    On July 13, 2010, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determination, pursuant to section 705(d) of the Act, that an industry 
in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of 
section 705(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of subsidized imports of 
subject merchandise from the PRC. See Certain Steel Grating from China, 
Investigation Nos. 701-TA-465 and 731-TA-1161 (Final), USITC 
Publication 4168 (July 2010). Pursuant to section 706(a) of the Act, 
the Department is publishing a countervailing duty order on the subject 
merchandise.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order are certain steel grating, 
consisting of two or more pieces of steel, including load-bearing 
pieces and cross pieces, joined by any assembly process, regardless of: 
(1) size or shape; (2) method of manufacture; (3) metallurgy (carbon, 
alloy, or stainless); (4) the profile of the bars; and (5) whether or 
not they are galvanized, painted, coated, clad or plated. Steel grating 
is also commonly referred to as ``bar grating,'' although the 
components may consist of steel other than bars, such as hot-rolled 
sheet, plate, or wire rod.
    The scope of this order excludes expanded metal grating, which is 
comprised of a single piece or coil of sheet or thin plate steel that 
has been slit and expanded, and does not involve welding or joining of 
multiple pieces of steel. The scope of this order also excludes plank 
type safety grating which is comprised of a single piece or coil of 
sheet or thin plate steel, typically in thickness of 10 to 18 gauge, 
that has been pierced and cold formed, and does not involve welding or 
joining of multiple pieces of steel.
    Certain steel grating that is the subject of this order is 
currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (HTSUS) under subheading 7308.90.7000. While the HTSUS

determination, in accordance with section 706(a) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to
