Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by both antidumping duty orders are certain 
helical spring lock washers of carbon steel, of carbon alloy steel, or 
of stainless steel, heat-treated or non-heat-treated, plated or non-
plated, with ends that are off-line. Certain helical spring lock 
washers are designed to: (1) function as a spring to compensate for 
developed looseness between the component parts of a fastened assembly; 
(2) distribute the load over a larger area for screws or bolts; and (3) 
provide a hardened bearing surface. The scope does not include internal 
or external tooth washers, nor does it include spring lock washers made 
of other metals, such as copper.
    Certain helical spring lock washers subject to these orders are 
currently classifiable under subheading 7318.21.0030 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). Although the HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive.
    On September 30, 1997, the Department determined that certain 
helical spring lock washers which are imported into the United States 
in an uncut, coil form are within the scope of the orders. See Notice 
of Scope Rulings, 62 FR 62288 (November 21, 1997).

Determination

    As a result of the determinations by the Department and the ITC 
that revocation of these antidumping duty orders would likely lead to 
continuation or recurrence of dumping, and material injury to an 
industry in the United States, pursuant to section 751(d)(2) of the 
Act, the Department hereby orders the continuation of the antidumping 
duty orders on certain helical spring lock washers from the PRC and 
Taiwan.
    U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect 
antidumping duty cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of 
entry for all imports of subject merchandise.
    The effective date of continuation of these orders will be the date 
of publication in the Federal Register of this Notice of Continuation. 
Pursuant to sections 751(c)(2) and 751(c)(6)(A) of the Act, the 
Department intends to initiate the next five-year reviews of these 
orders not later than June 2011.
