Aluminum Sheet. The International Trade Commission has made final affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on common alloy aluminum sheet from China. As a result, the ITA will issue AD and CV duty orders on this product.

However, the ITC also made negative critical circumstances determinations, meaning imports of subject goods will not be subject to retroactive AD or CV duties.

Magnesium. The ITC has made preliminary affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on magnesium from Israel. As a result, the ITA’s AD and CV duty investigations will continue, with preliminary determinations due by Jan. 17 (CV) and April 2 (AD).

Pasta. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on pasta from Italy for the period July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of zero for one company and 5.97 percent for several others. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 11.

PET Film. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on polyethylene terephthalate film, sheet, and strip from Taiwan for the period July 1, 2016, through June 30, 2017, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for Nan Ya Plastics Corporation. As a result, no AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Dec. 11.
