Steel Wire Rod. In the preliminary results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and alloy steel wire rod from Mexico for the period Oct. 1, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2017, the International Trade Administration has determined weighted average dumping margins of 17.65 percent and 40.52 percent for two companies. The ITA has also preliminarily determined that another company had no shipments of subject goods to the U.S. during this period.

Hot-Rolled Steel. In the preliminary results of its administrative reviews of the AD duty orders on hot-rolled steel flat products from Australia, Japan, Turkey, and Korea for the period March 22, 2016, through Sept. 30, 2017, the ITA has determined weighted average dumping margins of 99.2 percent for Australia, 0.54 percent to 7.64 percent for Japan, zero for Turkey, and 3.95 percent to 7.67 percent for Korea.

Uncoated Paper. The ITA has rescinded its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on uncoated paper from Indonesia for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2017, due to the timely withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess CV duties on entries of subject goods during this period at the CV cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.

The ITA has also amended the final results of its 2015 administrative review of this order to specify a net subsidy rate of 11.73 percent for one company. The ITA will instruct CBP to assess CV duties at this rate on entries of subject goods from this company during 2015.

Clothes Washers. In the preliminary results of its changed circumstances reviews of the AD duty orders on large residential washers from Korea and Mexico and the CV duty order on such washers from Korea, the ITA has determined not to revoke these orders with respect to washers that (1) have a horizontal rotational axis, (2) are front loading, and (3) have a drive train consisting of, among other things, a controlled induction motor and a belt drive.
