Commerce delays final ruling on Russian FeSi dumping 

The US Department of Commerce has postponed the date on which it will publish its final determination in the antidumping investigation on Russian ferrosilicon to July 24 from May 25, according to a notice published by the International Trade Administration in the March 24 edition of the Federal Register.

On March 11, Commerce's preliminary determination was published in the Federal Register, in which the department gave imports of ferrosilicon from Russia a zero margin, although Commerce's decision was made public on March 5.

On March 7, US domestic producers Globe Specialty Metals and CC Metals and Alloys requested a postponement of the final determination. 

In its preliminary determination, Commerce also assigned a dumping margin of 27.27% on ferrosilicon imports from Venezuela. The final determination for Venezuelan ferrosilicon is due at the same time as the revised date for Russia.
