Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Wood Flooring. The International Trade Commission has determined to conduct full sunset reviews of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on multilayered wood flooring from China. A schedule for these reviews will be established and announced at a later date.

Tires. The ITC will hold an open meeting Feb. 22 to conduct a vote in its final AD and CV injury investigations of truck and bus tires from China. If this vote is affirmative the International Trade Administration will issue AD and CV duty orders.

Artists’ Canvas. The ITC will hold an open meeting Feb. 22 to conduct a vote in its sunset review of the AD duty order on artists’ canvas from China.

Magnesia Carbon Bricks. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on magnesia carbon bricks from Mexico for the period Sept. 1, 2015, through Aug. 31, 2016, after the petitioner timely withdrew its request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Glycine. Effective Feb. 15, the ITA is continuing for five years the AD duty order on glycine from China.

Glycine is a free-flowing crystalline material used as a sweetener/taste enhancer, buffering agent, reabsorbable amino acid, chemical intermediate, and metal complexing agent. This order covers glycine of all purity levels. Glycine is currently classified under HTSUS 2922.49.4020.

Bedroom Furniture. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined that seven companies should be treated as part of the China-wide entity because they have not established separate rate eligibility. As a result, AD duties at the China-wide rate of 216.01 percent will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these companies during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from these companies that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 15.
