Ball Bearings. The International Trade Administration has issued the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty orders on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan and the United Kingdom for the period May 1, 2010, through April 30, 2011. Weighted average dumping margins are 106.61 percent for Japan and 1.55 percent to 254.25 percent for the U.K. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. However, no AD cash deposits are currently required because both orders were revoked as of Sept. 15, 2011.

Stainless Steel Sinks. The ITA has rescinded its new shipper review of the AD duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks from China for the period Oct. 4, 2012, through Oct. 14, 2013, for Hubei Foshan Success Imp. & Exp. Co. Ltd. because this company’s sale of subject merchandise was not bona fide. As a result, effective Jan. 27, the ITA will instruct CBP to discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject merchandise by Foshan Success. Instead, cash deposits at the China-wide rate will be required for exports of subject merchandise by Foshan Success that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 27. In addition, entries of subject merchandise by Foshan Success covered by this new shipper review will be assessed AD duties at the China-wide rate.

Lightweight Thermal Paper. The ITA has amended the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on lightweight thermal paper from Germany for the period Nov. 20, 2008, through Oct. 31, 2009. The revised weighted average dumping margin for Papierfabrik August Koehler AG is 0.03 percent (de minimis). If this rate becomes final, the ITA will instruct CBP to liquidate unliquidated entries of subject merchandise exported by Koehler during the period of review without regard to AD duties. The cash deposit rate for Koehler will remain the company-specific rate established for the most recent period during which the respondent was reviewed, which is zero.

Tapered Roller Bearings. The ITA has issued the final results of its administrative and new shipper reviews of the AD duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from China for the period June 1, 2012, through May 31, 2013. The weighted average dumping margins are 0.65 percent for exporters Changshan Peer Bearing Co. Ltd. and Zhejiang Zhaofeng Mechanical and Electronic Co. Ltd. and zero for exporter/producer Shanghai Tainai Bearing Co. Ltd. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 27.

Uncoated Paper. The International Trade Commission has instituted AD and CV injury investigations of certain uncoated paper from Australia, Brazil, China, Indonesia and Portugal. A conference will be held Feb. 11, requests to appear at the conference are due by Feb. 9 and written submissions are due by Feb. 17.
