Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Activated Carbon. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on activated carbon from China for the period April 1, 2013, through March 31, 2014, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero to $1.05/kg. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Oct. 9. The ITA notes that it did not conduct a review of the China-wide entity and that the AD duty rate for this entity is not subject to change as a result of this review.

Off-Road Tires. In its administrative review of the AD duty order on new pneumatic off-the-road tires from China for the period Sept. 1, 2013, through Aug. 31, 2014, the ITA has preliminarily determined weighted average dumping margins of 86.78 percent to 99.36 percent. The ITA notes that the China-wide entity is not under review and its AD duty rate of 105.31 percent is therefore not subject to change.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture. The ITA intends to revoke the AD duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from China with respect to certain bed bases after having preliminarily determined that the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product lack interest in the relief provided by this order with respect to such items. These items consist of a wooden box frame, three wooden cross beams and one perpendicular center wooden support beam, and wooden slats over the beams. They are constructed without inner springs and/or coils and do not include a headboard, footboard, side rails or mattress. Comments are due no later than Oct. 23.

PET Resin. The ITA has preliminarily determined that polyethylene terephthalate resin from Canada, China, India and Oman is being dumped in the U.S. at margins of 13.29 percent, 125.12 percent to 145.94 percent, 6.31 percent to 19.41 percent, and 6.62 percent respectively. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits based on these rates, adjusted for export subsidies as appropriate.
