Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on polyethylene retail carrier bags from Malaysia for the period Aug. 1, 2016, through July 31, 2017, the International Trade Administration has determined that Euro SME Sdh Bhd had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period.

Polyester Staple Fiber. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on polyester staple fiber from China, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will be continued.
