In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on uncoated paper from Brazil for the period Aug. 27, 2015, through Feb. 28, 2017, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 17.39 percent for exporter/producer Suzano Papel e Celulose S.A.

In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on uncoated paper from Indonesia for the period June 29, 2015, through Dec. 31, 2016, the ITA has determined net subsidy rates of 15.09 percent for 2015 and 4.13 percent for 2016 for the reviewed companies.
