AD Cash Deposits/Bonds Now Required on Refrigerator-Freezers. The International Trade Administration has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on bottom mount combination refrigerator-freezers from Korea and Mexico. Dumping margins range from zero to 32.20% for Korea and 16.44% to 36.65% for Mexico.
The ITA will now instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits or bonds based on these preliminary rates for entries of subject merchandise, except that (a) no cash deposit or bond will be required for subject merchandise exported by respondents that received a zero dumping margin and (b) this requirement will be imposed on entries of subject merchandise from one Mexican respondent made on or after the date that is 90 days prior to the date the preliminary determinations are published in the Federal Register due to the ITA’s preliminary affirmative critical circumstances determination with respect to that respondent.
The ITA is scheduled to make its final dumping determinations in March 2012. If these determinations are affirmative, and the International Trade Commission’s final injury determinations (which are due by April 30) are also affirmative, the ITA will issue AD duty orders on this merchandise.
