AD/CV: Wind Towers, PTFE Resin, Garlic
Wind Towers. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on utility scale wind towers from China for the period Feb. 1, 2016, through Jan. 31, 2017, based on the withdrawal of the request for review. The ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on entries of subject goods during this period at the AD cash deposit rates in effect at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
PTFE Resin. The ITA has initiated AD duty investigations of polytetrafluoroethylene resin from China and India and a CV duty investigation of PTFE resin from India. Estimated dumping margins are 23.4 percent to 408.9 percent for China and 15.8 percent to 128.1 percent for India. The ITA’s preliminary determinations are due by Dec. 22 (CV) and March 7 (AD).
Garlic. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on fresh garlic from China, the International Trade Commission has determined that revocation of this order would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place.
