Quartz Surface Products. The ITA has made a preliminary determination in its CV duty investigation of quartz surface products from China that critical circumstances exist with respect to two exporters. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to suspend liquidation of any unliquidated entries of subject goods from these exporters that were entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after June 23, 2018, and to require CV cash deposits on such entries at the preliminary net subsidy rates established for these exporters.
Steel Threaded Rod. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on steel threaded rod from China for the period April 1, 2016, through March 31, 2017, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 206.00 percent. AD duties based on this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Nov. 15.
Diamond Sawblades. The ITA has made a preliminary determination that imports of diamond sawblades comprised of cores and segments produced in China and joined into diamond sawblades in, and exported from, Thailand by Diamond Tools Technology (Thailand) Co. Ltd. are circumventing the AD duty order on diamond sawblades and parts thereof from China. As a result, the ITA will direct CBP to suspend liquidation of, and require AD cash deposits at the China-wide rate of 82.05 percent for, unliquidated entries of such goods that were entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 1, 2017.
