Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Wire Rod. The International Trade Administration has aligned its final antidumping and countervailing duty determinations on carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Italy and Turkey, all of which are now due by Jan. 8, 2018.

PET Resin. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate resin from India for the period Oct. 15, 2015, through April 30, 2017, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 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.

Solar Cells. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China for the period Dec. 1, 2015, through Nov. 30, 2016, with respect to nine companies based on the withdrawal of the request 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.

Wood Flooring. Pursuant to a court decision, the ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China for the period Dec. 1, 2012, through Nov. 30, 2013, to hold that Linyi Bonn Flooring Manufacturing Co. Ltd. had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period. This amendment does not affect this company’s zero AD cash deposit rate, which was established in the most recently completed administrative review.

Titanium Sponge. The ITA has initiated AD and CV duty investigations of titanium sponge from Japan and Kazakhstan. Alleged dumping margins are 66.69 percent to 95.20 percent for Japan and 42.22 percent for Kazakhstan. Preliminary determinations are expected by November (CV) and January (AD).
