Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Corrosion-Resistant Steel. The International Trade Administration has made preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determinations on corrosion-resistant steel products from China, India, Italy and Korea. Preliminary net subsidy rates are 26.26 percent to 235.66 percent for China, 2.85 percent to 7.71 percent for India, 0.04 percent (de minimis) to 38.41 percent for Italy, and 0.69 percent (de minimis) to 1.37 percent for Korea. The ITA will now instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require cash deposits for entries of subject goods based on these preliminary rates.

The ITA has also made a preliminary negative CV duty determination on corrosion-resistant steel products from Taiwan.

Mushrooms. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on preserved mushrooms from China for the period Feb. 1, 2014, through Jan. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined that Linyi City Kangfa Foodstuff Drinkable Co. Ltd. (the only respondent selected for individual examination) and 51 other companies are ineligible for separate rates and are therefore part of the China-wide entity, which is currently subject to an AD duty rate of 308.33 percent.

The ITA has also:

- preliminarily determined that Dezhou Kaihang Agricultural Science Technology Co. Ltd./Shandong Fengyu Edible Fungus Corporation Ltd., Fujian Haisan Foods Co. Ltd./Zhangzhou Hongda Import & Export Trading Co. Ltd., Xiamen International Trade & Industrial Co. Ltd., Zhangzhou Gangchang Canned Foods Co. Ltd., and Guangxi Jisheng Foods Inc. had no reviewable transactions during the period of review; and

- rescinded this review with respect to Fujian Tongfa Foods Group Co. Ltd., Mikado Food China Co. Ltd., Xiamen Hua Min Import & Export Co. Ltd., Zhangzhou Tan Co. Ltd., and Zhangzhou Yuxing Import & Export Trading Co. Ltd. because all review requests have been timely withdrawn.
