Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Ammonium Sulfate. The International Trade Administration has made a final affirmative countervailing duty determination on ammonium sulfate from China. The net subsidy rate for two reviewed companies and all others is 206.72 percent. If the International Trade Commission makes a final affirmative CV injury determination, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect CV cash deposits on entries of subject goods at this rate.

Corrosion-Resistant Steel. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on corrosion-resistant carbon steel flat products from Korea for the period Aug. 1, 2007, through July 31, 2008, to specify dumping margins of 5.56 percent to 9.83 percent. If the court decision stands the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on unliquidated entries of subject goods based on these revised rates. There are no cash deposit rates for this product because the order was revoked as of Feb. 14, 2012.

Chlorinated Isocyanurates. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from China for the period June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 53.95 percent to 61.03 percent. AD duties based on 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 17.

Bearings. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from China for the period June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for three reviewed exporters. As a result, no AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods from these companies during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for such goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 17. Also in this review the ITA determined that Yantai CMC Bearing Co. Ltd. does not qualify for a separate rate and is thus subject to the China-wide rate, which is currently 92.84 percent.

The ITA has rescinded its new shipper review of this order for the period June 1, 2014, through May 31, 2015, with respect to Shandong Bolong Bearing Co. Ltd. because its sale to the U.S. was not bona fide.

In the final results of a separate changed circumstances review of this order, the ITA has determined to reinstate Shanghai General Bearing Co. Ltd. to this order because it has resumed dumping subject goods in the U.S. As a result, AD cash deposits at the rate of 5.82 percent will be required for all subject goods from this company that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 17.
