Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Pressure Pipe. A petition filed Sept. 30 alleges that imports of circular welded austenitic stainless pressure pipe not greater than 14 inches in outside diameter from India are being sold at less than fair value and benefit from countervailable subsidies. The alleged dumping margin is 27.39 percent.

The pressure pipe covered by this petition is of circular cross‐section, produced in relatively few standard sizes, designated by nominal diameter and wall thickness, and designed for use with standard pipe fittings. Pressure pipe is used to convey fluids at high temperatures, high pressures or both and is thus is used by industries such as petrochemicals, manufacturing, chemical fluid handling and water treatment. The subject goods are normally classified under HTSUS subheadings 7306.40.5005, 7306.40.5040, 7306.40.5062, 7306.40.5064 and 7306.40.5085. They may also enter under HTSUS subheadings 7306.40.1010, 7306.40.1015, 7306.40.5042, 7306.40.5044, 7306.40.5080 and 7306.40.5090.

Tissue Paper Products. In the final results of its expedited sunset review of the AD duty order on tissue paper products from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at weighted average margins up to 112.64 percent.

Pipes and Tubes. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Thailand for the period March 1, 2013, through Feb. 28, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for producer/exporters Saha Thai Steel Pipe (Public) Company Ltd. and Pacific Pipe Company Limited. As a result, no AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these companies during the period of review, and no cash deposits will be required for subject goods from these companies that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 2.

Citric Acid and Citrate Salts. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the CV duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, due to the petitioners’ withdrawal of their requests for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the CV cash deposit rates in effect at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Stainless Steel Wire Rod. In the final results of its expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel wire rod from Italy, Japan, South Korea, Spain and Taiwan, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at weighted average margins of 11.25 percent for Italy, 33.58 percent for Japan, 28.44 percent for South Korea, 2.71 percent for Spain and 2.22 percent for Taiwan.
