Davis Index: Market Intelligence for the Global Metals and Recycled Materials Markets

The US Department of Commerce has amended the final results of its antidumping (AD) order on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe originating in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) due to an error in calculation. 


In its amended final results on December 4, 2020, Commerce acknowledged that it incorrectly assessed Universal Tube and Plastic Industries’ home market commissions, which led to a change in its AD margin to 3.63pc from the originally calculated rate of 3.79pc for material sold in the US between December 1, 2017, and November 30, 2018. 


Since Universal was one of the two companies selected by Commerce for individual examination, the AD rate for all other producers from the UAE has also been changed to 3.06pc from 3.14pc. The duty for Conares Metal Supply, the second company under individual review, remains unchanged at 2.49pc.
