Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Cylinders. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on high-pressure steel cylinders from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on all appropriate entries at the CV cash deposit rates in effect at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Citric Acid. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts from Canada for the period May 1, 2013, through April 30, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for entries of subject goods produced and/or exported by Jungbunzlauer Canada Inc. No AD duties will be assessed on entries of such goods during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for such goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 15.

Glycine. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on glycine from China for the period March 1, 2013, through Feb. 28, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 143.87 percent for exporter Baoding Mantong Fine Chemistry Co. Ltd. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on subject goods entered during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 15. The ITA has also rescinded this review with respect to Evonik.

Pipes and Tubes. The ITA has postponed from Oct. 14 to Dec. 18 its preliminary CV duty determination on heavy-walled rectangular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Turkey, stating that this case is extraordinarily complicated.

Narrow Woven Ribbons. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge from China for the period Sept. 1, 2013, through Aug. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined that Yama Ribbons Co. Ltd. had no reviewable transactions of subject goods during this period. The ITA will instruct CBP to liquidate any entries of subject goods that entered under Yama Ribbons’ rate at the China-wide rate of 247.65 percent. In addition, exports by Yama Ribbons of subject goods it did not produce will be subject to cash deposits at the China-wide rate for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 15.

Purified Carboxymethylcellulose. The ITA has revoked the AD duty order on purified carboxymethylcellulose from the Netherlands, effective July 1, 2014, following a changed circumstances review in which it determined that the sole domestic producer of this product has no further interest in the continuation of this order. The ITA will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation of subject goods that were entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after July 1, 2014, and to release any cash deposit or bond on all unliquidated entries of the goods covered by the revocation that are not covered by the final results of an administrative review or automatic liquidation.

Silicomanganese. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on silicomanganese from Venezuela for the period May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015, due to the withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Sugar. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting Oct. 20 to vote on its final AD and CV injury determinations on sugar from Mexico.

Steel Grating. The ITC will hold an open meeting Oct. 20 to vote in its administrative reviews of the AD and CV duty orders on steel grating from China. This vote will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.
