Hand Tools. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on heavy forged hand tools, finished or unfinished, with or without handles, from China, the ITA has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of 15.02 percent to 50.81 percent.
Steel Plate. In its sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on stainless steel plate in coils from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins up to 8.54 percent for Belgium, 41.63 percent for South Africa, and 10.20 percent for Taiwan.
