Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Fresh Garlic. The International Trade Administration has announced its intent to rescind its new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from China because it has preliminarily determined that the new shipper sale of subject goods by the company under review, Jinxiang Huameng Imp & Exp Co., Ltd., was not bona fide.

Solar Cells. In its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China, the ITA has preliminarily determined that Hangzhou Sunny Energy Science and Technology Co. Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Hangzhou Zhejiang University Sunny Energy Science and Technology Co. Ltd. and is therefore entitled to its AD cash deposit rate with respect to entries of subject goods. Comments on this preliminary determination are due by June 9.

Frozen Fish Fillets. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam for the period Aug. 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010, to specify weighted average dumping margins of $0.19/kg for ten exporters. If these amended final results are finalized, AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on unliquidated entries of subject goods and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 11, 2016 (unless the applicable cash deposit rates have been superseded by rates calculated in an intervening administrative review).

Petroleum Wax Candles. The ITA is continuing the AD duty order on petroleum wax candles from China for five years, effective May 26.

The products covered by the order are certain scented or unscented petroleum wax candles made from petroleum wax and having fiber or paper-cored wicks. They are sold in the following shapes: tapers, spirals and straight-sided dinner candles; rounds, columns, pillars and votives; and various wax-filled containers. Subject candles are currently classifiable under HTSUS subheading 3406.00.00.
