Wood Flooring. In its new shipper review of the antidumping duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China for the period Dec. 1, 2012, through Nov. 30, 2013, the International Trade Administration has preliminarily determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for Linyi Anying Wood Co. Ltd.

In a separate administrative review of this AD duty order, the ITA has preliminarily determined weighted average dumping margins of zero for Dalian Dajen Wood Co. Ltd., 18.27 percent for dozens of other exporters, and 58.84 percent for the China-wide entity.

Electrolytic Manganese Dioxide. The ITA has revoked the AD duty order on EMD from Australia, effective Oct. 7, 2013. The ITA will notify U.S. Customs and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of liquidation and discontinue the collection of AD cash deposits on EMD from Australia that is entered or withdrawn from warehouse on or after that date. The ITA will further instruct CBP to refund with interest all AD cash deposits on entries of subject merchandise made on or after that date. Entries of EMD from Australia prior to Oct. 7, 2013, will continue to be subject to suspension of liquidation and AD cash deposit  requirements and assessments.

However, the ITA has continued the AD duty order on EMD from China for five years, effective Jan. 9. For all imports of such merchandise CBP will continue to collect AD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry.

The merchandise covered by these orders includes all manganese dioxide that has been manufactured in an electrolysis process, whether in powder, chip or plate form. Subject merchandise is classified under HTSUS subheading 2820.10.0000. Excluded from the scope are natural manganese dioxide and chemical manganese dioxide.

Ferrovanadium. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting Jan. 14 in Washington, D.C., to hold a vote in its sunset review of the AD duty orders on ferrovanadium from China and South Africa. This vote will determine whether these orders will be continued for five years or revoked.

Lawn Groomers. The ITC will hold an open meeting Jan. 12 in Washington, D.C., to hold a vote in its sunset review of the AD and countervailing duty orders on tow-behind lawn groomers from China. This vote will determine whether these orders will be continued for five years or revoked.
