AD/CV: Washers, Steel Plate, Plastic Bags
Large Residential Washers. The International Trade Commission has made a final affirmative antidumping injury determination on large residential washers from China. As a result, the International Trade Administration will soon issue an AD duty order on this product.
Steel Plate. The ITA has issued AD duty orders on carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the weighted average dumping margins, which are 74.52 percent for Brazil, 87.72 percent to 94.14 percent for South Africa, and 42.02 percent to 50.0 percent for Turkey.
The products covered by these orders are certain carbon and alloy steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances. Subject goods include plate that is produced by being cut to length from coils or from other discrete length plate and plate that is rolled or forged into a discrete length. The products covered include (1) universal mill plates (i.e., flat-rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 mm but not exceeding 1250 mm, and of a thickness of not less than 4 mm, that are not in coils and without patterns in relief), and (2) hot-rolled or forged flat steel products of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more and of a width that exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness, and that are not in coils, whether or not with patterns in relief. Covered products may be rectangular, square, circular, or other shapes and include products of either rectangular or non-rectangular cross-section where such non-rectangular cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process; i.e., products that have been worked after rolling (e.g., products that have been beveled or rounded at the edges).
Plastic Bags. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from China for the period Aug. 1, 2015, through July 31, 2016, after the petitioners timely withdrew their request for review. As a result, 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.
