Hand Trucks. The International Trade Commission has scheduled an expedited sunset review of the AD duty order on hand trucks from China. Written comments are due by July 6.


Woven Electric Blankets. Effective July 1, both the ITA and the ITC will initiate sunset reviews of the AD duty order on woven electric blankets from China. These reviews will determine whether revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. At the conclusion of these reviews the order will either be revoked or continued for five years.


Fresh Garlic. In its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China, the ITA has preliminarily determined that Jinxiang County Shanfu Frozen Co. Ltd. (Shanfu II) is not the successor-in-interest to an entity of the same name (Shanfu I). Specifically, the ITA found that material changes occurred after Shanfu I dissolved and Shanfu II was registered, including changes in management, business scope, production facilities, supplier relationships, and ownership/legal structure with respect to the production and sale of the subject goods.

If the ITA upholds these preliminary results, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of entries of fresh garlic made by Shanfu II and exported by Jining Yongjuia Trade Co. Ltd., effective on the publication date of the final results, at the current China-wide cash deposit rate ($4.71 per kilogram).

Comments on the preliminary results are due by July 29.
