Tool Chests and Cabinets. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative CV duty determinations on tool chests and cabinets from China. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect CV cash deposits from importers of subject goods based on the preliminary net subsidy rates, which range from 17.32 percent to 32.07 percent.
Steel Cylinders. The International Trade Commission has scheduled an expedited sunset review of the AD and CV duty orders on high-pressure steel cylinders from China. Written comments are due by Sept. 26. This review will result in either the revocation or continuation of these orders.
Brightening Agents. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on stilbenic optical brightening agents from Taiwan for the period May 1, 2015, through April 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of zero for Teh Fong Ming International Co. Ltd. No AD duties will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and no AD cash deposits will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after Sept. 13.
Rebar. The ITC has made a final affirmative AD injury determination on steel concrete reinforcing bar from Taiwan. As a result, the ITA will soon issue an AD duty order on this product.
