The ITC also determined that critical circumstances do not exist. See Drill Pipe and Drill Collars from China, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–474 and 731–TA–1176 (Final), USITC Publication 4213 (February 2011). 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 steel drill pipe and steel drill collars, whether or not conforming to American Petroleum Institute (API) or non-API specifications. Included are finished drill pipe and drill collars without regard to the specific chemistry of the steel (i.e., carbon, stainless steel, or other alloy steel), and without regard to length or outer diameter. Also included are unfinished drill collars (including all drill collar green tubes) and unfinished drill pipe (including drill pipe green tubes, which are tubes meeting the following description: seamless tubes with an outer diameter of less than or equal to 6 5/8 inches (168.28 millimeters), containing between 0.16 and 0.75 percent molybdenum, and containing between 0.75 and 1.45 percent chromium).

Countervailing Duty Order According to section 706(b)(2) of the Act, duties shall be assessed on subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC’s notice of final determination if that determination is based upon the threat of material injury. Section 706(b)(1) of the Act states, ‘‘{i}f the Commission, in its final determination under section 705(b), finds material injury or threat of material injury which, but for the suspension of liquidation under section 703(d)(2), would have led to a finding of material injury, then entries of the merchandise subject to the countervailing duty order, the liquidation of which has been suspended under section 703(d)(2), shall be subject to the imposition of countervailing duties under section 701(a).’’ In addition, section 706(b)(2) of the Act requires U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to refund any cash deposits or bonds of estimated countervailing duties posted before the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative determination, if the ITC’s final determination is based on threat other than the threat described in section 706(b)(1) of the Act. Because the ITC’s final determination in this case is based on the threat of material injury and is not accompanied by a finding that injury would have resulted but for the imposition of suspension of liquidation of entries since the Department’s Preliminary Determination 1 was published in the Federal Register, section 706(b)(2) of the Act is applicable.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The U.S. Government recognizes that economic recovery and job creation will depend significantly on its ability to work collaboratively with key trading partners to promote free and open trade and investment. In our trade and investment relationships with Mexico and Canada, and within North America as a whole, the main impediments to greater trade and investment—and more open foreign markets for U.S. exporters and investors—are not tariffs or quotas, but rather unnecessary differences in product regulations that increase costs for producers and consumers in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. With this Notice, the Commerce Department, on behalf of the Administration, is seeking public input to help identify such divergences in North America, so that the U.S. Government can work cooperatively with Mexico and Canada to address them. President Obama explicitly linked trade to job creation when he announced the National Export srobinson on DSKHWCL6B1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:26 Mar 02, 2011 Jkt 223001 Initiative in his 2010 State of the Union address, and set the ambitious goal of doubling U.S. exports in the next five years to support millions of jobs here at home. The President has focused particularly on efforts to remove unnecessary divergences in regulations with Canada and Mexico, our first and second largest export markets, respectively, and officials from the three countries have discussed strengthening regulatory cooperation to promote better regulation and facilitate trade, both bilaterally and trilaterally. President Obama met with President Felipe ´ Calderon of Mexico and Prime Minister Stephen Harper of Canada at the the North American Leaders’ Summit on August 10, 2009, in Guadalajara, Mexico. In the joint statement they issued at the end of that meeting they noted the progress that each of their governments had made in reducing unnecessary regulatory differences and they instructed their respective governments, ‘‘* * * to continue this work by building on the previous efforts, developing focused priorities and a specific timeline.’’ The United States Government is working with both Mexico and Canada to reduce unnecessary regulatory differences and to explore further regulatory cooperation activities aimed at reducing or eliminating such differences where they hinder trade and reduce competitiveness. In order to do so, the United States has established a HighLevel Regulatory Cooperation Council with Mexico and a Regulatory Cooperation Council with Canada. While these councils are bilateral, regulatory divergences exist that have consequences for firms in all three countries. Therefore, with this Notice, the Department of Commerce’s International Trade Administration (ITA), in support of the National Export Initiative (NEI) and pursuant to the Secretary of Commerce’s role as the chair of Trade Promotion Coordinating Committee, is requesting stakeholders to assist the Administration to identify opportunities for cooperation between or among the United States, Canada, and Mexico to reduce or eliminate regulatory divergences that disrupt trade in goods in the region, as well as any existing or emerging sectors that may benefit from regulatory coordination between these countries. Canada has already solicited similar input from its stakeholders, and Mexico has committed to do the same. DATES: The agency must receive comments on or before April 4, 2011. ADDRESSES: Submissions should be made via the Internet at http:// PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 www.regulations.gov under docket ITA– 2011–0003–0001. Please direct written submissions to Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 6616, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The public is strongly encouraged to file submissions electronically rather than by mail. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions regarding this notice should be directed to regcoop@trade.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In his January 2010 State of the Union address, President Obama announced the NEI to double U.S. exports over five years and support the creation of new jobs. As the President’s Export Promotion Cabinet has undertaken to implement the NEI, regional and sectoral plans are being developed to tailor the U.S. Government’s NEI efforts based on the realities of trade in certain regions. For example, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) created the world’s largest free trade area, linking 444 million people and producing $17 trillion in goods and services. Trilateral trade among Canada, Mexico, and the United States was $944.6 billion in 2010. Despite this extensive trade among NAFTA partners, U.S. exporters indicate that they continue to encounter unnecessary divergences in regulatory measures in North America that disrupt trade. ITA has developed a Mature Markets Initiative (MMI) to evaluate how best to grow exports, create jobs, and support U.S. business growth in areas where trade is robust. Regulatory cooperation is a key component of the MMI. Accordingly, ITA has identified Canada and Mexico as mature markets and will seek ways to ease or eliminate regulatory differences that hinder competitiveness and negatively impact trade for U.S. firms, including new-tomarket and new-to-export businesses, particularly small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs). Trade may be impeded, for example, because countries apply different standards or technical requirements to address common environmental, health, safety, or other concerns with respect to certain products or product categories. In some instances, such divergences may be arbitrary and can lead to delays, additional costs, and burdens on U.S. suppliers, particularly SMEs, and, in some cases, can make it difficult or impossible for U.S. suppliers to penetrate foreign markets. These divergences can also increase regulatory burdens for governments and costs for consumers. In other cases, regulatory E:\FR\FM\03MRN1.SGM 03MRN1

