Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

MSG. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on monosodium glutamate from Indonesia for the period May 8, 2014, through Oct. 31, 2015, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for manufacturer/exporter PT Cheil Jedang Indonesia. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate all appropriate entries without regard to AD duties, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods from this company that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 22.

Rubber. The ITA has made an affirmative preliminary dumping determination on emulsion styrene-butadiene rubber from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Poland. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to begin collecting AD cash deposits at the preliminary dumping margins, which are 34.44 percent for Brazil, 11.63 percent to 44.30 percent for Korea, 13.77 percent for Mexico, and 25.43 percent for Poland.

In addition, the ITA preliminarily determined that critical circumstances exist with respect to certain exporters from Korea. Consequently, CBP will be instructed to impose provisional measures retroactively on entries of ESB rubber from Korea, effective 90 days prior to publication of the preliminary determination in the Federal Register, for affected exporters.
