Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Quartz Surface Products. The International Trade Administration has made an affirmative preliminary countervailing duty determination on quartz surface products from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to begin collecting CV cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary net subsidy margins, which are 34.38 percent and 178.45 percent.

Mattresses. A petition filed Sept. 18 alleges that mattresses from China are being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. market, with the alleged average dumping margins ranging from 267.60 percent to 1,777.01 percent. Subject goods are currently classifiable under HTSUS subheadings 9404.21.0010, 9404.21.0013, 9404.29.1005, 9404.29.1013, 9404.29.9085, and 9404.29.9087 and may also enter under subheadings 9404.21.0095, 9404.29.1095, and 9404.29.9095.

Stainless Steel Bar. In its sunset review of the AD duty orders on stainless steel bar from Brazil, India, Japan, and Spain, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of the order on India would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time but that revocation of the orders would not. As a result, the order on India will remain in place but the others will be revoked.
