Anti-dumping proceedings concerning pipes and tubes from Macedonia, Russia and Turkey

By Notice 2018/C 347/6 of 28.09.1018, the European Union (EU) initiated an anti-dumping proceeding concerning imports of welded tubes, pipes and hollow profiles of square or rectangular cross-section, of iron (other than cast iron) or steel (other than stainless steel) originating in Macedonia, Russia and Turkey. Pipes used for oil or gas pipelines (line pipe) and casing and tubing used for the production of oil or gas are excluded from the scope of the anti-dumping proceeding. The products under investigation are currently classifiable within CN codes 7306 61 92 and 7306 61 99.

A complaint was lodged on 14 August 2018 by the “Defence Committee of the Welded Steel Tubes Industry of the European Union” on behalf of producers representing more than 40% of the total Union production of hollow sections.

The Commission’s dumping investigation

The Commission is now examining whether the above mentioned products are indeed being dumped and whether the dumped imports are causing demages to the Union industry. In accordance with the basic anti-dumping Regulation, this investigation will normally be concluded within 13 months, but no more than 14 months, of the date of publication of the notice of initiation of the anti-dumping proceeding.

The European Commission may, if necessary, adopt provisional anti-dumping measures within eight months of publication and definitive measures within fifteen months of publication.

Companies concerned and interested parties currently have the possibility to contact the Commission within certain time litmits in order to participate in the anti-dumping proceeding.
