SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—The final phase of these investigations is being scheduled as a result of affirmative preliminary determinations by the Department of Commerce that certain benefits which constitute subsidies within the meaning of section 703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China of wire decking, and that such supports, that reinforce the wire mesh and that are welded or otherwise affixed to the wire mesh, regardless of whether the wire mesh and supports are assembled or unassembled and whether shipped as a kit or packaged separately. Wire decking is produced from carbon or alloy steel wire that has been welded into a mesh pattern. The wire may be galvanized or plated (e.g., chrome, zinc or nickel coated), coated (e.g., with paint, epoxy, or plastic), or uncoated (‘‘raw’’). The wire may be drawn or rolled and may have a round, square or other profile. Wire decking is sold in a variety of wire gauges. The wire diameters used in the decking mesh are 0.105 inches or greater for round wire. For wire other than round wire, the distance between any two points on a cross-section of the wire is 0.105 inches or greater. Wire decking reinforced with structural supports is designed generally for industrial and other commercial storage rack systems. Wire decking is produced to various profiles, including, but not limited to, a flat (‘‘flush’’) profile, an upward curved back edge profile (‘‘backstop’’) or downward curved edge profile (‘‘waterfalls’’), depending on the rack storage system. The wire decking may or may not be anchored to the rack storage system. The scope does not cover the metal rack storage system, comprised of metal uprights and cross beams, on which the wire decking is ultimately installed. Also excluded from the scope is wire mesh shelving that is not reinforced with structural supports and is designed for use without structural supports.’’ E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 28JAN1 mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 18 / Thursday, January 28, 2010 / Notices products are being sold in the United States at less than fair value within the meaning of section 733 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b).
