Sandler, Travis & Rosenberg Trade Report

Wood Flooring. In its sunset review of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on multilayered wood flooring from China, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, these orders will remain in place.

Steel Fittings. The International Trade Administration has postponed from Dec. 29 to March 5 its preliminary CV duty determination on forged steel fittings from China. The petitioners asserted that a delay is necessary due to the difficulty in determining which companies imported subject goods and the possibility that the ITA may find it necessary to select additional respondents or issue quantity and value questionnaires.

MSG. In accordance with a court decision, the ITA has amended its final affirmative AD duty determination on monosodium glutamate from China to specify a weighted average dumping margin of 34.15 percent for Langfang Meihua Bio-Technology Co. Ltd. This action does not affect the AD cash deposit rate for this company.

Pipe Fittings. The ITA has made a preliminary affirmative CV duty determination on cast iron soil pipe fittings from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require CV cash deposits on subject goods at the preliminary net subsidy rates, which range from 8.66 percent to 102.31 percent.
