Interested parties are invited to comment on these preliminary results. We will issue the final results no later than 120 days from the publication of this notice. In response to Ivaco’s January 12, 2006, response to the Department’s original Section A questionnaire, notifying the Department that the assets of Ivaco, Inc. and all of its divisions (e.g., Sivaco Ontario, and Sivaco Quebec) had been purchased, the Department is self–initiating a changed circumstances review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod from Canada.
