Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Aircraft. The International Trade Administration has made an affirmative preliminary dumping determination on 100- to 150-seat large civil aircraft from Canada even though such aircraft have not yet been imported into the U.S. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on subject goods at the preliminary dumping margin of 79.82 percent, which is based on adverse facts available because the respondent failed to provide requested information. The ITA’s final determination is due by Dec. 19.

Forged Steel Fittings. The International Trade Commission has instituted AD injury investigations of forged steel fittings from China, Italy, and Taiwan and a countervailing injury investigation of such goods from China. The ITC will hold a conference Oct. 26, requests to appear at the conference are due by Oct. 24, written submissions are due by Oct. 31, and the ITC’s preliminary determination is due by Nov. 20.

Bedroom Furniture. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, the ITA has (a) determined that four companies have not established their entitlement to a separate rate, (b) determined that eight companies had no reviewable transactions during the period of review, and (c) rescinded the review with respect to one entity for which all review requests have been withdrawn.

Pipes and Tubes. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Turkey for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined net subsidy rates of 0.49 percent (de minimis) and 6.64 percent. CV duties at the 6.64 percent rate will be assessed on applicable entries of subject goods during the period of review and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from the covered companies that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 12. No CV duty assessments or cash deposits will be required for subject goods from the companies subject to the de minimis rate.

Crawfish Meat. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from China for the period Sept. 1, 2015, through Aug. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero to 3.81 percent for three producers/exporters. 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 Oct. 12.

The ITA has also rescinded a new shipper review of this order after finding that the single sale of subject goods to the U.S. made by Jingzhou Tianhe Aquatic Products Ltd. was not bona fide.
