SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—In July 2008, the Commission determined that an industry in the United States was materially injured by reason of subsidized imports of light-walled rectangular pipe and tube (‘‘LWR pipe and tube’’) from China, and imports of LWR pipe and tube from China, Korea, and Mexico that were found to be sold at less than fair value. Nacional de Acero S. A. De C. V. subsequently challenged the Commission’s determination concerning imports from Mexico, under the binational panel procedures set out in Chapter 19 of the North American Free Trade Agreement (‘‘NAFTA’’). A NAFTA Panel issued an opinion in the matter on November 26, 2010. In its opinion, the Panel remanded the matter to the Commission with instructions that the Commission address: (I) the relationship between the 2008 announced price increases and the pendency of the investigation, and SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 (II) the Complainant’s attempt to rebut the presumption that any market changes in 2008 were the result of the filing of the petition and Commerce’s preliminary affirmative determinations. In all other respects the Panel affirmed the Commission’s opinion. Participation in the proceeding.— Only those persons who were both interested parties to the original investigation (i.e., persons listed on the Commission Secretary’s service list) and who participated in the NAFTA Chapter 19 panel proceeding may participate in the remand proceeding. Business proprietary information (‘‘BPI’’) referred to during the remand proceeding will be governed, as appropriate, by the administrative protective order issued in the original investigation. Written Submissions.—The Commission is not reopening the record in this proceeding for submission of new factual information. The Commission will, however, permit parties to file comments pertaining to the issues on which the Panel has remanded this matter. These comments must be limited to the precise issues in the Panel’s remand instructions quoted above, and must be based solely on the information already in the Commission’s record and may not include additional factual information. The deadline for filing comments is January 7, 2011. Comments shall be limited to no more than ten (10) doublespaced and single-sided pages of textual material. All written submissions must conform with the provisions of section 201.8 of the Commission’s rules; any submissions that contain BPI must also conform with the requirements of sections 201.6, 207.3, and 207.7 of the Commission’s rules. The Commission’s rules do not authorize filing of submissions with the Secretary by facsimile or electronic means, except to the extent permitted by section 201.8 of the Commission’s rules, as amended, 67 FR 68036 (November 8, 2002). In accordance with sections 201.16(c) and 207.3 of the Commission’s rules, each document filed by a party to the NAFTA Chapter 19 panel proceeding must be served on all other such parties, and a certificate of service must be timely filed. The Secretary will not accept a document for filing without a certificate of service. By order of the Commission. Issued: December 23, 2010. Marilyn R. Abbott, Secretary to the Commission.

SUMMARY: Section 423(c) of the Tax Reform Act of 1986, as amended (19 
U.S.C. 2703 note), requires the United States International Trade 
Commission to determine annually the amount (expressed in gallons) that 
is equal to 7 percent of the U.S. domestic market for fuel ethyl 
alcohol during the 12-month period ending on the preceding September 
30. This determination is to be used to establish the ``base quantity'' 
of imports of fuel ethyl alcohol with a zero percent local feedstock 
requirement that can be imported from U.S. insular possessions or 
CBERA-beneficiary countries. The base quantity to be used by U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection in the administration of the law is the 
greater of 60 million gallons or 7 percent of U.S. consumption, as 
determined by the Commission.
    For the 12-month period ending September 30, 2010, the Commission 
has determined the level of U.S. consumption of fuel ethyl alcohol to 
be 12.506 billion gallons; 7 percent of this amount is 875.4 million 
gallons (these figures have been rounded). Therefore, the base quantity 
for 2011 should be 875.4 million gallons. The Commission's 
determination is based on official data of the U.S. Department of 
Energy and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
