Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Ammonium Sulfate. The International Trade Administration has made an affirmative preliminary dumping determination on ammonium sulfate from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods based on the preliminary weighted average dumping margin of 493.46 percent.

The International Trade Commission has scheduled the final phase of its antidumping and countervailing injury investigations of ammonium sulfate from China. A hearing will be held Jan. 12, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Jan. 10, pre-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 5, post-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 19, and final comments are due by Feb. 3.

Rebar. The ITC has made preliminary affirmative AD injury determinations on steel concrete reinforcing bar from Japan, Taiwan, and Turkey and a preliminary affirmative CV injury determination on such rebar from Turkey. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD/CV duty investigations, with final determinations due on or about Dec. 14 (CV) and Feb. 27 (AD).

Uncoated Paper. The ITA has initiated an inquiry to determine whether uncoated paper with a GE brightness of 83 +/- 1 percent is altered in form or appearance in minor respects from in-scope goods such that it may be considered subject to the AD and CV duty orders on uncoated paper from Australia, Brazil, China, Indonesia, and Portugal.

Steel Plate. In its expedited sunset review of the CV duty order on stainless steel plate in coils from South Africa, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would likely lead to the continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy at rates of 3.95 percent.

Steel Sheet and Strip. In its expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and the CV duty order on such goods from Korea, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of (a) dumping at margins of 57.89 percent for Japan, 58.79 percent for Korea, and 21.10 percent for Taiwan and (b) a countervailable subsidy at rates of 0.54 percent to 4.64 percent.

Uncovered Innerspring Units. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on uncovered innerspring units from China for the period Feb. 1, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 234.51 percent for Enchant Privilege Sdn Bhd.
