Solar Products. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from Taiwan for the period Feb. 1, 2016, through Jan. 31, 2017, the International Trade Administration has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 1.07 percent for ten manufacturers or exporters. The ITA is also rescinding this review with respect to 23 companies that timely withdrew their requests for review.

Polyester Staple Fiber. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on fine denier polyester staple fiber from China, India, Korea, and Taiwan. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to require AD cash deposits at rates of 52.66 percent to 170.92 percent for China, zero to 15.66 percent for India, zero to 45.23 percent for Korea, and zero to 48.86 percent for Taiwan. The ITA’s final determinations are due by May 11, 2018.

Steel Wire Rod. The International Trade Commission has made affirmative final AD injury determinations on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Belarus, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates. As a result, the ITA will issue AD duty orders on such goods. The ITC also made a negative critical circumstances determination with respect to Russia; as a result, imports of subject goods from Russia will not be subject to retroactive AD duties.
