Lined Paper Products. In the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on lined paper products from India for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the International Trade Administration has determined a net subsidy rate of 6.56 percent for Goldenpalm Manufacturers PVT Limited. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 18.

Oil Country Tubular Goods. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on OCTG from Korea for the period July 18, 2014, through Aug. 31, 2015, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 2.76 percent to 24.92 percent for three exporters or producers. 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goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 18.

Chlorinated Isocyanurates.
