Coated Paper. In the final results of its expedited sunset review of the antidumping duty orders on coated paper suitable for high-quality print graphics using sheet-fed presses from Indonesia and China, the International Trade Administration has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of 20.13 percent for Indonesia and 135.84 percent for China.

Solar Cells. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2013, the ITA has determined a net subsidy rate of 19.62 percent for JA Solar Technology Yangzhou Co. Ltd. (and its cross-owned affiliates), Wuxi Suntech Power Co. Ltd. and Changzhou Trina Solar Energy Co. Ltd.

Wood Flooring. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China for the period Dec. 1, 2013, through Nov. 30, 2014, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of (a) 13.34 percent for virtually all companies subject to review that have established their entitlement to a separate rate and (b) zero for Dalian Penghong Floor Products Co. Ltd./Dalian Shumaike Floor Manufacturing Co. Ltd. The ITA also determined that 19 companies subject to this review are ineligible for separate rates and are therefore part of the China-wide entity.

Washing Machines. The ITA has initiated an AD duty investigation of large residential washers and parts thereof from China. This investigation could lead to the imposition of AD duties on such goods, and the petitioners allege dumping margins between 68.92 percent and 109.04 percent.
