Glycine. The ITC has instituted a sunset review of the AD duty order on glycine from China, which will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order. Written submissions are due by Aug. 31.
Geogrid Products. The International Trade Administration has amended its preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determination on biaxial geogrid products from China to specify amended subsidy rates of 5.19 percent to 119.13 percent.
Corrosion-Resistant Steel. The ITA has issued AD duty orders on corrosion-resistant steel products from China, India, Italy, Korea and Taiwan and CV duty orders on such goods from China, India, Italy and Korea, effective July 25.
The ITA will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Jan. 4, 2016, and to require AD cash deposits at the weighted average dumping margins, which are 209.97 percent for China, 3.05 percent to 4.43 percent for India, 12.63 percent to 92.12 percent for Italy, 8.75 percent to 47.80 percent for Korea, and 10.34 percent for Taiwan.

The ITA will also direct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation of subject goods for CV purposes, assess CV duties at the net countervailable subsidy rates (except where they are de minimis) and require CV cash deposits at those rates, which are 39.05 percent to 241.07 percent for China, 8.00 percent to 29.49 percent for India, 0.07 percent to 38.51 percent for Italy, and 0.72 percent to 1.19 percent for Korea.
