Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

New Administrative Reviews. The International Trade Administration has initiated administrative reviews of the following antidumping and/or countervailing duty orders for the periods April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016 (AD) and Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015 (CV). The ITA intends to issue the final results of these reviews no later than April 30, 2017.

- solid fertilizer-grade ammonium nitrate from Russia (AD)

- activated carbon from China (AD)

- steel threaded rod from China (AD)

- drawn stainless steel sinks from China (AD/CV)

- magnesium metal from China (AD)

Ball Bearings. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom for the period May 1, 2009, through April 30, 2010, to reflect a court decision. The amended weighted average dumping margins are 0.65 percent to 6.37 percent for Japan and 6.47 percent for the UK.

If the court ruling stands, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties based on these rates on entries of subject goods during the period of review. However, because these orders were revoked as of Sept. 15, 2011, no AD cash deposits for future entries will be required.

Pipes and Tubes. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Turkey for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2012, pursuant to a court decision. The revised net subsidy rate for producer/exporter Toscelik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S. is 0.44 percent (de minimis).

Diamond Sawblades. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China for the period Nov. 1, 2011, through Oct. 31, 2012, pursuant to a court decision. The revised weighted average dumping margin for the China-wide entity is 82.05 percent.

If the court ruling stands, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties based on this rate on entries of subject goods during the period of review. However, the current AD cash deposit rate for the China-wide entity is already 82.05 percent, so no change as a result of these amended final results will be needed.

Vehicle and Truck Tires. The ITA has initiated a new shipper review of the AD duty order on passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China for the period Aug. 1, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016. This review will determine whether Shandong Xinghongyuan Tire Co. Ltd. is entitled to a separate AD duty rate.

Steel Pipe. The ITA has made affirmative preliminary dumping determinations on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from Pakistan, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Vietnam. The ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 11.80 percent for Pakistan, 7.86 percent for Oman, 6.10 percent to 9.25 percent for the UAE, and zero to 113.18 percent for Vietnam.

Transfer Drive Components. The ITA has made affirmative preliminary dumping determinations on iron mechanical transfer drive components from Canada and China. The ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 100.47 percent to 191.34 percent for Canada and 2.17 percent to 401.68 percent for China.

Off-Road Tires. The ITA has postponed from June 22 to Aug. 11 its preliminary AD duty determination on new pneumatic off-the-road tires from India.
