AD/CV Update: Garlic, Ribbons, Steel Pipe, Polyester Fiber

Thursday, July 20, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Garlic. Pursuant to a court decision, the International Trade Administration has amended the final results of its new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from China for the period Nov. 1, 2011, through Oct. 31, 2012, to specify a weighted average dumping margin of $0.08/kg for Shijiazhuang Goodman Trading Co. Ltd.. If this decision is not appealed or is upheld on appeal the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties based on this rate on unliquidated entries of subject goods. In addition, the ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits at this rate on entries of subject goods from Goodman effective June 5, 2017.

Ribbons. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on narrow woven ribbon with woven selvedge from China for the period Sept. 1, 2015, through Aug. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined that neither of two respondents has established eligibility for a separate rate and are therefore part of the China-wide entity, which is currently subject to an AD cash deposit rate of 247.26 percent.

The ITA is also rescinding this review with respect to two other companies that withdrew their requests for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods from these companies at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Steel Pipe. A NAFTA binational panel has been requested to review the final results of the ITA’s 2014-2015 administrative review of the AD duty order on circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has terminated its AD duty investigation of finer denier polyester staple fiber from Vietnam after the petitioners withdrew their petition with respect to that country. The ITA’s investigations of such goods from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan remain underway.
