Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Supercalendered Paper. The International Trade Commission has made a final affirmative countervailing injury determination on supercalendered paper from Canada. As a result, a CV duty order will soon be issued.

Steel Plate. In its sunset review of the antidumping duty order on cut-to-length carbon steel plate from China and the suspended AD investigations of such goods from Russia and Ukraine, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order and termination of these suspended investigations would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order and these suspension agreements will be continued.

Magnesia Carbon Bricks. In the final results of its expedited sunset review of the CV duty order on magnesia carbon bricks from China, the International Trade Administration has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of a net countervailable subsidy at rates from 24.24 percent to 253.87 percent. As a result, this order will be continued for five years.

Woven Ribbons. In the final results of an expedited sunset review of the CV duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of a net countervailable subsidy at rates from 1.56 percent to 117.95 percent. As a result, this order will be continued for five years.

Fresh Garlic. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China for the period Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014, the ITA has preliminarily determined a weighted-average dumping margin of 2.72 percent for 14 exporters and a China-wide rate of 4.71 percent.

The ITA intends to rescind this review for (a) 81 of the 161 companies for which this review was initiated because withdrawal requests were timely filed timely and (b) Jinxiang Kaihua Imp & Exp Co. Ltd. because this company’s sale of subject goods was not bona fide. Additionally, the ITA preliminarily finds that Hebei Golden Bird Trading Co. Ltd. and Qingdao Tiantaixing Foods Co. Ltd. are part of the China-wide entity and that ten companies had no reviewable transactions during the period of review

Copper Pipe and Tube. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on seamless refined copper pipe and tube from China for the period Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted-average dumping margin of 5.89 percent for all Golden Dragon Group Companies. The ITA is also rescinding this review with respect to 13 companies for which withdrawal requests were timely filed.

Carbon Steel Plate. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on cut-to-length carbon steel plate from China for the period Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined that five of the six companies under review did not demonstrate their eligibility for separate rate status and are thus part of the China-wide entity. As a result, AD duties at the China-wide rate of 128.59 percent will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these five companies during the period of review and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for such goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 7. The ITA also determined that Wuyang Iron and Steel Co. Ltd. made no shipments of subject goods during the period of review.
