See Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Gray Portland Cement and Clinker From Mexico, 70 FR 54013 (Preliminary Results). We invited parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. On October 13, 2005, we received case briefs from the petitioner, the Southern Tier Cement Committee, Holcim Inc., a domestic interested party, and from the respondents, CEMEX, S.A. de C.V. (CEMEX), and GCC Cemento, S.A. de C.V. (GCCC). Scope of the Order The products covered by this order include gray portland cement and PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2909 clinker. Gray portland cement is a hydraulic cement and the primary component of concrete. Clinker, an intermediate material product produced when manufacturing cement, has no use other than being ground into finished cement. Gray portland cement is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item number 2523.29 and cement clinker is currently classifiable under HTSUS item number 2523.10. Gray portland cement has also been entered under HTSUS item number 2523.90 as ‘‘other hydraulic cements.’’ The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only. The Department’s written description remains dispositive as to the scope of the product coverage. Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this administrative review, and to which we have responded, are listed in the Appendix to this notice and addressed in the ‘‘Issues and Decision Memo’’ (Decision Memo) from Stephen J. Claeys, Deputy Assistant Secretary, to David M. Spooner, Assistant Secretary for Import Administration, dated January 11, 2006, which is hereby adopted by this notice.
