USITC releases decision on import of OCTG

August 25, 2014

The U.S. International Trade Commission (USITC). Washington, D.C., has determined that a U.S. industry is materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of certain oil country tubular goods (OCTG) from India, Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam that the U.S. Department of Commerce has determined are sold in the U.S. at less than fair value and imports of these products that are subsidized by the governments of India and Turkey.

The USITC further determined that the U.S. industry is not materially injured or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of these products from Philippines and Thailand.

As a result of the USITC's affirmative determinations, the U.S. DOC will issue countervailing duty orders on imports of these products from India and Turkey and antidumping duty orders on imports of these products from India, Korea, Taiwan, Turkey, Ukraine, and Vietnam. No orders will be issued on imports of these products from Philippines and Thailand.

The commission's public report will be available after Sept. 15, 2014, at pubapps.usitc.gov/applications/publogs/qry_publication_loglist.asp.
