Magnesia Carbon Bricks. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the CV duty order on magnesia carbon bricks from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, because it has found no evidence of any reviewable entries.

Pasta. In the final results of its changed circumstances review of the AD and CV duty orders on pasta from Italy the ITA has determined that the organic pasta certification submission requirement should be converted to a recordkeeping requirement. Under this requirement both the exporter and the importer are required to (a) maintain a copy of the original European Union authorized body certification in their respective records, as well as documentation supporting the certification that would be subject to verification by the U.S. government, and (b) submit the certification in response to a request from CBP or the ITA in the form or manner required by the requesting agency (i.e., electronically or otherwise). Additionally, the certification must be issued, signed, and dated prior to the exportation from Italy. Entries for which an exporter or importer is unable to produce the required certification and/or supporting documentation upon request by CBP or the ITA may be subject to AD or CV duties.

Steel Pipe. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on circular welded carbon-quality steel pipe from China for the period July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, due to the timely withdrawal of the request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Granular PTFE. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on granular polytetrafluoroethylene resin from Italy for the period Aug. 1, 2015, through July 18, 2016, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Garment Hangers. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel wire garment hangers from China for the period Oct. 1, 2015, through Sept. 30, 2016, with respect to 42 companies based on the timely withdrawal of the requests for review of those companies. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Bearings. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the AD duty order on tapered roller bearings and parts thereof, finished and unfinished, from China for the period June 1, 2015, through May 31, 2016, with respect to two companies based on the timely withdrawal of the requests for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
