Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Silica Fabric. The International Trade Administration has postponed from July 5 to Aug. 24 its preliminary antidumping duty determination on amorphous silica fabric from China. The petitioner requested the delay to allow the ITA sufficient time to conduct a complete and thorough analysis and to address the various deficiencies in the questionnaire responses.

Steel Pipe. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Korea for the period Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero for SeAH Steel Corporation, 1.42 percent for Husteel Co. Ltd. and 1.62 percent for Hyundai HYSCO. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 20.

Solar Cells. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China for the period Dec. 1, 2013, through Nov. 30, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 6.12 percent to 12.19 percent. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 20.

The ITA has also determined that Jiangsu Sunlink PV Technology Co. Ltd. and Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co. Ltd. each had no shipments of subject goods during the period of review.

Fresh Garlic. In the final 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 determined weighted average dumping margins of $2.75/kg to $4.71/kg. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 20.

The ITA has rescinded this review with respect to Jinxiang Kaihua Imp & Exp Co. Ltd. because its sales of subject goods were found not to be bona fide in a concurrent new shipper review.

Copper Pipe and Tube. In the final 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 zero for the mandatory respondent and eight affiliated producers. No AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these companies during the period of review and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 20.
