Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Tapered Roller Bearings. The International Trade Administration has made a final affirmative dumping determination on tapered roller bearings from Korea. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to continue to collect AD cash deposits at the final weighted average dumping margins, which range from 8.21 percent to 52.44 percent.

Low Melt Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has made final affirmative dumping determinations on low melt PSF from Korea and Taiwan. The ITA will instruct CBP to continue to collect AD cash deposits at the final weighted average dumping margins, which are zero or 16.27 percent for Korea and 49.93 percent for Taiwan.

In addition, the ITA has found that critical circumstances exist with respect to Toray Chemical Korea Inc. and will instruct CBP to impose provisional measures retroactively on entries of subject goods from this company effective 90 days prior to publication of the preliminary determination in the Federal Register.

Steel Sheet. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on tin- and chromium-coated steel sheet from Japan, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place.

Steel Racks. A petition filed June 20 alleges that steel racks and parts thereof from China, whether assembled or unassembled, are being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. market and benefiting from countervailable subsidies. The alleged average dumping margins are 131.1 percent to 145.7 percent.
