AD/CV Notices: Uncoated Paper, Melamine

Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Uncoated Paper. The International Trade Administration has made a preliminary affirmative determination of critical circumstances in its antidumping duty investigation of uncoated paper from Portugal. As a result, the ITA is directing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of any unliquidated entries of subject merchandise that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after May 27, 2015, which is 90 days prior to the date the preliminary affirmative dumping determination was published in the Federal Register.

Melamine. The ITA has made final affirmative AD and CV duty determinations on melamine from China and Trinidad & Tobago. The weighted average dumping margins are 363.31 percent for the China-wide entity and 172.53 percent for all producers/exporters in Trinidad & Tobago. The subsidy rates are 154.00 percent to 156.90 percent for China and 6.79 percent for Trinidad & Tobago.

As a result of the final affirmative AD duty determinations, the ITA will instruct CBP to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the above rates, as applicable. Further, as a result of the final affirmative CV duty determinations, if the International Trade Commission issues an affirmative CV injury determination, the ITA will order the resumption of the suspension of liquidation and require CV cash deposits at the final subsidy rates indicated above. The ITA will also adjust the AD cash deposit rates by the amount of the export subsidies, where appropriate.

If the ITC issues a negative injury determination, these investigations will be terminated and no producers or exporters will be subject to future AD or CV cash deposits and all cash deposits already collected will be refunded.
