AD/CV: Wind Towers, Clothes Washers, PTFE Resin, Silicon Metal, Steel Wire Rod
Potassium Permanganate. The International Trade Administration has rescinded its administrative review of the antidumping duty order on potassium permanganate from China for the period Jan. 1 through Dec. 31, 2017, due to the petitioner’s withdrawal of its request for review. As a result, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to assess AD duties on all entries of subject goods during this period at the AD cash deposit rates required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption.
Wind Towers. In the final results of its sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on utility scale wind towers form China and Vietnam, the ITA has determined that revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at weighted average margins up to 60.02 percent for China and 58.54 percent for Vietnam.
Clothes Washers. A request has been filed for a NAFTA panel review of the ITA’s final affirmative dumping determination on large residential washers from Mexico.
PTFE Resin. The ITA has made preliminary affirmative dumping determinations on polytetrafluoroethylene resin from China and India. The ITA will instruct CBP to require AD cash deposits at the preliminary weighted average dumping margins, which are 69.34 percent to 208.16 percent for China and 18.49 percent for India.
Silicon Metal. In its sunset review of the AD duty order on silicon metal 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 within a reasonably foreseeable time. As a result, this order will remain in place.
Steel Wire Rod. The ITC has made final affirmative AD injury determinations on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Italy, Korea, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom and final affirmative CV injury determinations on such goods from Italy and Turkey. As a result, the ITA will issue AD and/or CV duty orders on these products.
The ITC also made a negative critical circumstances determination with respect to subject goods from Spain, Turkey, and the UK. Imports from these countries will therefore not be subject to retroactive AD and/or CV duties.
