Preliminary CV Duty Determinations on Non-Oriented Electrical Steel
The International Trade Administration announced March 19 that it has made affirmative preliminary countervailing duty determinations on non-oriented electrical steel from China and Taiwan but a negative preliminary CV duty determination on such goods from Korea.
As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to begin requiring CV cash deposits on entries of subject merchandise from China and Taiwan based on the preliminary CV duty rates, which are 125.83% for China and 6.41% to 12.82% for Taiwan. Because the ITA also made an affirmative preliminary critical circumstances determination for China, the CV cash deposit requirement for that country will be retroactive to 90 days prior to the date this determination is published in the Federal Register.
NOES is sometimes referred to as cold-rolled non-oriented electrical steel, non-grain oriented, non-oriented, or cold-rolled non-grain oriented. The subject merchandise is provided for in HTSUS subheadings 7225.19.0000, 7226.19.1000 and 7226.19.9000 and may also be entered under subheadings 7225.50.8085, 7225.99.0090, 7226.92.5000, 7226.92.7050, 7226.92.8050 and 7226.99.0180.
