Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Polyvinyl Alcohol. The International Trade Administration is continuing the antidumping duty orders on polyvinyl alcohol from China and Japan for five years, effective May 27. As a result, U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD cash deposits on such goods at the rates in effect at the time of entry.

However, the ITA has revoked the AD duty order on polyvinyl alcohol from Korea, effective April 13, 2014. The ITA will therefore instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation, discontinue the collection of AD cash deposits, and refund cash deposits made on entries of such goods that were entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after that date.

Wind Towers. The ITA is amending its final affirmative AD duty determination on utility scale wind towers from Vietnam to specify that the dumping margin and cash deposit rate for the CS Wind Group is 17.02 percent. The ITA will instruct CBP to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject merchandise at this rate effective May 21.

Steel Pipe. The ITA has announced a court decision upholding its determination in a section 129 World Trade Organization compliance proceeding not to adjust the AD duty rates on circular welded carbon quality steel pipe from China to take account of the reduction in the average price of imports of this product caused by certain countervailable subsidies.
