2017-06-15/ RECENT DEALS/ Hao LIU

On June 13, 2017 (American time), the US Department of Commerce rendered the final award on the fifth administrative review of the anti-dumping investigation into copper pipes imported from China, ascertaining that the dumping margin of Zhejiang Hailiang Co., Ltd. and its affiliates (hereinafter "Hailiang") was zero. During this administrative review, JT&N participated in the investigation as the agent of Hailiang.

On December 6, 2016 (American time), the US Department of Commerce rendered the preliminary award on the fifth administrative review of the anti-dumping investigation into copper pipes imported from China, ascertaining that the dumping margin of Hailiang was 8.53%. After the preliminary award was issued, JT&N, on behalf of Hailiang, actively submitted legal defense opinions claiming that there were errors in the calculation of dumping margin by the US Department of Commerce, and simultaneously submitted abundant factual information as evidence. In the final award, the US Department of Commerce accepted several claims put forward by JT&N, revised the method for calculating the dumping margin of Hailiang, and finally reduced the dumping margin of Hailiang from 8.53% in the preliminary award to 0%.

After the above-mentioned "zero tax rate" final award comes into effect, the US Customs will refund the anti-dumping duty deposit levied on copper pipes exported by Hailiang during the review period, and will no longer levy any anti-dumping duty deposit on copper pipes subsequently exported by Hailiang.

During this administrative review, JT&N participated in all the investigation procedures as the agent of Hailiang. This project was led by Senior Partner Chen YANG and participated by Senior Partner Zheng XU and lawyer Hao LIU as the chief attorneys.
