The US Department of Commerce has imposed preliminary countervailing duties (CVD) on non-refillable steel cylinders from China.


The agency invited comments from interested parties and companies on its preliminary determination of CVD on steel cylinders that were imported from China between January 1, 2019, and December 31, 2019. 


Commerce indicated in an order issued on Thursday that it had preliminarily determined that some Chinese exporters of non-refillable steel cylinders were being given countervailable subsidies. It plans to levy the following duties that are proportionate to the estimated value of goods imported from nine suppliers and a separate duty for all other exporters of this product from China:


Ningbo Eagle Machinery & Technology25.91pc
Wuyi Xilinde Machinery Manufacture22.97pc
Jiangsu Kasidi Chemical Machinery190.67pc
Ningbo Runkey CGA Cylinders
Ninhua Group
Shanghai Ronghua High-Pressure Vessel
Zhejiang Ansheng Mechanical Manufacture
Zhejiang Nof Chemical
All others24.11pc


Commerce has asked US Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) to suspend the liquidation of all steel cylinders from the above companies. The CBP will also require cash deposits from importers that are equivalent to the above rates for the material until a final determination is made.
