Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Plate. In its sunset review of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate from India, Indonesia, and Korea, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, these orders will remain in place.

Pasta. The International Trade Administration is rescinding its administrative review of the AD duty order on pasta from Turkey for the period July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, after determining that Mutlu Makarnacilik Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S., the sole respondent, had no bona fide sales of subject goods to the U.S. during this period. Any entries of subject goods from this company will be liquidated at the “all others” rate, which is currently 51.49 percent.

Oil Country Tubular Goods. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on OCTG from Turkey for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a net subsidy rate of 0.48 percent for Borusan Mannesman Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. Because this rate is de minimis, the ITA will not assess CV duties on entries of subject goods from this company during the period of review and will not require CV cash deposits for subject goods from this company that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 14.

Wooden Furniture. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on wooden bedroom furniture from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined that four companies did not establish eligibility for a separate rate and are part of the China-wide entity (which is currently subject to an AD duty rate of 216.01 percent), determined that eight companies had no shipments, and rescinded this review for one company for which all review requests were withdrawn.

Xanthan Gum. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on xanthan gum from China for the period July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2015, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping rates of zero to 9.30 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 14.
