014 on the grounds that the products were being dumped on the Chinese market at below market prices.
The latest decision follows a review last year that found such dumping still existed.
