Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Wood Flooring. In the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the International Trade Administration has determined net subsidy rates of 0.11 percent (de minimis) to 0.85 percent. For the producer/exporter assigned the de minimis rate, no CV duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and no CV cash deposits will be collected for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 14. For all other producers/exporters, CV duties at the rate of 0.85 percent will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 14.

Rebar. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on steel concrete reinforcing bar from Mexico for the period Nov. 1, 2015, through Oct. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for nine producers and/or exporters. As a result, no AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 14.

Steel Propane Cylinders. The ITA has initiated AD duty investigations of steel propane cylinders from China, Taiwan, and Thailand and a CV duty investigation of such items from China. The alleged dumping margins are 55.41 percent to 108.60 percent for China, 27.19 percent to 66.20 percent for Taiwan, and 47.67 percent to 122.48 percent for Thailand. There are 18 alleged subsidy programs for China.

Ripe Olives. The ITA has made final affirmative AD and CV duty determinations on ripe olives from Spain. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits at the weighted average dumping margins of 16.88 percent to 25.50 percent. In addition, if the International Trade Commission makes an affirmative CV injury determination, the ITA will instruct CBP to resume collection of CV cash deposits at the net subsidy rates, which range from 7.52 percent to 27.02 percent.

Citric Acid and Citrate Salts. The ITC has terminated its CV injury investigation of citric acid and citrate salts from Thailand after the ITA made a final negative CV duty determination.
