Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Diamond Sawblades. The International Trade Administration has reinstated the antidumping duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China with respect to Advanced Technology and Materials Co. Ltd., effective March 22, 2013. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require AD cash deposits on subject goods from this company at the China-wide rate of 82.05 percent, effective as of Dec. 1, 2015.

Furfuryl Alcohol. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on furfuryl alcohol from China for the period June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 45.27 percent for Qingdao WenKem Co. Ltd. as part of the China-wide entity. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 8.

Plastic Bags. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from Thailand for the period Aug. 1, 2014, through July 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 122.88 for producer/exporter K. International Packaging Co. Ltd. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review that were produced and/or exported by this company, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from this company that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 8.

Magnesium Metal. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on magnesium metal from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins up to 141.49 percent. If the International Trade Commission also makes an affirmative sunset review determination this order will be continued for five years; otherwise, it will be revoked.

Cooking Ware. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on porcelain-on-steel cooking ware from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins up to 66.65 percent. If the ITC also makes an affirmative sunset review determination this order will be continued for five years; otherwise, it will be revoked.

Oil Country Tubular Goods. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended its final affirmative dumping determination on oil country tubular goods from Turkey to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 13.59 percent for Çayirova Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.Ş. and Yücel Boru Ithalat-Ihracat ve Pazarlama A.Ş. The ITA will continue the suspension of liquidation of entries of subject goods pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision. The ITA will also instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits at this rate for entries of subject goods produced and/or exported by this company effective May 20, 2016.
