Magnesia Carbon Bricks. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on magnesia carbon bricks from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the International Trade Administration has found no evidence of any reviewable entries, shipments, or sales of subject goods to the U.S. during this period by any of the companies subject to this review.
