Activated Carbon. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on activated carbon from China for the period April 1, 2014, through March 31, 2015, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of $0.02/kg to $1.756/kg for a number of exporters. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Sept. 8.
The ITA has also determined that Carbon Activated Tianjin Co. Ltd. had no shipments of subject goods during the period of review and that 181 companies for which a review was requested did not establish eligibility for a separate rate and are therefore part of the China-wide entity, which is currently subject to an AD cash deposit rate of $2.42/kg.
Hot-Rolled Steel. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on hot-rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products from Russia, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of 73.59 percent for JSC Severstal and 184.56 percent for the Russia-wide entity.
Mushrooms. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on preserved mushrooms from India for the period Feb. 1, 2014, through Jan. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 6.61 percent for Himalya International Ltd. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Sept. 8.
Flanges. The ITA has postponed from Sept. 23 to Nov. 21 its preliminary CV duty determination on finished carbon steel flanges from India.
