US DOC Rescinding Review of AD Order on Steel Nails from Taiwan
US’s Department of Commerce is rescinding the administrative review, in part, of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from Taiwan for the period July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. Commerce is rescinding this review with respect to 9 companies China Staple Enterprise Corporation, Hor Liang Industrial Corp, Hoyi Plus Co Ltd, Liang Chyuan Industrial Co Ltd, Romp Coil Nail Industries Inc, Trim International Inc, UJL Industries Co Ltd, Yu Chi Hardware Co Ltd and Zon Mon Co Ltd. The administrative review remains active only with respect to Create Trading Co Ltd, which has filed a certification of no reviewable sales. Commerce will instruct US Customs and Border Protection to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries at a rate equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication of this notice in the Federal Register.
On September 3, 2020, based on timely requests for review by the petitioner Mid Continent Steel & Wire Inc, a US domestic producer and interested party and nine Taiwanese companies, Commerce published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from Taiwan covering 141 companies and the period July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020. On September 21, 2020, the petitioner timely withdrew its request for administrative review of all companies originally requested, except for one company; Create Trading Co Ltd. Nine Taiwanese companies also self-requested an administrative review. On October 15, 2020, Commerce rescinded the administrative review, in part, of all companies under review except for Create Trading Co Ltd and the nine companies that self-requested an administrative review and for which their requests for review had not been withdrawn at that time. Subsequently, on November 30, 2020, the nine Taiwanese companies timely withdrew their requests for review.
