Steel Wire Rod. The ITA has made final affirmative dumping determinations on carbon and alloy steel wire rod from South Africa and Ukraine. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the final weighted average dumping margins, which are 135.46 percent to 142.26 percent for South Africa and 34.98 percent to 44.03 percent for Ukraine.
The ITA also made a final affirmative critical circumstances determination with respect to the collapsed entity of the Scaw Metals Group and Consolidated Wire Industries as well as all other producers/exporters in South Africa. The ITA will therefore instruct CBP to impose provisional measures on entries of subject goods from these entities retroactive to 90 days prior to publication of the preliminary determinations in the Federal Register.
Groundwood Paper. The ITA has made a preliminary affirmative CV duty determination on uncoated groundwood paper from Canada. The ITA will instruct CBP to require CV cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the preliminary subsidy rates, which range from 0.65 percent to 9.93 percent.
