Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Wire Rod. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Mexico for the period Oct. 1, 2013, through Sept. 30, 2014, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of 1.54 percent for Deacero S.A. de C.V. and 2.59 percent for Arcelor Mittal Las Truchas S.A. de C.V. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after May 19.

Cold-Rolled Steel. The ITA has made final affirmative dumping determinations on cold-rolled steel flat products from China and Japan and a final affirmative subsidy determination on such goods from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD and CV cash deposits at the following rates: China (AD) – 265.79 percent (China-wide); China (CV) – 256.44 percent for all exporters/producers; Japan (AD) – 71.35 percent for all exporters/producers.

The ITA determined that critical circumstances exist with respect to certain exporters from China and Japan. For those companies the ITA will instruct CBP to retroactively impose provisional measures on entries of subject goods effective 90 days prior to publication of the preliminary determinations in the Federal Register.  

Cooking Ware. The International Trade Commission has scheduled an expedited sunset review of the AD duty order on porcelain-on-steel cooking ware from China, which will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order. Written comments are due by June 7.

Alloy Magnesium. The ITC has scheduled an expedited sunset review of the AD duty order on alloy magnesium from China, which will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order. Comments are due by June 7.

Ironing Tables. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on floor-standing, metal-top ironing tables and certain parts thereof from China for the period Aug. 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010, to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 33.43 percent for Foshan Shunde Yongjian Housewares & Hardwares Co. Ltd. If this rate is upheld, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods during the period of review using this rate. However, Foshan Shunde’s AD cash deposit rate will remain 157.68 percent, the rate established in a more recent review.
