AD/CV Notices: Sugar, Calcium Hypochlorite, Lawn Groomers
Sugar. Two petitions filed Jan. 8 request that the International Trade Commission review recent agreements to suspend the United States’ antidumping and countervailing investigations of sugar from Mexico. The petitions, which reportedly are the first of their kind filed with the ITC, assert that “a serious question exists whether the injurious effect of subject merchandise is ‘eliminated completely’ by these agreements as written.”
Calcium Hypochlorite. The ITC has issued final affirmative AD and CV injury determinations on calcium hypochlorite from China. As a result, the International Trade Administration will issue AD and CV duty orders on this merchandise.
Lawn Groomers. The ITC determined Jan. 12 that revoking the AD duty order on tow-behind lawn groomers and parts thereof from China would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place for another five years.
