Aluminum Extrusions. In the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on aluminum extrusions from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the International Trade Administration has determined subsidy rates of 195.69 percent for one company and 16.08 percent for all other companies under review. The ITA has also rescinded its review of 134 companies because the review requests for those companies were timely withdrawn.

Pencils. The ITA has amended the final results of its antidumping new shipper review of cased pencils produced in China by Shandong Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. and exported by Wah Yuen Stationery Co. Ltd. to correct certain ministerial errors. Specifically, the dumping margin for Wah Yuen has been amended from 33.86 percent to 30.55 percent.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has determined that revocation of the AD duty orders on certain polyester staple fiber from Korea and Taiwan would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The International Trade Commission will proceed with its own investigation to determine whether revocation would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. The orders will be extended for an additional five years if the ITC issues an affirmative determination but will be rescinded if the ITC issues a negative determination.

Steel Pipe and Tube. In the final results of its 2014-2015 administrative review of the AD duty order on welded carbon steel standard pipe and tube products from Turkey, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero for Borusan Mannesmann Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S. and 1.91 percent for the remaining six companies under review.
