By the decision of the board of the Eurasian Economic Commission, it was decided to extend the current anti-dumping measures against steel pipes originating from Ukraine until December 20, 2026. The corresponding decision was published on the website of the Eurasian Economic Union on Friday, December 24.
The anti-dumping duty for some types of steel pipes from Ukraine was established in 2011 in accordance with the decision of the Customs Union Commission and extended until June 1, 2021 by the decision of the EEC Board in 2016. At the initiative of several factories - manufacturers from the EAEU, a repeated anti-dumping investigation was launched in February 2021.
“Taking into account that Ukrainian producers have unloaded capacities, limited access for them to other markets, and also taking into account the size of the union's market and geographical proximity to Ukraine, the termination of the anti-dumping measure carries great risks of an increase in the supply of Ukrainian pipes to the EAEU by dumping prices to the detriment of the interests of the EAEU producers, ”said EEC Minister of Trade Andrei Slepnev, quoted by the press service.
The duty for casing pipes imported into the EAEU from Ukraine is 18.9% of the customs value, 19.9% for tubing, from 19.4 to 37.8% for oil pipelines.
