Ball Bearings. Pursuant to a court decision, the International Trade Administration has amended the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on ball bearings and parts thereof from Japan for the period May 1, 2005, through April 30, 2006. Effective Jan. 3, 2015, the revised weighted average dumping margin for Aisin Seiko Co. Ltd. is 1.13 percent. If the court decision becomes final, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties at this rate on entries of subject merchandise during the period of review. However, this order was revoked effective Sept. 15, 2011, so there are no longer any AD cash deposits on entries of this item.

Preserved Mushrooms. In its new shipper review of the AD duty order on preserved mushrooms from China for the period Feb. 1, 2013, through Feb. 28, 2014, the ITA has preliminarily determined a weighted average dumping margin of 168.9 percent for manufacturer/exporter Shandong Fengyu Edible Fungus Co. Ltd./Dezhou Kaihang Agricultural Science Technology Co. Ltd. No AD assessments or cash deposits are yet required on these goods.

Melamine. The ITA has postponed from Feb. 5 to April 13 its preliminary countervailing duty determinations on melamine from China and Trinidad & Tobago pursuant to a timely request by the petitioner.

Lightweight Thermal Paper. The International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of the AD and CV duty orders on lightweight thermal paper from China 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, these orders will be continued for five years.

However, the ITC has also determined that revocation of the AD duty order on lightweight thermal paper from Germany would not 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 shortly be revoked.

Barium Carbonate. The ITC has determined that revoking the AD duty order on barium carbonate from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will be extended for five years.

Solar Panels. The ITC has made final affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China (AD/CV) and Taiwan (AD). As a result, the ITA will soon issue AD and CV duty orders on these products.
