Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

New Administrative Reviews. The International Trade Administration has initiated administrative reviews of the following antidumping and/or countervailing duty orders for the periods July 1, 2017, through June 30, 2018 (AD) and Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2017 (CV), unless otherwise noted. These reviews could result in changes in the AD or CV duty rates for entries of subject goods.

- corrosion-resistant steel products from Korea (AD/CV), India (AD/CV), and Taiwan (AD)

- polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip from India (AD/CV) and Taiwan (AD)

- carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Italy (AD; Nov. 4, 2016, through April 30, 2018)

- pasta from Italy (AD/CV)

- steel nails from Korea (AD), Malaysia (AD), Oman (AD), Taiwan (AD), and Vietnam (AD/CV)

- carbon steel butt-weld pipe fittings from China (AD)

- circular welded carbon quality steel pipe from China (AD/CV)

- tapered roller bearings from China (AD; June 1, 2017, through May 31, 2018)

- xanthan gum from China (AD)

- steel concrete reinforcing bar from Turkey (AD, March 7, 2017, through June 30, 2018; and CV, March 1 through Dec. 31, 2017)

- oil country tubular goods from China (CV)

Aluminum Extrusions. In the final results of its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on aluminum extrusions from China, the ITA finds that changed circumstances exist and that the appropriate cash deposit rate for the 21 exporters/producers who retain a separate rate should be recalculated to reflect the revised CV duty export subsidy offsets from the amended final affirmative CV duty determination. As a result, the AD cash deposit rate for subject goods from these companies that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Sept. 10 will be 32.51 percent.

Tires. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on passenger vehicle and light truck tires from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined net subsidy rates of 23.68 percent to 26.81 percent. The ITA has also preliminarily determined to rescind this review with respect to various companies based on the timely withdrawal of the requests for review.

Wooden Bedroom Furniture. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2017, with respect to 60 companies due to the withdrawal of the requests for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods from these companies at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
