Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Polyester Staple Fiber. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyester staple fiber from Korea for the period May 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016, based on the petitioners’ timely withdrawal of their requests for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods during this period at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Woven Ribbons. The ITA is continuing the AD duty orders on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge from China and Taiwan and the countervailing duty order on such ribbons from China for five years, effective Sept. 22.

The goods covered by the scope of these orders are narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge in any length but with a width (measured at the narrowest span of the ribbon) less than or equal to 12 centimeters, composed of, in whole or in part, manmade fibers (whether artificial or synthetic, including nylon, polyester, rayon, polypropylene, and polyethylene terephthalate), metal threads and/or metalized yarns, or any combination thereof. Subject ribbons are classifiable under HTSUS numbers 5806.32.1020, 5806.32.1030, 5806.32.1050, and 5806.32.1060 and may also enter under subheadings 5806.31.00, 5806.32.1080, 5806.32.20, 5806.39.20, 5806.39.30, 5808.90.00, 5810.91.00, 5810.92.9080, 5810.99.90, 5903.90.10, 5903.90.25, 5903.90.3090, 5907.00.60, 5907.00.80, and 6307.90.9889.

Subject ribbons include all narrow woven fabrics, tapes, and labels that fall within the written description of the scope of the orders.

Cut-to-Length Steel Plate. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey. The ITA will instruct CBP to collect AD cash deposits at the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 74.52 percent for Brazil, 87.72 percent to 94.14 percent for South Africa, and 42.02 percent to 50.0 percent for Turkey.
