Upcoming Sunset Reviews. The ITA and International Trade Commission expect to initiate sunset reviews of the following AD and/or CV duty orders in September. These reviews will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.
- sulfanilic acid from China (AD) and India (AD/CV)
- carbon and alloy seamless standard, line and pressure pipe (under 4.5”) from Japan and Romania
- carbon and alloy seamless standard, line and pressure pipe (over 4.5”) from Japan
Aluminum Extrusions. In its sunset reviews of the AD and CV duty orders on aluminum extrusions from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of up to 33.28 percent and countervailable subsidies at rates of 12.05 percent to 374.15 percent.
Pistachios. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on in-shell (raw) pistachios from Iran, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the margin of 241.14 percent.
Steel Grating. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel grating from China for the period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015, the ITA has determined that (a) Ningbo Haitian International Co. Ltd. has not demonstrated its eligibility for separate rate status and is thus part of the China-wide entity and (b) Yantai Xinke Steel Structure Co. Ltd. made no shipments of subject goods during the period of review. As a result, AD duties at the China-wide rate of 145.18 percent will be assessed on entries of subject goods from Ningbo during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from Ningbo that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Aug. 5.
Phosphor Copper. The ITA has postponed its preliminary dumping determination on phosphor copper from Korea from Aug. 16 to Oct. 5 because the investigation is extraordinarily complicated.
Pipe Fittings. In its sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on carbon steel butt-weld pipe fittings from Brazil, China, Japan, Taiwan and Thailand, the ITC has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, these orders will soon be continued for five years.
