AD/CV: Steel Wheels, Woven Sacks, Shrimp, Pasta, Nails, Paper, Monosodium Glutamate
Steel Wheels. A petition filed Aug. 7 alleges that steel wheels from China are being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. market and benefiting from countervailable subsidies. Goods covered by this petition are currently classified under HTSUS 8716.90.5035 and may also enter under HTSUS 8716.90.5059. The alleged average dumping margins are 29.27 percent to 49.89 percent.
The Department of Commerce and the International Trade Commission will next determine whether to launch antidumping and countervailing duty and injury investigations, respectively, on this product. There are strict statutory deadlines associated with these proceedings, so affected companies that wish to protect their interests should contact trade counsel as soon as possible.
Woven Sacks. The International Trade Administration has made a preliminary affirmative determination in its countervailing duty investigation of laminated woven sacks from Vietnam. The ITA will instruct CBP to collect CV cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary subsidy rates, which range from 3.24 percent to 6.15 percent.

The ITA has rescinded its antidumping administrative review of certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam exported by Soc Trang Seafood Joint Stock Company and Seavina Joint Stock Company during the period Feb. 1, 2017, through Jan. 31, 2018, because the petitioners timely withdrew their review requests. The review will continue with respect to various other companies.
Pasta.
