Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Magnesia Carbon Bricks. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on magnesia carbon bricks from Mexico for the period Sept. 1, 2016, through Aug. 31, 2017, due to the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all entries of subject goods during this period at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Steel Bar. In its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from India for the period Feb. 1, 2016, through Jan. 31, 2017, the ITA has made a final determination that Ambica Steels Limited and Bhansali Bright Bars Pvt. Ltd. had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period. The AD cash deposit rates for these two companies will remain unchanged.

Steel Pipe. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on seamless carbon and alloy steel standard, line, and pressure pipe from Germany, the International Trade Commission 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.

Hot-Rolled Steel. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on hot-rolled steel products from Brazil for the period Jan. 15 through Dec. 31, 2016, due to the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess CV duties on entries of subject goods during this period at the CV cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Thermal Paper. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on lightweight thermal paper from China for the period Nov. 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined that all of the companies under review failed to establish eligibility for separate rate status and are therefore subject to the China-wide rate, which is currently 115.29 percent.
