AD/CV: R-134a, Steel Plate, Thermal Paper, Steel Nails
R-134a. The International Trade Commission will hold an open meeting March 23 to conduct a final vote in its AD injury investigation of 1,1,1,2-Tetrafluoroethane (R-134a) from China. If this vote is affirmative the International Trade Administration will issue an AD duty order.
Steel Plate. The ITA has issued AD and CV duty orders on certain carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from China. As a result, imports of subject merchandise will face for the next five years a 251 percent subsidy rate as well as a 68.27 percent dumping margin.
Thermal Paper. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the CV duty order on lightweight thermal paper from China for the period Jan. 1, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2015, because there were no entries of subject merchandise exported by the companies under review during that period.
Steel Nails. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel nails from China for the period Aug. 1, 2014, through July 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 6.22 percent for 18 companies. The ITA has also determined that one of the mandatory respondents is not eligible for a separate rate and is therefore part of the China-wide entity. Finally, the ITA has rescinded its review of four companies because the petitioner withdrew its review request.
