Friday, July 21, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

DOTP. The International Trade Commission has made a final affirmative antidumping injury determination on dioctyl terephthalate from Korea. As a result, the International Trade Administration will shortly issue an AD duty order on this product.

Tapered Roller Bearings. The ITA has initiated an AD duty investigation of tapered roller bearings from Korea. Alleged dumping margins range from 46.28 percent to 132.24 percent.

The scope of this investigation covers all tapered roller bearings with a nominal outside cup diameter of eight inches and under, regardless of type of steel used to produce the bearing, whether of inch or metric size, and whether the bearing is a thrust bearing or not. Covered bearings include finished cup and cone assemblies entering as a set, finished cone assemblies entering separately, and finished parts (cups, cones, and tapered rollers). Finished rollers and finished cones that have not been assembled with rollers and a cage are also included. Tapered roller bearings subject to this investigation are primarily classifiable under HTSUS 8482.20.0040, 8482.20.0061, 8482.20.0070, 8482.20.0081, 8482.91.0050, 8482.99.1550, and 8482.99.1580.

The following are excluded from the scope of this investigation: (1) unfinished parts of tapered roller bearings (cups, cones, and tapered rollers); (2) cages, whether finished or unfinished; (3) the non-tapered roller bearing components of subject kits (e.g., grease, seal); and (4) tapered roller bearing wheel hub units, rail bearings, and other housed tapered roller bearings (flange, take up cartridges, and hanger units incorporating tapered rollers).
