SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 1, 2009, the Department published the notice of initiation of the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on SSWR from Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 74 FR 31412 (July 1, 2009). As a result of its reviews, the Department determined that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on SSWR from Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins likely to prevail should the orders be revoked. See Stainless Steel Wire Rod From Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Spain, and Taiwan: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the Antidumping Duty Orders, 74 FR 56179 (Oct. 30, 2009).

SSWR is 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 manufactured only by hot–rolling or hot–rolling, annealing, and/or pickling and/or descaling, are normally sold in coiled form, and are of solid crosssection. The majority of SSWR sold in the United States is round in crosssectional shape, annealed and pickled, and later cold–finished into stainless steel wire or small–diameter bar. The most common size for such products is 5.5 millimeters or 0.217 inches in diameter, which represents the smallest size that normally is produced on a rolling mill and is the size that most wire–drawing machines are set up to draw. The range of SSWR sizes normally sold in the United States is between 0.20 inches and 1.312 inches diameter. Two stainless steel grades, SF20T and K–M35FL, are excluded from the scope of the orders.

Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) 
that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on stainless steel wire 
rod (SSWR) from Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea (Korea), Spain, and 
Taiwan would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and 
material injury to an industry in the United States, the Department is 
publishing a notice of continuation of the antidumping duty orders.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2009, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty orders on SSWR from 
Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan pursuant to section 751(c) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Initiation of Five-
year (``Sunset'') Review, 74 FR 31412 (July 1, 2009).
    As a result of its reviews, the Department determined that 
revocation of the antidumping duty orders on SSWR from Italy, Japan, 
Korea, Spain, and Taiwan would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping and, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude 
of the margins likely to prevail should the orders be revoked. See 
Stainless Steel Wire Rod From Italy, Japan, the Republic of Korea, 
Spain, and Taiwan: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Reviews of the 
Antidumping Duty Orders, 74 FR 56179 (Oct. 30, 2009).
    On May 14, 2010, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to 
section 751(c) of the Act, that revocation of the antidumping duty 
orders on SSWR from Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan would likely 
lead to a continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry 
in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable future. See 
Stainless Steel Wire Rod From Italy, Japan, Korea, Spain, and Taiwan, 
75 FR 32503 (June 8, 2010).
