Davis Index: Market Intelligence for the Global Metals and Recycled Materials Markets

The US Department of Commerce has revised its final antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) on non-refillable steel cylinders exported from China after the US International Trade Commission (ITC) affirmed these duties.


Commerce indicated in a notification issued on May 6, that it was revising the duties to correct a ministerial error in the final determination.


Under the revised duties, Commerce is levying an AD of 93.09pc and a CVD of 76.82pc on Chinese exporter Sanjiang Kai Yuan. It has slapped a 74.23pc AD and a 63.55pc CVD on Wuyi Xilinde Machinery Manufacture, and 112.21pc AD and 101.67pc CVD on all China-wide entities selling non-refillable steel cylinders to the US.


For Hangzhou JM Chemical, Ningbo Eagle Machinery & Technology, Zhejiang Kin-Shine Technology, T.T. International, and ICOOL International Commerce, the department levied an AD of 79.98pc and a CVD of 67.61pc for the product.


Preliminary AD on steel nails

Commerce also imposed a preliminary AD of 41.75pc on steel nails exported by Chinese firms Shanghai Curvet Hardware Products and Tianjin Zhonglian Metals Ware.


In a notification issued last week, the department said that its investigation had revealed that the two companies sold the product at less than fair value in the period of review from August 1, 2019, to July 31, 2020.


Commerce has called for public comment and rebuttal briefs that are to be presented to the department within 30 days of this notice before it determines the final duties.
