Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Garlic. The International Trade Administration has continued its antidumping duty order on fresh garlic from China, effective Nov. 6. The products subject to this order are all grades of garlic, whole or separated into constituent cloves, whether or not peeled, fresh, chilled, frozen, provisionally preserved, or packed in water or other neutral substance, but not prepared or preserved by the addition of other ingredients or heat processing. Subject garlic is currently classifiable under HTSUS 0703.20.0000, 0703.20.0005, 0703.20.0015, 0703.20,0010, 0703.20.0020, 0703.20.0090, 0710.80.7060, 0710.80.9750, 0711.90.6000, 0711.90.6500, 2005.90.9500, 2005.90.9700, and 2005.99.9700.

This order does not cover (a) garlic that has been mechanically harvested and is primarily, but not exclusively, destined for non-fresh use, and (b) garlic that has been specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested and otherwise prepared for use as seed.

Large Power Transformers. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on large power transformers from Korea for the period Feb. 16, 2012, through July 31, 2013, to specify revised weighted average dumping margins of 9.09 percent to 13.82 percent. If these final results are not appealed or upheld on appeal, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on unliquidated entries at these rates. However, since new cash deposit rates have been established for the subject companies in a more recent review, these amended final results do not affect those rates.

Steel Bar. In its sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel bar from Brazil, India, Japan, and Spain, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at rates of up to 19.43 percent for Brazil, 21.02 percent for India, 61.47 percent for Japan, and 62.85 percent for Spain.

Tapered Roller Bearings. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at rates of up to 60.25 percent.

Wind Towers. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on utility scale wind towers from Vietnam for the period Feb. 1, 2016, through Jan. 31, 2017, the ITA has found no evidence of any shipments of subject goods by CS Wind Group and rescinded this review with respect to Vina Halla Heavy Industries Ltd. and UBI Tower Sole Member Company Ltd.
