ITA to Require Cash Deposits in Future AD and CVD Investigations

October 3, 2011

On October 3, 2011, the International Trade Administration (ITA) issued a final rule (76 FR 61042) amending its regulations governing the effect of an affirmative preliminary determination in antidumping and countervailing duty proceedings. Under the new regulation, the posting of cash deposits will be the normal provisional measure used between the date of the affirmative preliminary determination and the date when the antidumping or countervailing duty order takes effect. Previously, ITA allowed either the posting of bond or the payment of a cash deposit during this period. The new rule will apply to all investigations initiated on the basis of petitions filed on or after November 2, 2011.
