Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Calcium Hypochlorite. The International Trade Administration intends to rescind its new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on calcium hypochlorite from China because it has not been provided sufficient information to determine whether Haixing Jingmei Chemical Products Sales Co. Ltd.’s new shipper sales are bona fide and thus provide a reasonable or reliable basis for calculating a dumping margin.

Steel Wire Rod. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Mexico for the period Oct. 1, 2013, through Sept. 30, 2014. The revised weighted average dumping margin for Deacero S.A.P.I. de C.V. and Deacero USA Inc. is 1.13 percent. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 27.

Stainless Steel. In its countervailing duty investigation of stainless steel sheet and strip from China, the ITA has preliminarily determined that critical circumstances exist for subject goods shipped by all exporters or producers. As a result, if the ITA’s preliminary CV duty determination is affirmative the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of all entries of subject goods that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after the date that is 90 days prior to the date that preliminary determination is published in the Federal Register.

Corrosion-Resistant Steel. The International Trade Commission has made final affirmative AD injury determinations on corrosion-resistant steel products from China, India, Italy, Korea and Taiwan and final affirmative CV injury determinations on such goods from China, India, Italy and Korea. As a result, the ITA will soon issue AD and/or CV duty orders on these goods.

The ITC also made negative critical circumstances findings with regards to imports from China, Italy, Korea and Taiwan. As a result, goods that entered from China, Italy and Korea prior to Nov. 6, 2015, will not be subject to retroactive CV duties and goods that entered from China, Italy, Korea and Taiwan prior to Jan. 4, 2016, will not be subject to retroactive AD duties.
