Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Brass Sheet and Strip. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on brass sheet and strip from Germany for the period March 1, 2014, through Feb. 28, 2015, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of 22.61 percent to 55.60 percent. The ITA has also preliminarily determined that Schwermetall Halbzeugwerk GmbH & Co. KG, ThyssenKrupp VDM GmbH and Wieland-Werke AG had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period.

Transfer Drive Components. The ITA has made a preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determination on iron mechanical transfer drive components from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all entries of subject goods that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 11 and require cash deposits at the preliminary subsidy rates, which range from 2.68 percent to 166.77 percent. The ITA has also aligned its final AD and CV duty determinations on these goods to both be issued no later than Aug. 14.

PET Film, Sheet and Strip. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene film, sheet and strip from the United Arab Emirates for the period Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 4.44 percent for producer or exporter JBF RAK LLC. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 11.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined that 11 companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period. AD duties for entries of subject goods from seven companies that failed to establish their eligibility for separate rate status will be assessed at the China-wide rate of 216.01 percent. For the 11 companies determined to have no shipments, all suspended entries of subject goods under any of these companies’ AD case numbers will be liquidated at the China-wide rate. Cash deposit rates remain unchanged.
