– Products adhered (for example, by welding or fasteners) to form subassemblies.
– The welded pipes.
– The products included in a packaged kit with the necessary parts for the assembly of a finished product without further finishing or manufacturing of the parts (finished goods kit).

The measure will be in force for a maximum period of 9 months and is intended to ensure that, if the results of the investigation lead to the imposition of anti-dumping duties (calculated up to 37% anti-dumping duties), such duties can be retroactively collected with respect to registered imports.
