Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Hot-Rolled Steel. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled, flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products from Russia for the period Dec. 19, 2014, through Nov. 30, 2015, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 184.56 percent for Severstal PAO and Severstal Export. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 7.

Honey. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on honey from China for the period Dec. 1, 2015, through Nov. 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of $2.63/kg for the China-wide entity. The ITA has also preliminarily rescinded its new shipper review of this order for the same period with respect to Jiangsu Runchen Agricultural/Sideline Foodstuff Co. Ltd. because it cannot determine whether this company made a bona fide sale to the U.S.

Hardwood Plywood. The International Trade Commission has scheduled the final phase of its AD and CV injury investigations of hardwood plywood from China. A hearing will be held Oct. 26, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Oct. 19, pre-hearing briefs are due by Oct. 18, post-hearing briefs are due by Nov. 2, and final comments are due by Nov. 27.

Oil Country Tubular Goods. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on OCTG from Korea for the period July 18, 2014, through Aug. 31, 2015, to specify weighted average dumping margins of 29.76 percent for NEXTEEL Co. Ltd. and 16.26 percent for non-examined companies. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 17, 2017.

Garlic. The ITA has initiated a new shipper review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China to determine whether Qingdao Doo Won Foods Co. Ltd. is entitled to a separate AD duty rate.
