Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Aluminum Extrusions. In the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on aluminum extrusions from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013, the  International Trade Administration has determined net subsidy rates of 3.59 percent to 222.82 percent. CV duties at these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 14. The ITA also rescinded this review with respect to various companies and will assess CV duties on entries of subject goods from these companies at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Citrate Salts. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013, the ITA has determined a net countervailable subsidy rate of 30.93 percent for Laiwu Taihe Biochemistry Co. Ltd. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from Taihe that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 14.

In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on these goods for the period May 1, 2013, through April 30, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero for RZBC Import & Export Co. Ltd. and 6.61 percent for Taihe. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 14. The ITA also determined that Yixing Union did not have any reviewable transactions during the period of review and that its AD cash deposit rate will remain unchanged.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture. In the preliminary 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 reviewable transactions during the period of review, that the company selected as the sole mandatory respondent is not eligible for a separate rate and is therefore part of the China-wide entity, and that six other companies for which a review was requested also failed to establish their eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity.

Steel Nails. The ITA has amended its final affirmative dumping determination on steel nails from the United Arab Emirates after the Court of International Trade sustained its final remand redetermination. The ITA has calculated a revised weighted average dumping margins of zero for Precision Fasteners LLC; as a result, subject goods both produced and exported by Precision Fasteners will be excluded from the scope of the AD duty order. The ITA also calculated a revised dumping margin of 2.86 percent for Dubai Wire FZE, but this margin is superseded by the AD cash deposit rate currently in effect for that company.
