AD Cash Deposits or Bonds to be Required for Galvanized Steel Wire
AD Cash Deposits or Bonds to be Required for Galvanized Steel Wire. The International Trade Administration has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on galvanized steel wire from China and Mexico, with dumping margins ranging from 76.34% to 235% for China and 37.87% to 61.54% for Mexico. The ITA will now instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect cash deposits or bonds on entries of subject merchandise based on these rates.
The ITA is currently scheduled to make its final determinations in March 2012. If the International Trade Commission’s final injury determinations, which are due on or about April 24, are also affirmative, the ITA will issue antidumping duty orders.

Steel products to be included in the scope of these investigations are those in which (1) iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2% or less, by weight; and (3) none of the following elements exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: 1.80% of manganese, 1.50% of silicon, 1.00% of copper, 0.50% of aluminum, or 1.25% of chromium, or 0.30% of cobalt, 0.40% of lead, or 1.25% of nickel, 0.30% of tungsten, 0.02% of boron, 0.10% of molybdenum, 0.10% of niobium, 0.41% of titanium, 0.15% of vanadium, or 0.15% of zirconium.
