Anti-dumping decision postponed

Synalloy Corporation announced this week that it, along with other anti-dumping petitioners like Bristol Meyers, have made a procedural filing to the US Department of Commerce and the US International Trade Commission (USITC), to postpone USITC’s initial anti-dumping decisions.
The postponement was made on the request of USITC due to the recent government shutdowns in the United States. The original determinations in the case were scheduled to take place from October 23 to December 30, 2013.
Synalloy Corp. is a holding company that owns subsidiaries in business activities, which include the production of stainless steel pipe and piping systems as well as specialty chemicals. It did not anticipate having to file for postponement but in the meantime doesn’t predict any negative effects on its business.
The initial anti-dumping decision is now expected to take place on December 30, 2013, with the final decision due by mid-2014. If the determination is affirmative, duty deposits would have to be paid no later than the preliminary ruling date and could even be retroactive 90 days earlier.
