Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Cold-Rolled Steel. The International Trade Administration has initiated antidumping duty investigations of certain cold-rolled steel flat products from Brazil, China, India, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Russia and the United Kingdom and countervailing duty investigations of such goods from Brazil, China, India, Korea and Russia. The International Trade Commission’s preliminary AD and CV injury determinations are due by Sept. 11; if they are affirmative, the ITA will make its preliminary determinations in October (CV) and January (AD).

Steel Shelving Units. The ITA has made final affirmative AD and CV duty determinations on boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale from China. AD duty rates range from 17.55 to 112.68 percent and U.S. Customs and Border Protection will be instructed to collect AD cash deposits at these rates. CV duty rates range from 12.40 to 80.45 percent, but no cash deposits will be required unless and until the ITC issues a final affirmative CV injury determination.

Crepe Paper. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on crepe paper from China, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will be continued for five years.
