Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Nails. The International Trade Administration has amended its final affirmative dumping determination on steel nails from Malaysia to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 2.66 percent for Region System Sdn. Bhd. and Region International Co. Ltd as well as “all other” companies. As a result, AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 16.

Hand Trucks. Pursuant to the settlement of a dispute between two domestic interested parties, a U.S. importer and the U.S. government, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative reviews of the AD duty order on hand trucks and certain parts thereof from China for the periods Dec. 1, 2009, through Nov. 30, 2010, and Dec. 1, 2010, through Nov. 30, 2011. As a result, the amended weighted average dumping margins for exporter New-Tec Integration (Xiamen) Co. Ltd. are 20.89 percent and 5.38, respectively. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the appropriate period of review. However, the AD cash deposit rate for entries of subject goods from New-Tec will continue to be zero, the rate established in the most recent administrative review of that company.

Scope Rulings. The ITA has published a list of scope rulings and anti-circumvention determinations made between Jan. 1 and March 31, 2015, with respect to the AD and/or CV duty orders on the following items.

- diffusion-annealed nickel-plated flat-rolled steel products from Japan (AD)

- circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico (AD)

- aluminum extrusions from China (AD/CV)

- wooden bedroom furniture from China (AD)

Plastic Tape. The International Trade Commission has determined to conduct a full sunset review of the AD duty order on pressure-sensitive plastic tape from Italy. This review will determine whether this order should be revoked or continued.
