NEW YORK The Canadian International Trade Tribunal
(CITT) has determined that the dumping and subsidizing of
carbon and alloy steel pipe piles, also known as piling pipe,
with an outside diameter of 3½ to 16 inches from China
has not caused injury to the domestic industry.
Despite a significant increase in the volume of imports, the
domestic industry generally performed well and was able to
increase its selling prices and improve financial performance,
productivity, employment and wages, the CITT said.
While evidence suggested that the imports had some degree of
adverse effect, the injury was not enough to be significant, it
However, the CITT did rule that imports from Jan. 1, 2011, to
March 31, 2012, threatened to cause injury, and were subject to
a weighted-average dumping margin of 89.6 percent and a
countervailing duty margin of 11.7 percent.
