Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Corrosion-Resistant Steel. The International Trade Administration has corrected the antidumping duty orders on corrosion-resistant steel products from China, India, Italy, Korea and Taiwan, as follows.

- the weighted average dumping margin for three exporter/producer combinations and the China-wide entity is 209.97 percent and the cash deposit rate is 199.43 percent

- the last day of the extended period of provisional measures was July 1, not July 2

Steel Sinks. Effective July 24, 2016, the ITA has amended its final affirmative dumping determination on drawn stainless steel sinks from China to revise the weighted average dumping margins for a number of exporter/producer combinations, which now range from 36.59 percent to 50.11 percent. For all companies for which a new cash deposit rate has not been established, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require AD cash deposits at the new rates.

Potassium Permanganate. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on potassium permanganate from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 2.88 percent for exporter Pacific Accelerator Limited. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be assessed on subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Aug. 25.

Hot-Rolled Steel. The International Trade Commission has scheduled an expedited sunset review of the AD duty order on hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from Russia, which will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order. Written comments are due by Sept. 6.

Ribbons. In its sunset review of the AD duty orders on narrow woven ribbons with woven selvedge from China and Taiwan and the countervailing duty order on such ribbons from China, the ITC 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.
