In addition, the ITA has preliminarily determined that NKK Tubes had no shipments of subject merchandise during the period of review.

Tissue Paper Products. The International Trade Commission determined on June 8 that revocation of the AD duty order of certain tissue paper products from China would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. Accordingly, the ITA has extended the order for an additional five years.

Steel Wire Rod. The ITC has determined that revoking the AD duty orders on stainless steel wire rod from Japan, Korea and Taiwan would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, these AD duty orders will remain in place for five more years. On the other hand, the ITC has revoked the orders on subject merchandise from Italy and Spain.

Ammonium Sulfate. The ITC has issued preliminary affirmative injury determinations in its AD and CV investigations of ammonium sulfate from China. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD and CV duty investigations of imports of subject merchandise.
