AD/CV Case Updates: Copper Pipe and Tube, Cut-to-Length Plate
Copper Pipe and Tube. Effective April 3, the International Trade Administration has amended the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on seamless refined copper pipe and tube from China for the period Nov. 1, 2012, through Oct. 31, 2013, pursuant to a court decision. The revised weighted average dumping margin for Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group Inc., Hong Kong GD Trading Co. Ltd., and Golden Dragon Holding (Hong Kong) International Ltd. (collectively, Golden Dragon) is 6.09 percent.
If the court decision is not appealed or is upheld on appeal the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on unliquidated entries of subject goods made during this period at the revised rate. However, the cash deposit rate for Golden Dragon will remain zero, as established in a subsequent administrative review.
CTL Plate. The International Trade Commission has issued a supplemental schedule for the final phase of its AD and/or CV injury investigations of carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. The deadline for filing supplemental party comments is April 12, the staff report will be placed in the non-public record on April 24, and a public version of that report will be issued thereafter.
