Brass Sheet and Strip. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on brass sheet and strip from Germany for the period March 1, 2014, through Feb. 28, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 22.61 percent for seven producers and/or exporters. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 7. The ITA also determined that Schwermetall, ThyssenKrupp and Wieland had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.

Pipe Fittings. In the final results of its expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on carbon steel butt-weld pipe fittings from Brazil, Japan, Taiwan, Thailand and China, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of up to 52.25 percent for Brazil, 65.81 percent for Japan, 87.3 percent for Taiwan, 52.6 percent for Thailand and 182.9 percent for China.

Frozen Fish Fillets. In the final results of its new shipper review of the AD duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam for the period Aug. 1, 2014, through Jan. 1, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of $1.25/kg for exporter/producer Hai Huong Seafood Joint Stock Company. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 7.

Frozen Shrimp. In the final results of its expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil, India, China and Thailand, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping at weighted average dumping margins up to 67.8 percent for Brazil, 110.9 percent for India, 112.81 percent for China and 5.34 percent for Thailand.

Stainless Steel. The ITA has postponed from July 21 to Sept. 9 its preliminary AD duty determination on stainless steel sheet and strip from China.
