The International Trade Administration and/or International Trade Commission have recently announced the following actions in antidumping and/or countervailing duty cases.

For more information on AD/CV duty issues, including how to mitigate liability, please contact trade attorney Kristen Smith at (202) 730-4965.

Innerspring units – determination in final results of administrative review of AD duty order on uncovered innerspring units from China for the period Feb. 1, 2018, through Jan. 31, 2019, that no exporters demonstrated eligibility for a separate rate and all are therefore part of the China-wide entity, which is currently subject to a rate of 234.51 percent

New reviews – initiation of administrative reviews of AD and/or CV duty orders on the following products for the periods Dec. 1, 2018, through Nov. 30, 2019 (AD), or Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2018 (CV), unless otherwise noted

Rebar – (a) sunset review determination that revocation of AD duty order on steel concrete reinforcing bars from Mexico would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins up to 66.7 percent and (b) initiation of changed circumstances review of rebar from Belarus to determine if that country is still a non-market economy for purposes of AD duty law (comments due by March 9)

Steel wire strand – dumping margin of zero in preliminary results of administrative review of AD duty order on pre-stressed concrete steel wire strand from Thailand for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2018
