AD/CV Update: Glycine, Groundwood Paper, DOTP, Polyester Staple Fiber
Glycine. In a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on glycine from China the International Trade Administration has preliminarily determined that Salvi Chemical Industries Ltd. is eligible to participate in a certification process because it has demonstrated that glycine it produces is no longer processed from Chinese-origin glycine. The ITA had previously determined that Salvi was circumventing this order by processing Chinese glycine and labeling it to be of Indian origin and thus could not take part in a process whereby Salvi’s importers could certify that they had not imported Chinese-origin glycine and would not be subject to the AD duty rate for Chinese glycine.
Groundwood Paper. The International Trade Commission has initiated AD and CV injury investigations of uncoated groundwood paper from Canada. A conference will be held Aug. 30, requests to appear at the conference are due by Aug. 28, written comments are due by Sept. 5, and the ITC’s preliminary determinations are due by Sept. 25.
DOTP. The ITC has made an affirmative final AD injury determination on dioctyl terephthalate from Korea. As a result, the ITA will issue an AD duty order on this product.
Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITC has made affirmative preliminary AD injury determinations on low melt polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD duty investigations of this product, with preliminary determinations due by Dec. 4.
