Request Admin Reviews. The International Trade Administration will accept through Aug. 1 requests for administrative reviews of the antidumping and/or countervailing duty orders on the following goods for the periods July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016 (AD) or Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015 (CV), unless otherwise noted.

Upcoming Sunset Reviews. The ITA and International Trade Commission are scheduled to initiate in August sunset reviews to determine whether the revocation of the following AD duty orders would be likely to lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury.

- glycine from China

- polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan

Flanges. The ITC has instituted AD injury investigations of finished carbon steel flanges from India, Italy and Spain and a CV injury investigation of such flanges from India. A conference will be held July 21, requests to appear at the conference are due by July 19, written briefs are due by July 26, and the ITC’s preliminary determinations are due by Aug. 15.

Solar Cells. In the final results of its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules, from China, the ITA has determined that Hangzhou Sunny Energy Science and Technology Co. Ltd. is the successor-in-interest to Hangzhou Zhejiang University Sunny Energy Science and Technology Co. Ltd. and is therefore entitled to its AD cash deposit rate, which is currently 9.67 percent. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits at this rate on subject goods exported by Hangzhou Sunny and entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 5.

Pipe Fittings. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on stainless steel butt-weld pipe fittings from Italy for the period Feb. 1, 2014, through Jan. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 17.29 percent for Filmag Italia S.p.A. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after July 5.

Tissue Paper Products. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on tissue paper products from China, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will soon be continued for five years.

Alloy Magnesium. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on alloy magnesium from China, the ITC has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will soon be continued for five years.
