Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Steel Wire Rod. Based on the timely withdrawal of the requests for review, the International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative reviews of (a) the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Brazil for the period Oct. 1, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2017, and (b) the countervailing duty order on such goods for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD and CV duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption on or after March 19.

Tissue Paper Products. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on tissue paper products from China for the period March 1, 2016, through Feb. 28, 2017, the ITA has determined that (a) Global Key Inc. is not eligible for a separate rate and is therefore subject to the China-wide rate, which is currently 112.64 percent, and (b) Chung Rhy Special Paper Mill Co. Ltd. had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period.

Large Residential Washers. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on large residential washers from Mexico for the period Feb. 1, 2016, through Jan. 31, 2017, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 72.41 percent for Electrolux Home Products Corp. N.V. and Electrolux Home Products de Mexico S.A. de C.V. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 19.

Aluminum Foil. The International Trade Commission has made final affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on aluminum foil from China. As a result, the ITA will issue AD and CV duty orders on this product.

Rubber Bands. The ITC has made preliminary affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on rubber bands from China and Thailand. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD and CV duty investigations of such products, with preliminary determinations due by April 26 (CV) and July 10 (AD).

The ITC has terminated its AD injury investigation of rubber bands from Sri Lanka after finding that such imports are negligible.
