Steel Wire Rod. The ITA has issued preliminary affirmative AD duty determinations on carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Belarus, Russia, and the United Arab Emirates. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods based on the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 280.02 percent for Belarus, 436.8 percent to 756.93 percent for Russia, and 84.1 percent for the UAE.
Violet Pigment. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the CV duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 from India for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2015, based on the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess CV duties at the cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
