Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Trinidad and Tobago; Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review
On November 27, 2006, the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and alloy steel wire rod (``wire rod'') from Trinidad and Tobago for the period of review (``POR'') October 1, 2005, through September 30, 2006. We preliminarily determine that during the POR, Mittal Steel Point Lisas Limited (``MSPL'') and its affiliates Mittal Steel North America Inc. (``MSNA'') and Mittal Walker Wire Inc. (collectively ``Mittal'') did not make sales of subject merchandise at less than normal value (``NV'') (i.e., sales were made at de minimis dumping margins). If these preliminary results are adopted in the final results of this administrative review, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. The Department will issue the final results within 120 days after publication of the preliminary results.
Polyvinyl Alcohol from the People's Republic of China: Notice of Court Decision Not In Harmony with Final Determination
On May 30, 2007, the United States Court of International Trade (``Court'') sustained the final remand determination made by the Department of Commerce (``the Department'') pursuant to the Court's remand of the final determination of sales at less than fair value of polyvinyl alcohol from the People's Republic of China. See Sinopec Sichuan Vinylon Works v. United States, Court No. 03-00791, Slip Op. 07-88 (CIT May 30, 2007) (``Sinopec IV''). This case arises out of the Department's Notice of Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Polyvinyl Alcohol from the People's Republic of China 68 FR 47538 (Aug. 11, 2003)(``Final Determination''), as amended by Notice of Amended Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value: Polyvinyl Alcohol From the People's Republic of China 68 FR 52183 (Sept. 2, 2003) (``Amended Final Determination''). The final judgment in this case was not in harmony with the Department's Final Determination and Amended Final Determination.
