Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Fittings. The ITC has made preliminary affirmative antidumping injury determinations in its AD investigations of forged steel fittings from China, Italy, and Taiwan, as well as a preliminary affirmative countervailing injury determination in its CV probe of subject merchandise from China.

Steel Pipes and Tubes. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan for the period May 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 1.78 percent for Shin Yang Steel Co. Ltd. AD duties based on 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 20.

Copper Pipe and Tube. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on seamless refined copper pipe and tube from China for the period Nov. 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined that the five remaining companies under review failed to establish their eligibility for a separate rate and are therefore part of the China-wide entity, which has received a weighted average dumping margin of 60.85 percent.

Tissue Paper Products. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on certain tissue paper products from China for the period March 1, 2016, through Feb. 28, 2017, the ITA has determined that (1) Global Key Inc. is not eligible for a separate rate and is therefore part of the China-wide entity, and (2) Chung Rhy Special Paper Mill Co. Ltd. had no shipments of subject merchandise during the period of review.

Steel Nails. In accordance with a Court of International Trade decision, the ITA has amended its final affirmative dumping determination on steel nails from Taiwan to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 2.16 percent for all producers and exporters. The ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits at this rate as of Oct. 14, 2017.

Softwood Lumber. A NAFTA binational panel has been requested to review the ITA’s final affirmative CV determination on certain softwood lumber products from Canada.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has postponed its preliminary AD duty determinations on low melt polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan from Dec. 4 to Jan. 23 because it is still gathering data and questionnaire responses.

Roller Bearings. The ITA has postponed at the request of the petitioner its preliminary AD duty determination on certain tapered roller bearings from Korea from Dec. 5 to Jan. 24.
