Case Number:   A–570–880

Anniversary Month:  July

 Final Rates:  (see below)


Scope: 

The merchandise subject to this proceeding is certain welded carbon quality steel pipes and tubes, of circular cross-section, and with an outside diameter of 0.372 inches (9.45 mm) or more, but not more than 16 inches (406.4 mm), whether or not stenciled, regardless of wall thickness, surface finish (e.g., black, galvanized, or painted), end finish (e.g., plain end, beveled end, grooved, threaded, or threaded and coupled), or industry specification (e.g., ASTM, proprietary, or other), generally known as standard pipe and structural pipe (they may also be referred to as circular, structural, or mechanical tubing).

Specifically, the term ‘‘carbon quality’’ includes products in which (a) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (b) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (c) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, as indicated:
(i) 1.80 percent of manganese;
(ii) 2.25 percent of silicon;
(iii) 1.00 percent of copper;
(iv) 0.50 percent of aluminum;
(v) 1.25 percent of chromium;
(vi) 0.30 percent of cobalt;
(vii) 0.40 percent of lead;
(viii) 1.25 percent of nickel;
(ix) 0.30 percent of tungsten;
(x) 0.15 percent of molybdenum;
(xi) 0.10 percent of niobium; (
xii) 0.41 percent of titanium;
(xiii) 0.15 percent of vanadium; or
(xiv) 0.15 percent of zirconium.

Standard pipe is made primarily to American Society for Testing and Materials (‘‘ASTM’’) specifications, but can be made to other specifications. Standard pipe is made primarily to ASTM pecifications A–53, A–135, and A–795. Structural pipe is made primarily to ASTM specifications A–252 and A–500. Standard and structural pipe may also be produced to proprietary specifications rather than to industry specifications. This is often the case, for example, with fence tubing. Pipe multiple–stenciled to a standard and/or structural specification and to any other specification, such as the American Petroleum Institute (‘‘API’’) API–5L specification, is also covered by the scope of this investigation when it meets the physical description set forth above and also has one or more of the following characteristics: is 32 feet in length or less; is less than 2.0 inches (50 mm) in outside diameter; has a galvanized and/or painted surface finish; or has a threaded and/or coupled end finish. (The term ‘‘painted’’ does not include coatings to inhibit rust in transit, such as varnish, but includes coatings such as polyester.) 

The scope of this investigation does not include: (a) pipe suitable for use in boilers, superheaters, heat exchangers, condensers, refining furnaces and feedwater heaters, whether or not cold drawn; (b) mechanical tubing, whether or not cold–drawn; (c) finished electrical conduit; (d) finished scaffolding; (e) tube and pipe hollows for redrawing; (f) oil country tubular goods produced to API specifications; and (g) line pipe produced to only API specifications.

The pipe products that are the subject of this investigation are currently classifiable in HTSUS statistical reporting numbers 7306.30.10.00, 7306.30.50.25, 7306.30.50.32, 7306.30.50.40, 7306.30.50.55, 7306.30.50.85, 7306.30.50.90, 7306.50.10.00, 7306.50.50.50, 7306.50.50.70, 7306.19.10.10, 7306.19.10.50, 7306.19.51.10, and 7306.19.51.50. However, the product description, and not the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) classification, is dispositive of whether merchandise imported into the United States falls within the scope of the investigation.

First Review of Circular Welded Carbon Quality Steel Pipe from China Rescinded -- Cash Deposited As Estimated Antidumping Duties Now Are the Final Rate.
On November 4, 2009, the U.S. Department of Commerce published the recission of its antidumping duty administrative review of circular welded carbon quality steel pipe from China. This review affects entries made from January 15, 2008, through June 30, 2009, and covered the following 14 companies: of the following 13 companies: Baoshan Iron & Steel Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Yulong Steel Pipe Co., Ltd., Liaoning Northern Steel Pipe Co., Ltd., Hunan Hengyang Steel Tube (Group) Co., Ltd., CNOOC Kingland Pipeline Co., Ltd., Jiangsu Changbao Steel Tube Co., Ltd., Wuxi Fastube Industry Co., Ltd., Weifang East Steel Pipe Co., Ltd., Tianjin Shuangjie Steel Pipe Co., Ltd., Zhejiang Kingland Pipeline Industry Co., Ltd., SteelFORCE Far East Ltd., Tianjin Baolai International Trade Co., Ltd., and Shanghai Zhongyou TIPO Steel Pipe Co., Ltd., and Sino Link SCS (Asia) Limited. 

Because the review was rescinded of all companies, the cash deposits of estimated antidumping duty orders made when the merchandise entered the United States is the final antidumping duty for all entries.
