Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Fresh Garlic. In its changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from China, the International Trade Administration has preliminarily determined that Lanling Qingshui Vegetable Foods Co. Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Cangshan Qingshui Vegetable Foods Co. Ltd. If these results are finalized, Qingshui will be assigned the AD cash deposit rate currently assigned to Cangshan Qingshui with respect to subject merchandise, which is $3.06 per kilogram.

Carbon Steel Plate. The International Trade Commission has scheduled full sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on cut-to-length carbon steel plate from China, Russia and Ukraine. A hearing will be held Sept. 29, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Sept. 22, pre-hearing briefs are due by Sept. 17, post-hearing briefs are due by Oct. 8, and final comments are due by Nov. 2. These reviews will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.

Sugar. The ITC has determined that the injurious effect of imports of sugar from Mexico on the domestic industry as a whole is eliminated by suspension agreements agreed to by the ITA, the government of Mexico and Mexican sugar exporters. As a result, these suspension agreements will remain in effect. 

Supercalendered Paper. The ITA has initiated a CV duty investigation of supercalendered paper from Canada. SC paper is uncoated paper that has undergone a calendering process in which the base sheet, made of pulp and filler (typically clay, talc or other mineral additive), is processed through a set of supercalenders, a supercalender, or a soft nip calender operation. The scope of this investigation covers all SC paper regardless of basis weight, brightness, opacity, smoothness or grade and whether in rolls or in sheets. Further, the scope covers all uncoated paper that meets the scope definition regardless of the type of pulp fiber or filler material used to produce the paper. Subject imports primarily enter under HTSUS subheading 4802.61.3035 and could also enter under subheadings 4802.61.3010, 4802.62.3000, 4802.62.6020 and 4802.69.3000. Specifically excluded from the scope are imports of paper printed with final content of printed text or graphics.
