Administrative Review of CVD Order on Standard Pipe from Turkey

Administrative Review of CVD Order on Standard Pipe from Turkey (2013) – Amended Final Results

Falls Church, VA. November 13, 2015. Earlier today, the U.S. Department of Commerce (DOC) announced that it had amended the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes (standard pipe) from Turkey.

The review covered four producers/exporters – (a) Borusan Group, Borusan Holding A.S., Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., Borusan Istikbal Ticaret T.A.S., and Borusan Lojistik Dagitim Pepolama Tasimacilik ve Tic A.S. (collectively “the Borusan companies”); (b) Umran Celik Born Sanayii A.S. (a/k/a Umran Steel Pipe Inc.); (c) Guven Steel Pipe (a/k/a Guven Celik Born San. ve Tic Ltd.; and (d) Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S., Toscelik Metal Ticaret A.S., and Tosyali dis Ticaret A.S. and (collectively “the Toscelik companies”) – during the period from January 1 through December 31, 2013.

The DOC had originally calculated a final CVD margin of 0.91% for the Borusan companies, which was the only mandatory respondent in this review. The DOC assigned the same final CVD margin to the three companies which were subject to the review – Umran, Guven, and the Toscelik companies – but which were not individually examined.

As the result of correcting a ministerial error in its original subsidy calculation, the DOC has amended the final CVD rate for all four companies to 0.88% instead of 0.91%.

Accordingly, the countervailing duty deposit rate is now 0.88% for the Borusan companies, Umran, Guven, and the Toscelik companies.
