Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Hand Trucks. The International Trade Administration is continuing the antidumping duty order on hand trucks and certain parts thereof from China for five years, effective Aug. 19. As a result, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject goods.

The goods subject to this order are hand trucks manufactured from any material, whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete, suitable for any use, and certain parts thereof, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the projecting edges or toe plate, and any combination thereof. These items are typically imported under HTSUS subheading 8716.80.5010 but may also be imported under subheading 8716.80.5090. Specific parts of a hand truck, namely the vertical frame, the handling area and the projecting edges or toe plate, or any combination thereof, are typically imported under subheading 8716.90.5060.

Wood Flooring. The ITA has corrected the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2012, to indicate that the net subsidy rate for Linyi Youyou Wood Co. Ltd., an affiliate of Shanghai Lizhong Wood Products Co. Ltd., is 0.99 percent. This rate will be used to determine CV duties assessed on, and CV cash deposits for, entries of subject goods from this company.

Potassium Permanganate. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on potassium permanganate from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013, the ITA has determined that Pacific Accelerator Limited had no entries of subject goods during this time. This company does not have an individual rate or a separate rate and has never been reviewed in any prior segment of this proceeding and so is considered part of the China-wide entity, which is currently subject to an AD duty rate of 128.94 percent. AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from PAL that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Aug. 19.
