AD/CV Case Update: Uncoated Paper, Uranium, Pasta
Uncoated Paper. In the preliminary results of the anti-circumvention review of certain uncoated paper from Australia, Brazil, China, Indonesia, and Portugal, the International Trade Administration has determined that imports of uncoated paper with a GE brightness of 83 +/- 1% (83 bright paper) and otherwise meeting the description of in-scope merchandise constitute merchandise “altered in form or appearance in minor respects” from in-scope merchandise that should be considered subject to the antidumping and countervailing duty orders on certain uncoated paper.
The ITA has directed CBP to suspend liquidation and require a cash deposit of estimated duties at the applicable rate for each unliquidated entry of 83 bright paper entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after Nov. 7, 2016.
Uranium. The DOC has determined that termination of the agreement suspending the AD investigation on uranium from Russia and the suspended investigation would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The ITC will proceed with its own investigation to determine whether termination of such agreement would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. The order will be extended for an additional five years if the ITC issues an affirmative determination but will be rescinded if the ITC issues a negative determination.
Pasta. In the final results of its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on pasta from Italy, the ITA has determined that Francesco Tamma S.p.A. is not the successor-in-interest to Tamma Industrie Alimentary Capitanata S.r.l., which is excluded from this order. As a result, the AD cash deposit rate for Tamma will be 15.45 percent.
