The Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC), an executive body of the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), has launched a second antidumping investigation of imports of cold-rolled stainless seamless pipes from China, the commission said in a statement.
The investigation was launched on request from Chelyabinsk Pipe Works (ChelPipe), Pervouralsk New Pipe Plant, and TMK-INOX, a subsidiary of oil and gas pipe maker TMK.
In May 2013, the EEC imposed a 19.15% anti-dumping duty on imports of cold-rolled stainless seamless pipes from China. But from 2014, imports of these pipes from China fell, while imports of similar pipes from Malaysia increased. In January-June 2016, imports of pipes from Malaysia accounted for 39% of Russia’s combined imports of pipes.
Russian steel producers said in the request that Malaysia did not have its own production of such pipes, and the share of Malaysia’s imports of these pipes from China soared to 73% of the combined imports from 35% in the period from January 2013 through June 2016.
The Eurasian Economic Union comprises Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Armenia, and Kyrgyzstan. (Prime/Ukrainian metal)
