Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Pipe. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on circular welded non-alloy steel pipe from Mexico for the period Nov. 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero to 48.33 percent for five exporters or producers. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after May 23.

The ITA also determined that five companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.

Plastic Bags. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from Malaysia for the period Aug. 1, 2016, through July 31, 2017, the ITA has determined that one company had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period. For any suspended entries of subject goods for which this company did not know its goods were destined for the U.S., the ITA will instruct CBP to liquidate these entries at the all-others rate of 84.94 percent if there is no rate for the intermediate company involved in the transaction.

Magnets. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on raw flexible magnets from China for the period Sept. 1, 2016, through Aug. 31, 2017, based on the timely withdrawal of all requests for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods during this period at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Propane Cylinders. A petition was filed May 22 seeking the initiation of AD investigations of steel propane cylinders from China, Taiwan, and Thailand and a CV investigation of such goods from China. Alleged dumping margins are 60.33 percent to 100.66 percent for China, 27.19 percent to 62.48 percent for Taiwan, and 36.18 percent to 109.20 percent for Thailand.
