Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Boltless Steel Shelving Units. The International Trade Administration has made a preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determination on boltless steel shelving units prepackaged for sale from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require CV cash deposits based on the preliminary rates, which are as follows: 14.53 percent for Nanjing Topsun Racking Manufacturing Co. Ltd., 12.21 percent for Ningbo ETDZ Huixing Trade Co. Ltd., 55.75 percent for 14 companies that did not respond to the quantity and value questionnaire, and 13.37 percent for all other producers/exporters in China.

Brass Sheet and Strip. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on brass sheet and strip from Japan for the period Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Pasta. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on pasta from Italy for the period July 1, 2013, through June 30, 2014, with respect to Dalla Costa Alimentare SRL and Pasta Lensi S.r.L., which withdrew their requests for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise from these two companies at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has issued the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyester staple fiber from China. The weighted average dumping margin for exporter Takayasu Industrial (Jiangyin) Co. Ltd. is 42.36 percent. AD duties based on this margin will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 27.

Chlorinated Isocyanurates. The ITA has issued the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from China for the period June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013. Weighted average dumping margins are zero for exporters Hebei Jiheng Chemical Co. Ltd. and Juancheng Kangtai Chemical Co. Ltd. and 53.15 percent for Arch Chemicals (China) Co. Ltd., Heze Huayi Chemical Co. Ltd. and Zhucheng Taisheng Chemical Co. Ltd. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 27.

Frozen Fish Fillets. The ITA intends to rescind its new shipper review of the AD duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam covering Nam Phuong Seafood Co. Ltd. and NTACO Corporation. The ITA has preliminarily determined that these companies’ sales of subject merchandise to the U.S. were not bona fide. Interested parties may comment on this determination no later than Feb. 26.

Laminated Woven Sacks. The ITA has issued the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on laminated woven sacks from China for the period Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014. Because none of the nine companies initiated for review provided the ITA with either a “no shipment” certification or separate rate eligibility documentation, it has preliminarily found these nine companies to be part of the China-wide entity, which is currently subject to a 47.64 percent AD duty rate. Interested parties may comment on these preliminary results no later than Feb. 26.

Tow-Behind Lawn Groomers. The International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of the AD duty order on tow-behind lawn groomers from China 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 will be continued for five years.
