The U.S. Department of Commerce announced last week that it has initiated new Administrative Reviews for sixteen antidumping duty and countervailing duty orders with August anniversary dates.
Commerce and the U.S. International Trade Commission are required by global trade rules to conduct reviews no later than five years after an AD or CDV order is issued to determine whether revoking the order would be likely to lead to the continuation or recurrence of dumping or subsidies and of material injury to domestic producers.
Countries and products named in the Federal Register notice are as follows:
- China: Certain Passenger Vehicle and Light Truck Tires (A-570-016/C-570-017); Certain Steel Nails (A-570-909); Hydrofluorocarbon Blends (A-570-028); Light-Walled Rectangular Pipe and Tube (A-570-914); Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags (A-570-886)
