The anti-dumping tariff on Vallourec units Vallourec Deutschland GmbH and Vallourec Tubes France is 57.9%, with all other EU companies face tariffs of 60.8%.

China, the world’s largest steel producer, and the consumer had imposed 13-14.1% tariffs on companies in the United States and the EU in 2014, which expired on May 10, 2019.

The decision to extend the anti-dumping tariff follows a request from the Chinese domestic steel tubes and pipes sector, the ministry said.
