Chlorinated Isocyanurates. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from China for the period June 1, 2015, through May 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of 16.06 percent for Heze Huayi Chemical Co. Ltd. and 24.82 percent for Juancheng Kangtai Chemical co. Ltd. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Feb. 6.

Citric Acid. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on citric acid and certain citrate salts from Canada for the period May 1, 2016, through April 30, 2017, the ITA has determined that sales of subject goods by producer/exporter Jungbunzlauer Canada Inc. were not made at prices below normal value.

Steel Wire Rod. The ITA has initiated an inquiry to determine whether imports of carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Mexico with actual diameters that are less than 4.75 mm, produced and/or exported to the U.S. by Deacero S.A.P.I de C.V., are circumventing the AD duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Mexico. The petitioner alleges that such narrow-gauge wire rod constitutes merchandise altered in form or appearance in such minor respects that it should be included within the scope of this order.

Pipes and Tubes. Effective Feb. 7, the ITA has continued the AD and/or CV duty orders on the following products.

- welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from India (AD), Thailand (AD), and Turkey (AD/CV)

- welded non-alloy steel pipe from Brazil, Korea, Mexico, and Taiwan (AD)

- circular welded carbon steel pipes and tubes from Taiwan (AD)

Granular Magnesium. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on pure granular magnesium from China, the International Trade Commission determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place.
