Lemon Juice. The International Trade Administration is continuing to suspend its AD duty investigation of lemon juice from Argentina based on the agreement of signatory producers/exporters accounting for substantially all such imports to revise their prices to completely eliminate the injurious effects of such imports into the U.S.

Wood Flooring. The ITA has rescinded its new shipper reviews of the AD duty order on multilayered wood flooring from China after having determined that the sales of subject goods by Zhangshi Wood Industry Co. Ltd. and Huzhou Muyun Wood Co. Ltd. are not bona fide and therefore do not provide a reasonable or reliable basis for calculating a dumping margin. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to discontinue the option of posting a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for entries of subject goods from these companies and to continue to collect AD cash deposits at the China-wide rate of 25.62 percent.

Stainless Steel Bar. In its changed circumstances review of the AD duty order on stainless steel bar from Spain, the ITA has preliminarily determined that Sidenor Aceros Especiales S.L. is the successor-in-interest to Gerdau Aceros Especiales Europa for purposes of determining AD duty liability.

Ammonium Sulfate. The ITA has made an affirmative preliminary CV duty determination on ammonium sulfate from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to require CV cash deposits on entries of subject goods based on the preliminary subsidy rate of 206.72 percent.

Pressure Pipe. The International Trade Commission has made affirmative final AD and CV injury determinations on welded stainless steel pressure pipe from India. As a result, the ITA will issue AD and CV duty orders on this product.
