Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Flat Products. The International Trade Administration has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on hot-rolled steel flat products from Australia, Brazil, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Turkey and the United Kingdom. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary dumping margins of 23.25 percent for Australia, 33.91 percent to 34.28 percent for Brazil, 6.79 percent to 11.29 percent for Japan, 3.97 percent to 7.33 percent for Korea, 5.07 percent for the Netherlands, 5.24 percent to 7.07 percent for Turkey, and 49.05 percent for the United Kingdom.

The ITA also preliminarily found that critical circumstances exist with respect to certain exporters from Brazil and Japan. As a result, CBP will be instructed to impose provisional measures retroactively on subject goods from these entities up to 90 days prior to publication of the preliminary determination in the Federal Register.

Scope Rulings. The ITA has published a list of scope rulings and anti-circumvention determinations made between July 1 and Sept. 1, 2015, with respect to the AD and/or CV duty orders on the following items.

- circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico

- stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from Japan, Korea and Taiwan

- aluminum extrusions from China

- drawn stainless steel sinks from China

- steel nails from China

- multilayered wood flooring from China

- pure magnesium from China

- polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet and strip from the United Arab Emirates

Plastic Tape. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on pressure sensitive plastic tape from Italy, the International Trade Commission 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 be continued for five years.

Steel Sheet and Strip. The ITC will hold an open meeting March 25 in Washington, D.C., for a preliminary vote in its AD and CV injury investigations of stainless steel sheet and strip from China.
