USITC Notices

AD/CV Duty Orders on Solar Cells Renewed. The USITC has issued a final affirmative injury determination in its sunset reviews of the AD and CV duty orders on crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells and modules from mainland China. As a result, these orders will be extended for another five years.

Initiation of Sunset Reviews of AD/CV Duty Orders on Various Products. The USITC has initiated separate sunset reviews of the AD duty orders on persulfates and steel wire garment hangers as well as the AD and CV duty orders on laminated woven sacks from mainland China. The reviews will seek to determine whether revocation of these orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to a domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. Interested parties must respond to the applicable notice of initiation by 6 March to be assured of consideration. Comments on the adequacy of these responses must be filed by 16 April. The USITC will then assess the adequacy of interested party responses to determine whether to conduct a full or expedited sunset review. As opposed to expedited reviews, full reviews include a public hearing and the issuance of questionnaires.

New Section 337 Investigation on Pocket Lighters.

The products at issue in the investigation are pocket lighters that include an oblong body that is elliptical in cross-section, a fork that is generally parabolic in cross-section, and/or a hood that is generally parabolic in cross-section.
