Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Tetrafluoroethane. The International Trade Administration has initiated an antidumping duty investigation of 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane from China. The alleged dumping margins are from 153.68 percent to 220.87 percent.

The product covered by this investigation is 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane, which is also known as R-134a, or its chemical equivalent, regardless of form, type or purity level. Subject imports are normally classified under HTSUS subheading 2903.39.2020.

PET Resin. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting March 31 to vote on its final AD and countervailing injury determinations on polyethylene terephthalate resin from Canada, China, India and Oman.

Fish Fillets. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam for the period Aug 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of $0.41/kg to $0.97/kg. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 29.

The ITA also determined that more than a dozen companies had no reviewable transactions during the POR. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate any suspended entries of subject goods that entered under these companies’ case numbers during the POR at the Vietnam-wide rate of $2.39/kg.

Finally, the ITA has rescinded this review with respect to NTACO Corporation and Nam Phuong Seafood Co. Ltd.
