Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Shrimp. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on frozen warmwater shrimp from Vietnam for the period Feb. 1, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 4.78 percent for 12 exporters. As a result, AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these exporters during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from these exporters that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 23.

The ITA also determined that two mandatory respondents and 51 additional companies for which a review was requested have not established their eligibility for a separate rate. As a result, AD duties at the Vietnam-wide rate of 25.76 percent will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these companies during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods from these companies that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 23.

The ITA also determined that 13 other companies had no reviewable transactions during the period of review.

Xanthan Gum. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on xanthan gum from China for the period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015, the ITA determined weighted average dumping margins of zero to 154.07 percent for five exporters. AD duties at these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 23.

The ITA also determined that three companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review and rescinded this review with respect to one company whose one sale of subject goods during this period was not bona fide.

Separately, in the final results of its administrative review of this order for the period July 19, 2013, through June 30, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero to 154.07 percent for four exporters.
