Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Magnesia Carbon Bricks. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting Jan. 5, 2016, in Washington, D.C., to hold a vote in its sunset reviews of the antidumping and/or countervailing duty orders on magnesia carbon bricks from China and Mexico.

Pasta. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on pasta from Italy for the period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015, with respect to six companies due to the timely withdrawal of the requests for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyester staple fiber from China for the period June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, after the petitioner withdrew its requests for review for all five companies. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Corrosion-Resistant Steel. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on corrosion-resistant steel products from China, India, Italy and Korea. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary dumping margins, which are 255.80 percent for China, 6.64 percent to 6.92 percent for India, zero to 3.11 percent for Italy, and 2.99 percent to 3.51 percent for Korea. The ITA also found that critical circumstances exist with respect to certain exporters from China and Korea and will therefore instruct CBP to impose provisional measures retroactively on entries of such goods up to 90 days prior to the date the preliminary determinations are published in the Federal Register (which is expected within the next few days).

The ITA has made a preliminary negative dumping determination on corrosion-resistant steel from Taiwan. As a result, no provisional measures will be collected on such goods.
