Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Chlorinated Isocyanurates. The International Trade Administration has continued its antidumping duty orders on chlorinated isocyanurates from China and Spain for five years, effective Nov. 29.

The products covered by these orders are all chlorinated isos, which are derivatives of cyanuric acid, described as chlorinated s-triazine triones. Chlorinated isos are currently classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 2933.69.6015, 2933.69.021, 2933.69.6050, 3808.40.5000, 3808.50.4000, and 3808.94.5000.

Steel Plate. The ITA has amended its preliminary affirmative dumping determination on carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Germany to indicate weighted average dumping margins of 5.00 percent to 6.56 percent. Cash deposits at these amended rates are required as of Nov. 29.

Aluminum Extrusions. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on aluminum extrusions from China for the period May 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 86.01 percent for eight exporters. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 29.

The ITA also determined that Xin Wei Aluminum Company Limited and Permasteelisa Hong Kong Limited had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.

Glycine. The ITA is rescinding its 2011/2012 administrative review of the AD duty order on glycine from China with respect to Baoding Mantong Fine Chemistry Co. Ltd. in light of a court decision. If this decision is not appealed or upheld on appeal the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on unliquidated entries of subject goods based on this rescission. However, the cash deposit rate for Baoding Mantong will remain the company-specific rate established for the most recent applicable period.

Supercalendered Paper. In the preliminary results of its expedited review of the countervailing duty order on supercalendered paper from Canada for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined subsidy rates of 0.79 percent (de minimis) for Catalyst Paper Corporation and 7.99 percent for Irving Paper Limited.
