Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Softwood Lumber. The International Trade Administration has postponed from Feb. 21 to April 24 its preliminary countervailing duty determination on softwood lumber products from Canada. The petitioner requested this delay in light of the number of programs under investigation, the number of company and government respondents, and the expected complexity of the issues.

Tires. The ITA has amended its final affirmative dumping determination on new pneumatic off-the-road tires from India to specify weighted average dumping margins of 3.67 percent for ATC Tires Private Ltd. and all other producers/exporters besides Balkrishna Industries Limited, the other mandatory respondent. However, the AD cash deposits for these entities are zero after having been adjusted for countervailable subsidies. The ITA also finds that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to the “all others” entity.

Glycine. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on glycine from China, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of this order 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, this order will be continued for five years.
