Mechanical Tubing. The International Trade Administration has made final affirmative dumping determinations on cold-drawn mechanical tubing from China, Germany, India, Italy, Korea, and Switzerland. Once these determinations are published, the ITA will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect AD cash deposits on entries of subject goods at the applicable weighted average dumping margins, which are 44.90 percent to 186.89 percent for China, 3.11 percent to 209.06 percent for Germany, 5.87 percent to 33.80 percent for India, 47.87 percent to 68.95 percent for Italy, 30.67 percent to 48.0 percent for Korea, and 12.05 percent to 30.48 percent for Switzerland.
The ITA also found that critical circumstances exist for two companies from Italy, all companies from South Korea, and all companies from China except one. As a result, the ITA will instruct CBP to impose provisional measures retroactively on entries of subject goods from these companies effective 90 days prior to the publication of the preliminary determinations in the Federal Register.
Violet Pigment. In the final results of its administrative review of the AD duty order on carbazole violet pigment 23 from India for the period Dec. 1, 2015, through Nov. 30, 2016, the ITA has determined a weighted average dumping margin of 49.57 percent for Pidilite Industries Limited. AD duties at this rate will be assessed on entries of subject goods during the period of review, and AD cash deposits at this rate will be required for subject goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after April 12.
Rubber Bands. The ITA has postponed from April 26 to July 2 its preliminary countervailing duty determinations on rubber bands from China and Thailand. The petitioner requested this delay to provide the ITA with adequate time to determine the extent to which countervailable subsidies are used by the respondents.
