Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

PET Film. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip from the United Arab Emirates for the period Nov. 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, with respect to two companies based on the petitioners’ timely withdrawal of their request for review.

Silicon Metal. The ITA has postponed from June 1 to Aug. 7 its preliminary countervailing duty determinations on silicon metal from Australia, Brazil, and Kazakhstan.

Wire Hangers. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative and new shipper reviews of the AD duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China for the period Oct. 1, 2011, through Sept. 30, 2012, to specify a revised dumping margin of 40.39 percent for subject goods produced and exported by Hangzhou Yingqing Material Co. Ltd. If the court decision is not appealed or is 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 the revised margin. In addition, the ITA will instruct CBP that the new cash deposit rate for subject goods from this company is 40.39 percent, effective May 1, 2017.
