Final Affirmative AD/CV Determinations on Certain Iron Pipe Fittings
The USITC has determined in its AD and CV injury investigations of cast iron soil pipe fittings from mainland China that (1) a U.S. industry is not materially injury or threatened with material injury by reason of imports of drain bodies from mainland China, and (2) a U.S. industry is materially injured by reason of imports of all other cast iron soil pipe fittings from mainland China. As a result, the DOC will issue AD and CV duty orders on imports of cast iron soil pipe fittings other than drain bodies from the mainland. The USITC also made a negative finding concerning critical circumstances with regard to imports of subject merchandise, which means that such imports will not be subject to retroactive AD duties.
Preliminary Affirmative AD/CV Injury Determinations on Steel Racks
The USITC has issued preliminary affirmative injury determinations in its AD and CV investigations of steel racks from mainland China. As a result, the DOC will continue its AD and CV duty investigations of imports of subject merchandise. The DOC is scheduled to issue its preliminary CV determination on or about 13 September and its preliminary AD determination on or about 27 November.
