Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Plate. The International Trade Administration is soliciting through Oct. 26 comments on a request to terminate a 2003 agreement suspending its antidumping duty investigation of cut-to-length carbon steel plate from Russia. Domestic interested parties have argued that this agreement is no longer in the public interest because the lone Russian signatory producer may have violated it.

Fresh Garlic. In its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China, the ITA has determined that Jinxiang Country Shanfu Frozen Co. Ltd. is not the successor-in-interest to the garlic supplier of Jining Yongjia Trade Co. Ltd. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue suspension of liquidation and collected estimated AD duties for all shipments of subject goods produced by Shanfu and exported by Yongjia at the $4.71/kg China-wide AD cash deposit rate.

Multilayered Wood Flooring. In its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China, the ITA has preliminarily determined that Sino-Maple (JiangSu) Co. Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Jiafeng Wood (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. and therefore entitled to its AD cash deposit rate, which is currently 13.74 percent. Comments are due by Oct. 26.

Uncoated Paper. The International Trade Commission has scheduled the final phase of its AD and CV injury investigations of uncoated paper from Australia, Brazil, China, Indonesia and Portugal. A hearing will be held Jan. 7, 2016, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Dec. 31, pre-hearing briefs are due by Dec. 23, post-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 14, and final comments are due by Feb. 4.

Plastic Tape. The ITC has scheduled a full sunset review of the AD duty order on pressure-sensitive plastic tape from Italy. This review will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order. A hearing will be held Feb. 2, 2016, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Jan. 25, pre-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 22, post-hearing briefs are due by Feb. 10, and final comments are due by March 8.
