AD/CV: Wind Towers, Cooking Ware, HFC Blends, Steel Wire Rod
Wind Towers. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on utility scale wind towers from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, after the petitioner timely withdrew its request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on all entries of subject goods during this period at the CV cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
Cooking Ware. In its sunset review of the antidumping duty order on porcelain-on-steel cooking ware from China, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation of 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.
HFC Blends. The ITC has made a final affirmative AD injury determination on hydrofluorocarbon blends from China; as a result, the ITA will soon issue an AD duty order such products. However, the ITC made a negative critical circumstances determination, meaning that HFC blends that entered the U.S. from China prior to Feb. 1, 2016, will not be subject to retroactive AD duties.
The ITC has also made a final negative AD injury determination on HFC components from China, meaning no AD duty order will be issued on such products.
Steel Wire Rod. In its sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel wire rod from Japan, Korea and Taiwan, the ITC has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, these orders will shortly be continued for five years.
However, the ITC has also determined that revocation of the AD duty orders on stainless steel wire rod from Italy and Spain would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, these orders will be revoked.
