Citric Acid. The International Trade Administration has made final affirmative dumping determinations on citric acid and certain citrate salts from Belgium, Colombia, and Thailand, as well as a final negative determination in the CV investigation of subject merchandise from Thailand. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on subject goods at the following rates: 19.30 percent for Belgium, 28.48 percent for Colombia, and 6.47 percent to 15.71 percent for Thailand.

Ribbon. The ITA has made a preliminary affirmative CV duty determination on plastic decorative ribbon from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to require CV cash deposits at the preliminary net subsidy rates, which range from 12.81 percent to 94.67 percent.

Quartz Surface Products. The International Trade Commission has made preliminary affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on quartz surface products from China. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD and CV investigations of subject merchandise.

Steel Sheet. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on tin- and chromium-coated steel sheet from Japan, the ITC has determined that the 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, the order will remain in place.

Tool Chests/Cabinets. The ITA has issued AD duty orders on certain tool chests and cabinets from China and Vietnam. As a result, subject merchandise will face AD cash deposit rates of 93.94 percent or 241.12 percent in the case of China and 327.17 percent in the case of Vietnam.

Silicon Metal. The AD duty order on silicon metal from China has been renewed following separate determinations by the ITA and the ITC that revocation of this order would have likely resulted in the continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to a domestic industry.
