Solar Products. In the preliminary results of its administrative reviews of the antidumping duty orders on crystalline silicon photovoltaic products from China and Taiwan for the period July 31, 2014, through Jan. 31, 2016, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of 14.70 percent for China and 3.50 percent to 4.20 percent for Taiwan. The ITA has also (a) preliminarily determined that Shanghai JA Solar Technology Co. Ltd. (China) had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period and (b) rescinded this review with respect to 18 companies from Taiwan that timely withdrew their request for review.

Washers. In its sunset review of the AD duty orders on helical spring lock washers from China and Taiwan, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of up to 189.81 percent for China and 31.93 percent for Taiwan.

Steel Pipe. In its sunset review of the AD duty orders on welded ASTM A-312 stainless steel pipe from Korea and Taiwan, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping at margins of up to 17.14 percent for Korea and 31.90 percent for Taiwan.

Aluminum Extrusions. The ITC will hold an open meeting March 10 to vote in its sunset reviews of the AD and CV duty orders on aluminum extrusions from China, which will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.

Magnesium. The ITC will hold an open meeting March 15 to vote in its sunset review of the AD duty order on pure magnesium from China, which will result in either the revocation or continuation of this order.

In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on magnesium metal from China for the period April 1, 2015, through March 31, 2016, the ITA has determined that Tianjin Magnesium International Co. Ltd. and Tianjin Magnesium Metal Co. Ltd. did not have reviewable entries of subject goods to the U.S. during this period.
