Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Ball Bearings. The International Trade Administration has amended the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan for the period May 1, 2004, through April 30, 2005, pursuant to a court decision. The revised weighted average dumping margins are 13.91 percent for Nachi-Fujikoshi Corporation and 8.02 percent for NTN Corporation. If these rates are finalized, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to use them to assess AD duties on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. However, because this order was revoked effective Sept. 15, 2011, no AD cash deposit requirements on entries of subject merchandise are required.

Helical Spring Lock Washers. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on helical spring lock washers from China for the period Oct. 1, 2012, through Sept. 30, 2013, the ITA has found a weighted average dumping margin of 192.88 percent for exporter Jiangsu RC Import & Export Co. Ltd. as well as the China-wide entity. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 17.

PET Film. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from China for the period Nov. 1, 2010, through Oct. 31, 2011, pursuant to a court decision. The revised weighted average dumping margin for exporters DuPont Teijin Films China Limited and Tianjin Wanhua Co. Ltd. is 4.42 percent. If this rate is finalized, the ITA will instruct CBP to use it to assess AD duties on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. However, new cash deposit rates for both these exporters have been established and will not be revised based on these amended final results.

PC Strand. In its expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on pre-stressed concrete steel wire strand from Brazil, India, Japan, South Korea, Mexico and Thailand, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at rates of 118.75 percent for Brazil, 102.07 percent for India, 13.30 percent for Japan, 54.19 percent for Korea, 77.20 percent for Mexico and 12.91 percent for Thailand.

Graphite Electrodes. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on small diameter graphite electrodes from China for the period Feb. 1, 2013, through Jan. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined that Henan Sanli Carbon Products Co. Ltd. is not entitled to a separate rate and should remain part of the China-wide entity, which currently has an AD duty rate of 159.64 percent. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 17.
