Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Sodium Gluconate. The International Trade Commission has initiated AD injury investigations of sodium gluconate, gluconic acid, and derivative products classified under HTSUS 2918.16.10, 2918.16.50, and 2932.20.50 from China and France, as well as a CV injury investigation of subject merchandise from China. Return questionnaires are due by Dec. 14, a conference will be held Dec. 21, post-conference briefs may be submitted by Dec. 27, and the ITC’s preliminary determination vote has been scheduled for Jan. 12.

Steel Pipe. In the preliminary results of its administrative reviews of the AD duty orders on certain circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Korea and Mexico for the period Nov 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins ranging from 8.18 percent to 38.16 percent for five Korean companies and 73.70 percent for five Mexican companies, and that five other Mexican companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.

Diamond Sawblades. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China for the period Nov 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 82.05 percent for 20 companies and that nine companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.

Rebar. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel concrete reinforcing bar from Mexico for the period Nov 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for nine companies and that two companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review. If these results are finalized, CBP will not assess AD duties or require cash deposits on subject entries.

In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on steel concrete reinforcing bar from Turkey for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined subsidy rates of 0.02 percent, 0.18 percent, or 1.25 percent for 13 companies. In addition, the ITA intends to rescind the review with respect to Agir Haddecilik A.S. because there is no evidence that company had any shipments of subject merchandise to the U.S. during the period of review.

Small Diameter Pipe. The ITA has determined that revocation of the AD duty order on certain small diameter seamless carbon and alloy standard, line, and pressure pipe from Germany would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The ITC will proceed with its own investigation to determine whether revocation would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. The order will be extended for an additional five years if the ITC issues an affirmative determination but will be rescinded if the ITC issues a negative determination.
