Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Supercalendered Paper. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting Nov. 18 to vote on its final countervailing injury determination on supercalendered paper from Canada. If this vote is affirmative, a CV duty order will be issued.

Potassium Sulfate Salts. The ITC will hold an open meeting Nov. 18 to vote in its sunset review of the AD and CV duty orders on potassium sulfate salts from China. This vote will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.

Hydrofluorocarbon Blends. The International Trade Administration has postponed from Dec. 2 to Jan. 21 its preliminary dumping determination on hydrofluorocarbon blends and components thereof from China.

Multilayered Wood Flooring. In the final results of its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China, the ITA has determined that Sino-Maple (JiangSu) Co. Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Jiafeng Wood (Suzhou) Co. Ltd. and is thus entitled to Jiafeng’s AD cash deposit rate, which is currently 13.74 percent. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect estimated AD duties at this rate for all shipments of subject goods exported by Sino-Maple and entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 16.

PET Film. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from China for the period Nov. 1, 2013, through Oct. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined that Shaoxing Xiangyu Green Packing Co. Ltd. is part of the China-wide entity. As a result, the ITA intends to instruct CBP to liquidate entries of subject goods from Green Packing at the China-wide rate of 76.72 percent. In addition, AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from Green Packing that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 16.

Steel Pipe. The ITA has amended its final dumping determination on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from China, pursuant to a decision by the Court of International Trade, to specify revised AD cash deposit rates of 69.2 percent for 30 exporter/producer combinations and 85.55 percent for the China-wide entity. Unless the applicable cash deposit rates have been superseded in an intervening administrative review, the ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits at the rates noted above for subject goods that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 2.

Pressure Pipe. The ITC has made preliminary affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on welded stainless steel pressure pipe from India. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD and CV duty investigations, with its preliminary determinations due on or about Dec. 24 (CV) and March 8 (AD).
