Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Flanges. The International Trade Commission has made preliminary affirmative antidumping and countervailing injury determinations on stainless steel flanges from China and India. As a result, the International Trade Administration will continue its AD and CV duty investigations, with preliminary determinations due by Nov. 9 (CV) and Jan. 23 (AD).

Steel Sheet and Strip. The ITA is continuing the AD duty orders on stainless steel sheet and strip in coils from Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and the CV duty order on such goods from Korea.

The subject sheet and strip is a flat-rolled product in coils that is greater than 9.5 mm in width and less than 4.75 mm in thickness and that is annealed or otherwise heat-treated and pickled or otherwise descaled. It may also be further processed (i.e., cold-rolled, polished, aluminized, coated, etc.) provided that it maintains the specific dimensions of sheet and strip following such processing. There are a number of exclusions from the scope of these orders.

Butt-Weld Pipe Fittings. The ITC has scheduled expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy, Malaysia, and the Philippines. Comments are due by Nov. 17. These reviews will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.

Mechanical Tubing. The ITC has scheduled the final phase of its AD injury investigations of cold-drawn mechanical tubing from China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, and Switzerland and its CV injury investigations of such goods from China and India. A hearing will be held Dec. 6, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Dec. 1, pre-hearing briefs are due by Nov. 29, post-hearing briefs are due by Dec. 12, and final comments are due by Jan. 3.

Steel Nails. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on steel nails from the United Arab Emirates, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place.

PTFE Resin. The ITC has instituted AD injury investigations of polytetrafluoroethylene resin from China and India and a CV injury investigation of PTFE resin from India. A conference will be held Oct. 19, requests to appear at the conference are due by Oct. 17, written comments are due by Oct. 24, and the ITC’s preliminary determinations are due by Nov. 13.
