AD/CV Case Update: Crawfish Meat, PET Film, Oil Country Tubular Goods
Crawfish Meat. In the final results of its administrative and new shipper reviews of the antidumping duty order on freshwater crawfish tail meat from China for the period Sept. 1, 2014, through Aug. 31, 2015, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for four producer/exporters. No AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods from these countries that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 12.
PET Film. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip from the United Arab Emirates for the period Nov. 1, 2014, through Oct. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 7.91 percent for JBF RAK LLC. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 12.
Oil Country Tubular Goods. Effective March 26, the ITA has amended its final AD duty determination on oil country tubular goods from India pursuant to a court decision. The revised weighted average dumping margins are 1.07 percent (de minimis) for GVN Fuels Limited and 11.24 percent for Jindal SAW Limited.
The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to revise Jindal’s AD cash deposit rate as indicated above and to no longer require AD cash deposits from GVN. In addition, if the court decision is not appealed or is upheld on appeal, the ITA will amend the AD duty order to exclude GVN’s entries from further suspension of liquidation and order all entries currently suspended to be liquidated without regard to AD duties.
