Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Large Diameter Pipe. The International Trade Commission has made (a) final affirmative antidumping injury determinations on large diameter welded carbon and alloy steel line pipe from China and India and a final affirmative countervailing injury determination on such pipe from India, (b) final affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on large diameter welded carbon and alloy steel structural pipe from China, (c) a final negative CV injury determination on line pipe from China, (d) final negative AD and CV injury determinations on structural pipe from India, and (e) final negative AD and CV injury determinations on large diameter welded stainless steel pipe from China and India. The International Trade Administration will issue AD and/or CV duty orders in accordance with these determinations.

Clad Steel Plate. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on clad steel plate from Japan, the ITC 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 remain in place.

Steel Nails. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel nails from China for the period Jan. 23, 2008, through July 31, 2009, to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 15.43 percent for a number of exporters. If the court decision is not appealed or upheld on appeal, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods during the period of review based on this rate. However, each named exporter has received a more recent AD cash deposit rate.

Garlic. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China for the period Nov. 1, 2016, through Oct. 31, 2017, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of $2.87/kg to $4.60/kg for eight exporters.

High-Pressure Steel Cylinders. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on high-pressure steel cylinders from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined a net subsidy rate of 25.57 percent for Beijing Tianhai Industry Co. Ltd. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 10.
