Hand Tools. The International Trade Commission has scheduled an expedited sunset review of the antidumping duty order on heavy forged hand tools from China. Written comments are due by Nov. 1 but the ITC has determined to extend the review period by up to 90 days because this review is extraordinarily complicated.

Steel Plate. The ITC has scheduled expedited sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel plate from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan and the CV duty order on stainless steel plate from South Africa. Written comments are due by Nov. 1 but the ITC has determined to extend the review period by up to 90 days because these reviews are extraordinarily complicated.

Graphite Electrodes. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on small diameter graphite electrodes from China for the period Feb. 1, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined that the Fangda Group, Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Co. Ltd., and Jilin Carbon Import and Export Company had no shipments of subject goods during this period.

Wind Towers. The ITA has rescinded its administrative reviews of the AD duty orders on utility scale wind towers from China and Vietnam for the period Feb. 1, 2015, through Jan. 31, 2016, based on the withdrawal of the request for reviews. 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.

Steel Sheet and Strip. The ITA has postponed to Feb. 1, 2017, its final AD duty determination on stainless steel sheet and strip from China and is extending the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months.
