Scope


The scope of the investigation covers welded-wire rack decking, which is also known as, among other things, ‘‘pallet rack decking,’’ ‘‘wire rack decking,’’ ‘‘wire mesh decking,’’ ‘‘bulk storage shelving,’’ or ‘‘welded-wire decking.’’ Wire decking consists of wire mesh that is reinforced with structural supports and designed to be load bearing. The structural supports include sheet metal support channels, or other structural supports, that reinforce the wire mesh and that are welded or otherwise affixed to the wire mesh, regardless of whether the wire mesh and supports are assembled or unassembled and whether shipped as a kit or packaged separately. Wire decking is produced from carbon or alloy steel wire that has been welded into a mesh pattern. The wire may be galvanized or plated (e.g., chrome, zinc or nickel coated), coated (e.g., with paint, epoxy, or plastic), or uncoated (‘‘raw’’). The wire may be drawn or rolled and may have a round, square or other profile. Wire decking is sold in a variety of wire gauges.  The wire diameters used in the decking mesh are 0.105 inches or greater for round wire. For wire other than round wire, the distance between any two points on a cross-section of the wire is 0.105 inches or greater. Wire decking reinforced with structural supports is designed generally for industrial and other commercial storage rack systems.

Wire decking is produced to various profiles, including, but not limited to, a flat (‘‘flush’’) profile, an upward curved back edge profile (‘‘backstop’’) or downward curved edge profile (‘‘waterfalls’’), depending on the rack storage system. The wire decking may or may not be anchored to the rack storage system. The scope does not cover the metal rack storage system, comprised of metal uprights and cross beams, on which the wire decking is ultimately installed. Also excluded from the scope is wire mesh shelving that is not reinforced with structural supports and is designed for use without structural supports.

Wire decking enters the United States through several basket categories in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’). U.S. Customs and Border Protection has issued a ruling (NY F84777) that wire decking is to be classified under HTSUS 9403.90.8040. Wire decking has also been entered under HTSUS 7217.10, 7217.20, 7326.20, 7326.90, 9403.20.0020 and 9403.20.0030. While HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and Customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the investigations is dispositive. 
 

Dalian Huameilong Metal Products Gets 2.02% Subsidy Rate, Dailian Eastfound Metal Products Gets 3.13%, All Others 2.58%, 75 Non-Cooperative Companies Assigned 437.73%, In Preliminary Subsidy Determination


On November 9, 2009, the Department of Commerce published its affirmative preliminary determination in the countervailing duty investigation on imports of wire decking from China.  Commerce preliminarily determined that Chinese producers/exporters have received net countervailable subsidies ranging from 2.02 to 437.73 percent.

Subsidies are financial assistance from foreign governments that benefit the production, manufacture, or exportation of goods.

Mandatory respondents, Dalian Huameilong Metal Products Co., Ltd and Dalian Eastfound Metal Products, received net subsidy rates of 2.02 and 3.13 percent, respectively.  In this investigation, there are a significant number of companies that did not complete Commerce’s Quantity and Value Questionnaire. As a result, these companies will receive an adverse rate of 437.73 percent for non-responsiveness.  All other Chinese exporters received a net subsidy rate of 2.58 percent.  As a result of this preliminary determination, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect a cash deposit or bond based on these preliminary rates.  This will affect all entries of wire decking from China entered on or after November 9, 2009. 

The product covered by this investigation is welded-wire rack decking produced from carbon or alloy steel wire that has been welded into a mesh pattern. The wire mesh is reinforced with structural supports and designed to be load bearing. Wire decking reinforced with structural supports is designed generally for industrial and other commercial storage rack systems. The product covered by this investigation is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item number: 9403.90.8040. Wire Decking may also be entered under HTSUS 7217.10, 7217.20, 7217.90, 9403.20.0020, and 9403.20.0030. While the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, Commerce’s written description of the subject merchandise governs the scope of these investigations.

Commerce is currently scheduled to make its final determination in March 2010.

Commerce previously extended the deadline for the preliminary determination of the antidumping duty investigation into wire decking from China to January 4, 2010.

IMPORTERS! If you have shipments coming in from anyone on the list of uncooperative producer/exporters, below, you risk huge exposure to increased import duties.  Case briefs challenging the Department of Commerce's preliminary determinations will be due in approximately 1-2 months (7 days after Commerce issues the last verification report).
