Husteel Co., Ltd. v. United States
by: Kelly

Section: Federal Circuit and CIT Case Summaries

The CIT sustained in part and remanded in part Commerce’s corrected remand redetermination in the 2016-2017 antidumping duty administrative review of welded line pipe from Korea. The court sustained Commerce’s reliance on SeAH’s third country sales to Canada to calculate normal value and to calculate NEXTEEL’s constructed value profit. The court also sustained Commerce’s reclassification of NEXTEEL’s suspended production losses, its reliance on SeAH’s annual weighted-average costs, its treatment of PPA’s general and administrative expenses to calculate SeAH’s constructed export price, and its ministerial correction to SeAH’s dumping margin. The CIT remanded for further explanation or reconsideration of Commerce’s decision to adjust NEXTEEL’s prime and non-prime costs.
