Summary: The DOC has initiated separate administrative reviews of the following AD duty orders for the period 1 December 2015 through 30 November 2016: certain cased pencils (A-570-827); crystalline photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (A-570-979); honey (A-570-863); malleable cast iron pipe fittings (A-570-881); and multi-layered wood flooring (A-570-970). The DOC has also launched reviews of the AD duty orders on seamless refined copper pipe and tube (A-570-964) and fresh garlic (A-570-831) for the period 1 November 2015 through 31 October 2016, as well as the CV duty orders on crystalline photovoltaic cells, whether or not assembled into modules (C-570-980) and multi-layered wood flooring (C-570-971) for the period 1 January through 31 December 2015. These reviews are scheduled to be completed by 31 December 2017 and could result in (a) revised AD/CV duty assessments for entries of subject merchandise made during the applicable period of review and (b) revised AD/CV duty cash deposit rates for entries made after completion of the review.

Product: Glycine, classified under HTSUS subheading 2922.49.4020.
Nature of Notice: Continuation of AD duty order A-570-836, effective 15 February 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-02-15/pdf/2017-03048.pdf)
Summary: The USITC determined on 18 January that revocation of the AD duty order on subject merchandise would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the U.S. within a reasonably foreseeable time. Accordingly, the DOC has extended the order for an additional five years.

Product: Wooden bedroom furniture, classified under HTSUS subheadings 7009.92.1000, 7009.92.5000, 9403.20.0018, 9403.50.9041, 9403.50.9042, 9403.50.9045, 9403.50.9080 and 9403.60.8081.
Nature of Notice:
Final results of administrative review and final partial determination of no shipments in AD investigation A-570-890, effective 15 February 2017.

Summary: The DOC has determined that seven of 18 companies under review for the period 1 January through 31 December 2015 have not established their entitlement to a separate rate and are therefore part of the China-wide entity, subject to a 216.01 percent dumping margin. The DOC has further determined that the remaining eleven companies had no reviewable transactions during the period of review.

Product: Certain crystalline silicon photovoltaic products, classified under HTSUS subheadings 8501.61.0000, 8507.20.8030, 8507.20.8040, 8507.20.8060, 8507.20.8090, 8541.40.6020, 8541.40.6030 and 8501.31.8000.
Nature of Notice: Preliminary results of changed circumstances review and intent to partially revoke AD and CV duty orders in AD investigation A-570-010 and CV investigation C-570-011, effective 16 February 2017.

Summary: The DOC has preliminarily determined that the producers accounting for substantially all of the production of the domestic like product to which the orders pertain lack interest in the relief provided with respect to certain solar panels that are incorporated in certain battery charging and maintaining units. Specifically, this determination covers solar panels that are (1) less than 300,000 mm2 in surface area; (2) less than 27.1 watts in power; (3) coated across their entire surface with a polyurethane doming resin; and (4) joined to a battery charging and maintaining unit (which is an acrylonitrile butadiene styrene box that incorporates a light emitting diode) by coated wires that include a connector to permit the incorporation of an extension cable. The battery charging and maintaining unit utilises high-frequency triangular pulse waveforms designed to maintain and extend the life of batteries through the reduction of lead sulphate crystals. These battery charging and maintaining units are currently available under the registered trademark ‘‘SolarPulse.’’ Accordingly, the DOC intends to revoke the AD and CV orders with respect to these products.

Product: Small diameter graphite electrodes, classified under HTSUS subheadings 3801.10, 8545.11.0010 and 8545.11.0020.
Nature of Notice: Final results of administrative review in AD investigation A-570-929, effective 16 February 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-02-16/pdf/2017-03141.pdf)
Summary: The DOC has determined in its administrative review for the period 1 February 2015 through 31 January 2016 that Fangda Group, Fushun Jinly Petrochemical Co. Ltd. and Jilin Carbon Import and Export had no shipments of subject merchandise during that period. Therefore, any entries of subject merchandise from these companies will be liquidated at the current China-wide rate of 159.64 percent.

Product: Xanthan gum, classified under HTSUS subheading 3913.90.20.
Nature of Notice: Final results of administrative review, final determination of no shipments and final partial rescission in AD investigation A-570-985, effective 23 February 2017.
Link: (https://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/FR-2017-02-23/pdf/2017-03504.pdf)
Summary: The DOC has established the following dumping margins for imports of subject merchandise during the period 1 July 2014 through 30 June 2015. CBP will assess AD duties on all appropriate entries using these rates, which will also be used to determine new AD cash deposit requirements. CBP will not assess AD duties or impose cash deposit requirements on entries subject to a zero rate.
