U.S. Steel claims errors in ITA’s OCTG ruling

Keywords: Tags  U.S. Steel, oil country tubular goods, OCTG, ministerial error, Thorsten Schier


NEW YORK — Lawyers for U.S. Steel Corp. have asked the U.S. Commerce Department to address three alleged ministerial errors in recent final determinations in a trade case against oil country tubular goods (OCTG) from nine nations.

Attorneys from Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP, Washington, filed the claims regarding anti-dumping duties on Ukrainian producer Interpipe Group and Vietnamese manufacturer SeAH Steel Vina Corp., a subsidiary of South Korea’s SeAH Steel Corp., and countervailing duties on India’s Jindal Saw Ltd.

The substance of the claims by the Pittsburgh-based steelmaker was redacted in public filings as it constitutes proprietary business information.

In final determinations by Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA), Interpipe was assessed a 6.73-percent dumping margin, SeAH Vina a 24.22-percent dumping margin and Jindal Saw a 19.11-percent countervailing duty (amm.com, July 11).

The U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) is scheduled to make a final injury ruling Aug. 25 in the Ukraine and Vietnam dumping investigation and the Indian subsidy case.
