The European Union (EU) has extended its anti-dumping (AD) measures on stainless steel tube and pipe butt-welding fittings from China and Taiwan to Malaysia.

19/04/2023

The AD measures were originally imposed in 2016 after the EU found that these products were being dumped in the EU market at below fair market value. The measures have been in place ever since, and the EU has now decided to extend them to Malaysia.

The decision to extend the AD measures to Malaysia is based on the EU’s finding that Malaysian producers are also dumping these products in the EU market. The EU estimates that the AD measures will save EU producers and consumers €150 million per year.

The AD measures will remain in place for five years, after which the EU will review them to determine whether they are still necessary.

The European Commission extended the anti-dumping (AD) measures on imports of stainless steel tube and pipe butt-welding fittings from China and Taiwan for another five years, due to the possible resumed injury if the measure is revoked.

The renewed measure was also extended to fittings from Malaysia, resulting from an anti-circumvention investigation that found that China’s producers were using assembly operations there to circumvent AD measures imposed on China.

The AD duty rate ranges from 5.1% to 12.1% for Taiwan, from 30.7% to 64.9% for China, and 64.9% for Malaysia, of which Pantech Stainless & Alloy Industries Sdn Bhd and S.P. United Industry Sdn Bhd are exempted from the measures.
