Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Biodiesel. The International Trade Administration has issued antidumping duty orders on biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia. AD duties will be assessed (at rates of 60.44 percent to 86.41 percent for Argentina and 92.52 percent to 276.65 percent for Indonesia) on unliquidated entries of subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 31, 2017, and AD cash deposits will continue to be required.

Biodiesel is a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, including biologically-based waste oils or greases, and other biologically-based oil or fat sources. These orders cover biodiesel in pure form (B100) as well as fuel mixtures containing at least 99 percent biodiesel by volume (B99). For fuel mixtures containing less than 99 percent biodiesel by volume, only the biodiesel component of the mixture is covered by these orders. B100 is currently classifiable under HTSUS 3826.00.1000 while B99 is currently classifiable under HTSUS 3826.00.3000.

Honey. The ITA is continuing its AD duty order on honey from China for five years, effective April 26. As a result, CBP will continue to collect AD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject goods.

Large Residential Washers. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on large residential washers from Korea, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at weighted average dumping margins up to 82.41 percent.

Hangers. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China for the period Oct. 1, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2017, with respect to 17 companies due to the petitioner’s withdrawal of its request for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods from these companies at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
