Matchbooks. In its sunset review of the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on commodity matchbooks from India, the International Trade Administration has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping or countervailable subsidies at the rates of 66.07 percent and 9.88 percent, respectively.

Sawblades. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the rate of 164.09 percent.

Washers. In its administrative review of the CV duty order on large residential washers from Korea for the period June 5, 2012, through Dec. 31, 2013, the ITA has preliminarily determined countervailable subsidy rates of 34.77 percent for Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd. and 81.91 percent for Daewoo Electronics Corp. Interested parties may submit written comments by April 10.

PC Strand. In its sunset review of the CV duty order on pre-stressed concrete steel wire strand from India, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy at the rate of 62.92 percent.

Stainless Steel Bar. In its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from Brazil for the period Feb. 1, 2013, through Jan. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined a weighted-average dumping margin of zero for producer/exporter Villares Metals S.A. As a result, no AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 11.

In its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from Spain for the period March 1, 2013, through Feb. 28, 2014, the ITA has determined that Gerdau Aceros Especiales Europa S.L. had no reviewable entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. Any entries of subject merchandise during this period by Gerdau that the company did not know were destined for the U.S. will be liquidated at the all others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate companies involved. In addition, the AD cash deposit rate for Gerdau remains the rate assigned in the most recently completed review of that company.
