- cut-to-length carbon steel from Russia (AD; suspension agreement)
Steel Plate. The International Trade Commission has made final affirmative AD injury determinations on carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Brazil, South Africa, and Turkey. As a result, the ITA will issue AD duty orders on these goods.
The ITC made negative critical circumstances determinations on subject goods from Brazil and Turkey, meaning that such goods that entered the U.S. prior to Sept. 22, 2016, will not be subject to retroactive AD duties.
Softwood Lumber. The ITC has made preliminary affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on softwood lumber products from Canada. As a result, the ITA will continue its AD and CV duty investigations, with preliminary determinations due by Feb. 20 (CV) and May 4 (AD).
Geogrid Products. The ITA has made final affirmative AD and CV duty determinations on biaxial integral geogrid products from China. The dumping margin for both mandatory respondents and the China-wide entity is 372.81 percent, and the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at this rate. The subsidy rates range from 15.61 percent to 152.50 percent, but CV cash deposits at these rates will only be required if the ITC makes final affirmative CV injury determinations.
