Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Nails. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on steel nails from Vietnam for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the CV cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Pipe and Tube. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on light-walled rectangular pipe and tube from Mexico, the ITA has determined that Perfiles LM S.A. de C.V. is the successor-in-interest to Perfiles y Herrajes LM S.A. de C.V.

Woven Ribbon. In the final 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 Huzhou Kingdom Coating Industry Co. Ltd. and Huzhou Unifull Label Fabric Co. Ltd. have not established their eligibility for separate rates and are therefore subject to the China-wide rate of 247.26 percent. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these two companies during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 17.

Garment Hangers. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China for the period Oct. 1, 2015, through Sept. 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 5.02 percent for Shanghai Wells Hanger Co. Ltd./Hong Kong Wells Ltd. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 17.

Mechanical Tubing. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on cold-drawn mechanical tubing from China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, and Switzerland. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to collect AD cash deposits from importers of subject goods at the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 61.59 percent to 186.89 percent for China, 75.39 percent to 209.06 percent for Germany, zero to 7.57 percent for India, 31.42 percent to 36.80 percent for Italy, 5.10 percent to 48.00 percent for Korea, and 34.15 percent to 68.59 percent for Switzerland.
