Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Welded Line Pipe. The International Trade Administration has made affirmative final antidumping duty determinations on welded line pipe from Korea and Turkey, an affirmative final countervailing duty determination on such goods from Turkey and a negative final CV duty determination on such goods from Korea. Dumping margins are 2.53 percent to 6.19 percent for Korea and 6.66 percent to 22.95 percent for Turkey. Countervailable subsidies for Turkey range from 1.31 percent to 152.2 percent.

The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits at the applicable margins. If the International Trade Commission issues a final affirmative CV injury determination with respect to Turkey, the ITA will order a resumption of the suspension of liquidation, require CV cash deposits at the final subsidy rates for the mandatory respondents and all other producers and exporters not selected for investigation, and adjust the Turkey AD cash deposit rates by the amount of the export subsidies, as appropriate.

Barium Chloride. The ITC will hold an open meeting Oct. 14 to vote in its sunset review of the AD duty order on barium chloride from China. If this vote is affirmative the order will be continued for five years; otherwise, it will be revoked.

Violet Pigment. The ITC will hold an open meeting Oct. 14 to vote in its sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on carbazole violet pigment 23 from China and India and the CV duty order on such goods from China. If this vote is affirmative these orders will be continued for five years; otherwise, they will be revoked.

Cold-Rolled Steel. The ITA has postponed from Oct. 21 to Dec. 15 its preliminary CV duty determinations on cold-rolled steel flat products from Brazil, China, India, Korea and Russia.

Preserved Mushrooms. The ITA has initiated a new shipper review of the AD duty order on preserved mushrooms from China for subject goods produced by Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable Co. Ltd. and exported by Linyi Yuqiao International Trade Co. Ltd. This review will determine whether such goods are entitled to an individual AD duty rate. During this review CBP will allow, at the option of the importer, the posting of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for each entry of subject goods exported by Yuqiao and produced by Kangfa.

Fresh Garlic. The ITA has rescinded its new shipper review of Jinxiang Kaihua Imp and Exp Co. Ltd. regarding the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China because this company’s sale of subject goods was not bona fide. As a result, AD duties at the China-wide rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods from Kaihua, and cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from Kaihua that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 8 (i.e., the option of posting a bond or security will be discontinued as of that date).

Wind Towers. The ITA has rescinded its administrative reviews of the AD duty orders on utility scale wind towers from China and Vietnam for the period Feb. 1, 2014, through Jan. 31, 2015, based on the withdrawal of the requests for review. AD duties on subject goods entered during this period will be assessed at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
