SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—In October 2007, the Commission determined that revocation of the antidumping duty order covering certain welded large diameter line pipe from Mexico would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. On April 21, 2008, six months after completion of the Commission’s review, the Mexican producer Tuberias Procarsa, S.A. de C.V. (‘‘Procarsa’’) attempted to file with the Commission a revised foreign producers’ questionnaire response which sought to revise certain aspects of its originally reported capacity, production, and shipment data. On April 24, 2008, the Commission rejected the submission on the grounds that it was untimely filed. On November 21, 2007, the domestic producer United States Steel Corporation (‘‘U.S. Steel’’) filed a request for review of the Commission’s determination by a binational panel under Article 1904 of the North American Free Trade Agreement. The parties completed briefing in the proceeding in 2008 and 2009. The Panel held a hearing in the proceeding on July 22, 2010. On January 18, 2011, the Panel issued an opinion in the matter. In its opinion, the Panel affirmed the Commission’s reliance on the existence of differing conditions of competition for Mexico and Japan when deciding not to exercise its discretion to cumulate the subject imports from those countries. The Panel also held that U.S. Steel was barred E:\FR\FM\18FEN1.SGM 18FEN1 WReier-Aviles on DSKGBLS3C1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 76, No. 34 / Friday, February 18, 2011 / Notices from raising in this proceeding ‘‘arguments regarding the asserted discrepancy between the questionnaire responses and the staff’s finding that the Mexican producers reported theoretical capacity,’’ finding that U.S. Steel failed to exhaust its administrative remedies before the Commission. Panel Opinion at 25. Nonetheless, the Panel remanded the Commission’s determination so that the Commission could take into account Procarsa’s revised foreign producers’ questionnaire response and re-consider its cumulation and likely injury analysis for Mexico in light of the revised response. Specifically, the Panel indicated that the Commission should consider the revised data in light of its potential impact on the Commission’s analysis of the Mexican industry’s home market orientation, its capacity trends, and the presence of Mexican imports in the U.S. market. The Panel noted that the revised data did not affect the Commission’s finding concerning Procarsa’s product range during the period. Participation in the proceeding.— Only those persons who were interested parties that participated in the review (i.e., persons listed on the Commission Secretary’s service list) and also parties to the NAFTA panel proceeding may participate in the remand proceeding. Such persons need not make any additional filings with the Commission to participate in the remand proceeding, unless they are adding new individuals to the list of persons entitled to receive business proprietary information under administrative protective order. Business proprietary information (‘‘BPI’’) referred to during the remand proceeding will be governed, as appropriate, by the administrative protective order issued in the review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background.--In October 2007, the Commission determined that 
revocation of the antidumping duty order covering certain welded large 
diameter line pipe from Mexico would not be likely to lead to 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States within a reasonably foreseeable time. On April 21, 2008, 
six months after completion of the Commission's review, the Mexican 
producer Tuberias Procarsa, S.A. de C.V. (``Procarsa'') attempted to 
file with the Commission a revised foreign producers' questionnaire 
response which sought to revise certain aspects of its originally 
reported capacity, production, and shipment data. On April 24, 2008, 
the Commission rejected the submission on the grounds that it was 
untimely filed.
    On November 21, 2007, the domestic producer United States Steel 
Corporation (``U.S. Steel'') filed a request for review of the 
Commission's determination by a binational panel under Article 1904 of 
the North American Free Trade Agreement. The parties completed briefing 
in the proceeding in 2008 and 2009. The Panel held a hearing in the 
proceeding on July 22, 2010.
    On January 18, 2011, the Panel issued an opinion in the matter. In 
its opinion, the Panel affirmed the Commission's reliance on the 
existence of differing conditions of competition for Mexico and Japan 
when deciding not to exercise its discretion to cumulate the subject 
imports from those countries. The Panel also held that U.S. Steel was 
barred

from raising in this proceeding ``arguments regarding the asserted 
discrepancy between the questionnaire responses and the staff's finding 
that the Mexican producers reported theoretical capacity,'' finding 
that U.S. Steel failed to exhaust its administrative remedies before 
the Commission. Panel Opinion at 25.
    Nonetheless, the Panel remanded the Commission's determination so 
that the Commission could take into account Procarsa's revised foreign 
producers' questionnaire response and re-consider its cumulation and 
likely injury analysis for Mexico in light of the revised response. 
Specifically, the Panel indicated that the Commission should consider 
the revised data in light of its potential impact on the Commission's 
analysis of the Mexican industry's home market orientation, its 
capacity trends, and the presence of Mexican imports in the U.S. 
market. The Panel noted that the revised data did not affect the 
Commission's finding concerning Procarsa's product range during the 
period.
    Participation in the proceeding.--Only those persons who were 
interested parties that participated in the review (i.e., persons 
listed on the Commission Secretary's service list) and also parties to 
the NAFTA panel proceeding may participate in the remand proceeding. 
Such persons need not make any additional filings with the Commission 
to participate in the remand proceeding, unless they are adding new 
individuals to the list of persons entitled to receive business 
proprietary information under administrative protective order. Business 
proprietary information (``BPI'') referred to during the remand 
proceeding will be governed, as appropriate, by the administrative 
protective order issued in the review.
    Written Submissions.--The Commission is reopening the record in 
this proceeding for the sole purpose of accepting Procarsa's revised 
foreign producers' questionnaire response into the record. It will not 
otherwise accept the submission of new factual information for the 
record. The Commission will permit the parties to file comments 
concerning the new factual information submitted on the record during 
the remand proceeding. Those comments should be limited solely to the 
issue of whether and how the data contained in Procarsa's revised 
foreign producer's questionnaire will affect the Commission's 
cumulation and likely injury findings for Mexico, including its 
findings relating to the Mexican industry's home market orientation, 
its capacity trends, and the presence of Mexican imports in the U.S. 
market. The parties may not use this opportunity to comment on any 
other issue, including any ``asserted discrepancy between the 
questionnaire responses and the staff's finding that the Mexican 
producers reported theoretical capacity.'' Panel Opinion at 25.
    The comments must be based solely on the information in the 
Commission's record. The Commission will reject submissions containing 
additional factual information or arguments pertaining to issues other 
than those on which the Panel has remanded this matter. The deadline 
for filing comments is March 8, 2011. Comments shall be limited to no 
more than twenty (20) double-spaced 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

rules, each document filed by a party to this 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.
