AD/CV: Steel Wire Rod, Hardwood Plywood, Steel Plate, Softwood Lumber
Steel Wire Rod. The International Trade Commission has instituted a sunset review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel wire rod from India. This review will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order. Responses are due by Jan. 3.
Hardwood Plywood. The ITC has instituted and scheduled the preliminary phase of its AD and CV injury investigations of hardwood plywood from China. A conference will be held Dec. 9, written briefs are due by Dec. 14, and the ITC’s preliminary determinations are due by Jan. 3.
Steel Plate. The ITC has instituted sunset reviews of the AD and CV duty orders on cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate from India, Indonesia, and Korea. These reviews will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders. Responses are due by Jan. 3.
Softwood Lumber. A petition filed Nov. 25 alleges that softwood lumber from Canada is being sold at less than fair value in the U.S. market and benefitting from countervailable subsidies. The alleged dumping margins are as high as 52.89 percent and the petitioners have identified numerous programs as providing unfair subsidies. The petitioners are also alleging the existence of critical circumstances, which means that CV duty deposits could be required as early as mid-December and AD duty deposits could be required as soon as early February.
