AD/CV: Rubber Bands, Uncoated Paper, Large Diameter Pipe
Rubber Bands. The International Trade Administration has made a preliminary affirmative dumping determination on rubber bands from China and Thailand. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of such goods at the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 27.27 percent for China and zero to 5.86 percent for Thailand.
The ITA also preliminarily found that critical circumstances exist with respect to the China-wide entity. It will therefore instruct CBP to retroactively impose provisional measures on entries of rubber bands from China, effective 90 days prior to the date this preliminary determination is published in the Federal Register.
Uncoated Paper. The International Trade Commission has made final negative AD and CV injury determinations on uncoated groundwood paper from Canada. As a result, no AD or CV duty orders will be issued on this product.
Large Diameter Pipe. The ITC has scheduled the final phase of its AD/CV injury investigations of large-diameter welded pipe from Canada, China, Greece, India, Korea, and Turkey. A hearing will be held Nov. 6, requests to appear at the hearing are due by Nov. 1, pre-hearing briefs are due by Oct. 31, post-hearing briefs are due by Nov. 13, and final comments are due by Dec. 3.
