SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 1993, the Department published an antidumping duty 
order on wire rods from India. See Antidumping Duty Order: Certain 
Stainless Steel Wire Rods from India, 58 FR 63335 (December 1, 1993). 
On August 4, 2008, the Department received a request for a changed-
circumstances review of this order from India Steel to determine if, 
for purposes of the antidumping law, India Steel is the successor-in-
interest to Isibars.
    On September 25, 2008, the Department published the notice of 
initiation for this changed-circumstances review and preliminarily 
found that India Steel is the successor-in-interest to Isibars and 
should be treated as such for antidumping duty cash-deposit purposes. 
See Notice of Initiation and Preliminary Results of Changed 
Circumstances Antidumping Duty Review: Stainless Steel Wire Rods from 
India, 73 FR 55498 (September 25, 2008). We invited parties to comment 
on the preliminary results but received no comments or requests for a 
hearing.

Scope of the Review

    The merchandise under review is wire rods, which are hot-rolled or 
hot-rolled annealed and/or pickled rounds, squares, octagons, hexagons 
or other shapes, in coils. Wire rods are made of alloy steels 
containing, by weight, 1.2 percent or less of carbon and 10.5 percent 
or more of chromium, with or without other elements. These products are 
only manufactured by hot-rolling and are normally sold in coiled form, 
and are of solid cross section. The majority of wire rods sold in the 
United States are round in cross-section shape, annealed, and pickled. 
The most common size is 5.5 millimeters in diameter.
    The wire rods subject to this order are currently classifiable 
under subheadings 7221.00.0005, 7221.00.0015, 7221.00.0030,

convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the 
merchandise subject to the order is dispositive of whether the 
merchandise is covered by the order.

Final Results of Changed-Circumstances Review

    For the reasons stated in the preliminary results and because the 
Department did not receive any comments on the preliminary results of 
this review, the Department continues to find that India Steel is the 
successor-in-interest to Isibars for antidumping duty cash-deposit 
purposes.

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) to suspend liquidation of all shipments of the subject

from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of

2005)). This deposit rate shall remain in effect until publication of 
the final results of the next administrative review in which India 
Steel participates.
