China Announces Anti-Dumping Probe of Imported Alloy Steel Pipes

May 11, 2013

Beijing (dpa) - China has launched an anti-dumping investigation into high-performance alloy steel tubes from the European Union, Japan and the United States, state media reported Saturday.

The move follows Wednesday's announcement that the EU plans to impose anti-dumping duties averaging 47 percent on Chinese photovoltaic imports from June 6.

A complaint was lodged by Inner Mongolia North Heavy Industries Group on March 22 against imported seamless steel tubes for high temperatures and pressures, the Commerce Ministry said.

The materials under investigation are mostly used in steam pipes and boilers for power plants, the Xinhua news agency said.
