Chlorinated Isocyanurates. In the preliminary results of its 2014 administrative review of the countervailing duty order on chlorinated isocyanurates from China the International Trade Administration has determined net subsidy rates of 1.04 percent for Heze Huayi Chemical Co. Ltd. and 20.94 percent for Hebei Jiheng Chemical Co. Ltd. The ITA also preliminarily intends to rescind this review with respect to Kangtai Chemical Co. Ltd. because it had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during the period of review.

Steel Sinks. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on drawn stainless steel sinks for the period April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016, with respect to 19 companies based on the timely withdrawal of the requests for review of those companies. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all appropriate entries of subject goods from these companies at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

Potassium Permanganate. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on potassium permanganate from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of $4.03/kg for exporter Pacific Accelerator Limited.

A hearing will be held April 27, 2017, requests to appear at the hearing are due by April 17, pre-hearing briefs are due by April 14, post-hearing briefs are due by May 8, and final comments are due by June 1.
