Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Silicomanganese. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on silicomanganese from Ukraine for the period Aug. 1, 2015, through July 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 163.0 percent for two exporter/producers. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Aug. 9.

Garment Hangers. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China for the period Oct. 1, 2015, through Sept. 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 5.02 percent for exporter Shanghai Wells Hanger Co. Ltd. and Hong Kong Wells Ltd. The ITA has also preliminarily determined that Hanzhou Yingqing Material Co. Ltd. and Hangzhou Qingqing Mechanical Co. Ltd. are not eligible for a separate rate and are therefore part of the China-wide entity.

Olives. The International Trade Commission has made preliminary affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on ripe olives from Spain.

Steel Plate. The ITC has scheduled full sunset reviews of the AD and CV duty orders on cut-to-length carbon steel plate from India, Indonesia, and Korea. These reviews will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.

Nails. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel nails from China for the period Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014, to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 11.95 percent for SDC International Aust. PTY. Ltd. If the court decision is not appealed or upheld on appeal, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on unliquidated entries of subject goods based on this revised margin. In addition, effective July 13, 2017, the AD cash deposit rate for SDC is 11.95.
