Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Oil Country Tubular Goods. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on oil country tubular goods from Taiwan for the period Sept. 1, 2015, through Aug. 31, 2016, due to the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods during this period at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Stainless Steel Bar. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from Brazil for the period Feb. 1, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for producer/exporter Villares Metals S.A.

In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from India for the same period, the ITA has determined (a) that Bhansali Bright Bars Pvt. Ltd. had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review, (b) to apply the importer-specific assessment rate calculated for Ambica Steels Limited in the 2014-2015 review to one suspended entry of subject goods during the POR, and (c) to liquidate all other entries of subject goods attributed to Ambica during the POR at the “all others” rate.

Sunset Reviews. The International Trade Commission has instituted sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on brass sheet and strip from France, Germany, Italy, and Japan and silicon metal from China. These reviews will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.

The ITC has scheduled expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on helical spring lock washers from China and Taiwan and welded stainless steel pipe from Korea and Taiwan. Comments are due no later than March 13 (pipe) and March 24 (washers).
