Brightening Agents. In its sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on stilbenic optical brightening agents from China and Taiwan, the International Trade Administration has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of up to 106.17 percent for China and 6.19 percent for Taiwan.

Stainless Steel Sinks. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2016, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods at the CV cash deposit rate required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Garlic. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at a weighted average dumping margin of 376.67 percent.

In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip from India for the period July 1, 2015, through June 30, 2016, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero for SRF Limited and 2.34 percent for Jindal Poly Films Limited of India.
