Cold-Rolled Steel. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting Sept. 10 in Washington, D.C., to hold a preliminary vote in its antidumping and countervailing injury investigations of cold-rolled steel flat products from Brazil, China, India, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Russia and the United Kingdom.

Steel Nails. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel nails from China for the period Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014, the International Trade Administration has determined (a) a weighted average dumping margin of 12.51 percent for 21 reviewed exporters, (b) that a group of six affiliated companies considered a single entity failed to cooperate or establish its independence from the China-wide entity, and (c) that 11 companies had no reviewable transactions during the period of review.

Large Power Transformers. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on large power transformers from Korea for the period Aug. 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014, the ITA determined weighted average dumping margins of 3.96 percent to 11.01 percent.

PC Strand. In its sunset review of the CV duty order on pre-stressed concrete steel wire strand from China, the ITA determined that revocation of this order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of countervailable subsidies at net subsidy rates of 9.42 to 45.85 percent.

Pipes and Tubes. The ITC has made a preliminary affirmative AD injury determination on heavy walled rectangular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Korea, Mexico and Turkey and a preliminary affirmative CV injury determination on such goods from Turkey. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD and CV duty investigations, with preliminary determinations due on or about Oct. 14 (CV) and Dec. 28 (AD).

Diamond Sawblades. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof 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 be continued for five years.
