The International Trade Administration, under the US Department of Commerce (DOC), has rescinded an administrative review of the anti-dumping duty order on certain steel nails from Viet Nam.

The review was meant for nails manufactured in Viet Nam between July 1, 2016 and June 30, 2017.

On September 13 last year, DOC published in the Federal Register a notice of initiation of an administrative review covering each of the 19 producers or exporters named by Mid Continent Steel and Wire, Inc. in its July 31 review request.

However, on September 28, the petitioner withdrew its review request for each of the 19 companies. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), DOC will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the party, or parties, that requested a review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review.

As MidContinent Steel and Wire, Inc. withdrew its request for review by the 90-day deadline, and no other party had requested an administrative review of this order, the department has decided to rescind the review.

DOC will instruct US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess the countervailing duties on all appropriate entries at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated anti-dumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, during the period.

DOC plans to issue guidelines to calculate duties for CBP within 15 days of publication in the Federal Register. — VNS
