Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Welded Line Pipe. The International Trade Commission has made final affirmative antidumping injury determinations on welded line pipe from Turkey and Korea and a final affirmative countervailing injury determination on welded line pipe from Turkey. As a result, the International Trade Administration will soon issue AD and/or CV duty orders on these goods.

The International Trade Administration has amended its final affirmative AD duty determination on welded line pipe from Korea to correct the weighted average dumping margins to a range of 2.53 percent to 6.23 percent. AD cash deposits at these rates are required for all shipments of subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 10.

Steel Wire Rod. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Mexico for the period Oct. 1, 2013, through Sept. 30, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 12.38 percent to 72.95 percent.

Drawn Stainless Steel Sinks. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks from China for the period Oct. 4, 2012, through Mar. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 2.82 percent to 8.06 percent, covering seven producers/exporters. AD duties based on the appropriate rate 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 10.

In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks from China for the period Aug. 6, 2012, through Dec. 31, 2013, the ITA has determined net subsidy rates of 9.83 percent (2013) and 3.91 percent (2012) for Guangdong Dongyuan Kitchenware Industrial Co., Ltd. CV duties at these rates will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the periods Aug. 6 through Dec. 3, 2012 (3.91 percent) and April 10 through Dec. 31, 2013 (9.83 percent). No CV duties will be assessed on entries made during the gap period. In addition, CV cash deposits at the rate of 9.83 percent will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 10.

The ITA has also rescinded this review with respect to Shunde Native Product Import and Export Co. Ltd. of Guangdong because it had no reviewable entries of subject goods during the period of review.

PET Resin. In its preliminary affirmative dumping determination on polyethylene terephthalate resin from China, the ITA inadvertently published exporter names that mismatched with the producer names and their related weighted average dumping margins. The following chart shows the correct correlations.

Aluminum Extrusions. The ITA has amended its final affirmative CV duty determination on aluminum extrusions from China to reflect that the Court of International Trade has affirmed the ITA’s revision of the “all others” rate from 7.42 percent to 7.37 percent. This will be the new CV cash deposit rate for companies subject to the “all others” rate.”
