AD/CV Notices

Following are summaries of current AD/CV actions targeting mainland Chinese manufacturers taken by the DOC.

Product: Various products.
Nature of Notice: Initiation of administrative reviews of AD/CV duty orders, effective 10 April 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-04-10/pdf/2017-07104.pdf)
Summary: The DOC has initiated separate administrative reviews of the following AD duty orders for the period 1 February 2016 through 31 January 2017: certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products (A-570-010), frozen warm water shrimp (A-570-893), small diameter graphite electrodes (A-570-929), uncovered innerspring units (A-570-928) and utility scale wind towers (A-570-981). The DOC has also launched reviews of the CV duty orders on certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products (C-570-011) and utility scale wind towers (C-570-982) for the period 1 January through 31 December 2016. These reviews are scheduled to be completed by 28 February 2018 and could result in (a) revised AD/CV duty assessments for entries of subject merchandise made during the applicable period of review and (b) revised AD/CV duty cash deposit rates for entries made after completion of the review.

Product: Seamless refined copper pipe and tube, classified under HTSUS subheadings 7411.10.1030, 7411.10.1090,7407.10.1500, 7419.99.5050, 8415.90.8065 and 8415.90.8085.
Nature of Notice: Court decision not in harmony with final results and amended final results of administrative review in AD investigation A-570-964, effective 3 April 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-04-10/pdf/2017-07105.pdf)
Summary: The DOC has amended the final results of its administrative review of subject merchandise for the period 1 November 2012 through 31 October 2013 after the U.S. Court of International Trade sustained its final remand redetermination. As a result, the DOC has assigned an amended weighted-average dumping margin of 6.09 percent to Golden Dragon Precise Copper Tube Group, Inc., Hong Kong GD Trading Co., Ltd. and Golden Dragon Holding (Hong Kong) International Ltd. However, because there have been subsequent administrative reviews for these companies the cash deposit rate will remain the zero rate published in the 2013-2014 review.

Product: Certain cut-to-length steel plate, classified under HTSUS 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000, 7208.53.0000, 7208.90.0000, 7210.70.3000, 7210.90.9000, 7211.13.0000, 7211.14.0030, 7211.14.0045, 7211.90.0000, 7212.40.1000, 7212.40.5000 and 7212.50.0000.

Summary: The DOC has rescinded an anti-circumvention inquiry that sought to determine whether certain cut-to-length steel plate with small amounts of specific alloying elements (chromium, titanium and boron) were circumventing the AD duty order on subject merchandise. The DOC indicates that this inquiry is no longer necessary because there are now AD and CV duty orders in place on mainland Chinese cut-to-length plate made of alloy steel, specifically 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.

Product: Freshwater crawfish tail meat, classified under HTSUS subheadings 0306.19.0010, 0306.29.0000, 1605.40.1010 and 1605.40.1090.

Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-04-13/pdf/2017-07494.pdf)
Summary: The DOC has rescinded its review of subject merchandise exported by two companies (Langfang Pannext Pipe Fitting Co. Ltd. and Jinan Meide Casting Co. Ltd.) during the period 1 December 2015 through 30 November 2016 because the petitioner withdrew its review request. As a result, the cash deposit rates for subject merchandise from these companies will continue to be the rates established in the most recently completed administrative review. The review will continue with respect to two companies (Beijing Sai Lin Ke Hardware Co. Ltd. and LDR Industries Inc.).

Summary: The USITC determined on 15 March that revocation of the AD duty order on subject merchandise would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. Accordingly, the DOC has extended the order for an additional five years.

Nature of Notice: Clarification of scope of AD duty order 570-970 and CV duty order C-570-971, effective 19 April 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-04-19/pdf/2017-07910.pdf)
Summary: The DOC has issued numerous scope determinations finding that wood flooring products consisting of only two layers are outside the scope of the AD and CV duty orders on subject merchandise. The products subject to these rulings typically (but not exclusively) consist of a single wood veneer layer, or ply, in combination with a base layer of various constructions and materials. Due to the large number of scope ruling requests concerning the aforementioned two-layer wood flooring products since the imposition of the orders, the DOC has decided to clarify the scope of the orders by revising the first paragraph of the scope, as follows:

“Multilayered wood flooring is composed of an assembly of two or more layers or plies of wood veneer(s)3 in combination with a core (i.e. a minimum of three layers). The several layers, along with the core, are glued or otherwise bonded together to form a final assembled product. Multilayered wood flooring is often referred to by other terms, e.g., “engineered wood flooring” or “plywood flooring.” Regardless of the particular terminology, all products that meet the description set forth herein are intended for inclusion within the definition of subject merchandise.”

Interested parties may submit comments on the revised scope by 1 May.

Summary: The DOC has established the followings dumping margins for imports of subject merchandise during the period 1 September 2014 through 31 August 2015. CBP will assess AD duties on all appropriate entries using these rates, which will also be used to determine new AD cash deposit requirements.
