AD/CV Notices: Steel Nails, Solar Cells, Wood Flooring

Steel Nails. The International Trade Administration has issued a countervailing duty order on steel nails from Vietnam, effective July 14. As a result, the ITA will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on unliquidated entries of nails from Vietnam entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 3, 2014, and before March 3, 2015. The ITA will also direct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of nails from Vietnam  effective as of the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative CV injury determination in the Federal Register and to assess CV duties for each entry of subject goods in an amount based on the net countervailable subsidy rates, which range from 288.56 percent to 313.97 percent.

Solar Cells. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China for the period May 25, 2012, through Nov. 30, 2013, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 0.79 percent through 238.95 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 14.

In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on such goods from China for the period Jan. 1, through Dec. 31, 2012, the ITA has determined net countervailable subsidies of 15.43 percent to 23.28 percent. CV duties at these rates will be assessed on subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 26, 2012, through Dec. 31, 2012, and CV cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 14.

Wood Flooring. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2012, the ITA has determined a net countervailable subsidy rate of 0.99 percent for dozens of companies. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposit requirements at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 14.
