Frozen Fish. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on frozen fish fillets from Vietnam for the period Aug. 1, 2015, through July 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of 3.87 percent to 7.74 percent for several exporters. AD duties based on these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after March 23.

The ITA also (a) determined that two companies had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review and (b) rescinded this review with respect to three companies.

Steel Wire Rod. The ITA has made final affirmative AD duty determinations on carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Italy, Korea, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom and final affirmative CV duty determinations on such goods from Italy and Turkey. Final weighted average dumping margins are 12.41 percent to 18.89 percent for Italy, 41.10 percent for Korea, 11.08 percent to 32.64 percent for Spain, 4.74 percent to 7.94 percent for Turkey, and 147.63 percent for the UK. Final net subsidy rates are 4.16 percent to 44.18 percent for Italy and 3.81 percent to 3.86 percent for Turkey.

Stainless Steel Flanges. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on stainless steel flanges from China and India.

Final determinations are due by June 5.
