Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

HFC Blends. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting Aug. 7 in Washington, D.C., to hold a preliminary vote in its antidumping injury investigation of hydrofluorocarbon blends and components from China. If this vote is affirmative the investigation will continue; otherwise, it will be terminated.

Sawblades. Also at its Aug. 7 meeting the ITC will vote in its sunset review of the AD duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China. If this vote is affirmative the order will be continued for five years; otherwise, it will be revoked.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyester staple fibers from Korea for the period May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Rectangular Pipe and Tube. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on light-walled rectangular pipe and tube from Turkey for the period May 1, 2013, through April 30, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for producer/exporter CINAR Boru Profil Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. No AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods from this company during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods from this company that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Aug. 5.

Plastic Bags. In its sunset review of the countervailing duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from Vietnam, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies at rates of 5.28 percent to 52.56 percent.

Stainless Steel Bar. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from Spain for the period March 1, 2014, through Feb. 28, 2015, after the petitioners timely withdrew their request for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
