AD/CV Notices: Steel Wire Rod, Bricks, Pipe, Urea, Vanadium, Alcohol
Circumvention of AD Duty Order on Steel Wire Rod from Mexico. The International Trade Administration has preliminarily determined that the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Mexico is being circumvented through the importation of wire rod with an actual diameter between 4.75 mm and 5.00 mm, which the ITA has concluded is indistinguishable in any meaningful sense in terms of overall physical characteristics from the items currently included within the scope of the order. This preliminary finding applies to such rod produced and/or exported by one company. As a result of this determination, the ITA will require U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require AD cash deposits at the “all others” rate of 20.11% on all shipments of violative merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 8, 2011.
