AD/CV Case Update: Wood Flooring, Lined Paper, OCTG, Potassium Permanganate
Wood Flooring. The International Trade Administration has issued a final clarification that the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on multilayered wood flooring from China cover products composed of a minimum of three layers.
Lined Paper Products. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on lined paper products from India for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, to specify a net subsidy rate of 8.30 percent for producer/exporter Goldenpalm Manufacturers PVT Limited. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on unliquidated entries of subject goods made during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 17, 2017.
Oil Country Tubular Goods. Effective March 26, 2017, the ITA has amended the AD duty order on OCTG from India to exclude GVN Fuels Limited and revise the weighted average dumping margin for Jindal SAW Limited to 11.24 percent. As a result, all currently suspended entries of subject goods produced and exported by GVN will be liquidated without regard to AD duties.
Potassium Permanganate. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on potassium permanganate from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
Separately, in the final results of its administrative review of the order for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for exporter Pacific Accelerator Limited. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, but no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods from this exporter that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 20.
