AD/CV Case Update: Solar Products, Pipe Fittings

Thursday, April 13, 2017
Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Solar Products. In the final results of two changed circumstances reviews the International Trade Administration has determined that Hanwha Q CELLS (Qidong) Co. Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Hanwha SolarOne (Qidong) Co. Ltd. for purposes of the antidumping duty orders on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China and crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China and that Hanwha Q CELLS Hong Kong Limited is the successor-in-interest to Hanwha SolarOne Hong Kong Limited for purposes of the AD duty order on solar products from China. As a result, Q CELLS Qidong is entitled to SolarOne Qidong’s AD cash deposit rates and Q CELLS Hong Kong is entitled to SolarOne Hong Kong’s AD cash deposit rate.

The ITA will therefore instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on all shipments of solar cells and solar products from China that are exported and produced by Q CELLS Qidong and entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 13 at the rates of 13.18 percent and 30.06 percent, respectively. The ITA will also instruct CBP to collect AD cash deposits on all shipments of solar products from China that are produced by Q CELLS Qidong and exported by Q CELLS Hong Kong and entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 13 at the rate of 30.06 percent.

Pipe Fittings. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on malleable cast iron pipe fittings from China for the period Dec. 1, 2015, through Nov. 30, 2016, with respect to two companies based on the petitioner’s timely withdrawal of its request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods from these companies at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
