Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

PTFE Resin. The International Trade Administration has made a final affirmative countervailing duty determination on polytetrafluoroethylene resin from India. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require CV cash deposits at the final net subsidy rate of 3.60 percent. If the International Trade Commission’s final CV injury determination (due by July 9) is affirmative, the ITA will issue a CV duty order on this product.

Silicon Metal. In its sunset review of the antidumping duty order on silicon metal from China, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place.

Steel Threaded Rod. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel threaded rod from China for the period April 1, 2016, through March 31, 2017, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 206.0 percent for Fastenal Canada. The ITA has also rescinded this review with respect to all companies except four.

Garlic. The ITA has preliminarily rescinded its new shipper review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China for the period Nov. 1, 2016, through April 30, 2017, with respect to Qingdao Doo Won Foods Co. Ltd. because it is not the producer of the garlic it exported to the U.S.

Magnesium Metal. The ITA has made a final determination that Tianjin Magnesium International Co. Ltd. and Tianjin Magnesium Metal Co. Ltd. had no shipments of goods covered by the AD duty order on magnesium metal from China for the period April 1, 2016, through March 31, 2017.

Wind Towers. In the final results of its sunset review of the CV duty order on utility scale wind towers from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy at rates of 21.86 percent to 34.81 percent.
