Off-Road Tires. In the final results of its administrative review of the countervailing duty order on new pneumatic off-the-road tires from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2014, the International Trade Administration has determined net subsidy rates of 34.46 percent to 46.01 percent. CV duties at these rates will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at these rates will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 18.

Oil Country Tubular Goods. In the final results of its administrative review of the CV duty order on OCTG from India for the period Dec. 23, 2013, through Dec. 31, 2014, the ITA has determined a net subsidy rate of 14.41 percent for manufacturer/exporter Jindal SAW Ltd. CV duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and CV cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 18.

Citric Acid. In the final results of its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on citric acid and citrate salts from Canada for the period May 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for producer/exporter Jungbunzlauer Canada Inc. As a result, no AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods from JBL during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods from JBL that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 18.

Biodiesel. The ITA has initiated AD and CV duty investigations of biodiesel from Argentina and Indonesia. Alleged dumping margins are 26.54 percent for Argentina and 28.11 percent for Indonesia.

The scope of these investigations covers biodiesel, a fuel comprised of mono-alkyl esters of long chain fatty acids derived from vegetable oils or animal fats, including biologically-based waste oils or greases, and other biologically-based oil or fat sources. The investigations cover biodiesel in pure form (B100) as well as fuel mixtures containing at least 99 percent biodiesel by volume (B99). B100 is currently classifiable under HTSUS 3826.00.1000 and B99 is currently classifiable under HTSUS 3826.00.3000.
