Aluminum Extrusions. The International Trade Commission has scheduled full sunset reviews of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on aluminum extrusions from China. A hearing will be held Jan. 26, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Jan. 19, pre-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 18, post-hearing briefs are due by Feb. 6, and final written comments are due by March 3.

Stainless Steel. The ITC has scheduled the final phase of its AD and CV injury investigations of stainless steel sheet and strip from China. A hearing will be held Jan. 31, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Jan. 25, pre-hearing briefs are due by Jan. 24, post-hearing briefs are due by Feb. 7, and final comments are due by Feb. 28.

Corrosion-Resistant Steel. The International Trade Administration has initiated an expedited review of the CV duty order on corrosion-resistant steel products from Korea that will either establish individual cash deposit rates for POSCO and Hyundai Steel Company or exclude them from this order if they have a final rate of zero or de minimis.

Refrigerant. The ITA has made a preliminary affirmative dumping determination on 1,1,1,2-tetrafluoroethane (R-134a) from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary dumping margins, which range from 137.23 percent to 188.94 percent. Because the ITA found that critical circumstances exist with respect to the separate rate respondents and the China-wide entity, CBP will be instructed to impose provisional measures on subject goods retroactively to 90 days prior to publication of this preliminary determination in the Federal Register.