Drill Collars from China, Investigation Nos. 701-TA-474 and 731-TA-1176 
(Final), USITC Publication 4213 (February 2011). 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 steel drill pipe and steel 
drill collars, whether or not conforming to American Petroleum 
Institute (API) or non-API specifications. Included are finished drill 
pipe and drill collars without regard to the specific chemistry of the 
steel (i.e., carbon, stainless steel, or other alloy steel), and 
without regard to length or outer diameter. Also included are 
unfinished drill collars (including all drill collar green tubes) and

Countervailing Duty Order

    According to section 706(b)(2) of the Act, duties shall be assessed 
on subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication of the ITC's notice of 
final determination if that determination is based upon the threat of 
material injury. Section 706(b)(1) of the Act states, ``{i{time} f the 
Commission, in its final determination under section 705(b), finds 
material injury or threat of material injury which, but for the 
suspension of liquidation under section 703(d)(2), would have led to a 
finding of material injury, then entries of the merchandise subject to 
the countervailing duty order, the liquidation of which has been 
suspended under section 703(d)(2), shall be subject to the imposition 
of countervailing duties under section 701(a).'' In addition, section 
706(b)(2) of the Act requires U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
to refund any cash deposits or bonds of estimated countervailing duties 
posted before the date of publication of the ITC's final affirmative 
determination, if the ITC's final determination is based on threat 
other than the threat described in section 706(b)(1) of the Act. 
Because the ITC's final determination in this case is based on the 
threat of material injury and is not accompanied by a finding that 
injury would have resulted but for the imposition of suspension of 
liquidation of entries since the Department's Preliminary Determination 
\1\ was published in the Federal Register, section 706(b)(2) of the Act 
is applicable.

Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 75 FR 
33245 (June 11, 2010) (Preliminary Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As a result of the ITC's determination and in accordance with 
section 706(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to assess, 
upon further instruction by the Department, countervailing duties equal 
to the amount of the net countervailable subsidy for all relevant 
entries of drill pipe from the PRC. In accordance with section 706 of 
the Act, the Department will direct CBP to reinstitute suspension of 
liquidation,\2\ effective on the date of publication of the ITC's 
notice of final determination in the Federal Register, and to require a 
cash deposit for each entry of subject merchandise in an amount equal 
to the net countervailable subsidy rates listed below. See section 
706(a)(3) of the Act. The all others rate applies to all producers and 
exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ The Department instructed CBP to discontinue the suspension 
of liquidation on October 9, 2010, in accordance with section 703(d) 
of the Act. Section 703(d) states that the suspension of liquidation 
pursuant to a preliminary determination may not remain in effect for 
more than four months. Entries of drill pipe from the PRC made on or 
after October 9, 2010, and prior to the date of publication of the 
ITC's final determination in the Federal Register are not liable for 
the assessment of countervailing duties because of the Department's 
discontinuation, effective October 9, 2010, of the suspension of 
liquidation.

Termination of the Suspension of Liquidation

    As a result of our affirmative critical circumstances finding on 
the DP Master Group and all other companies, CBP suspended liquidation 
and collected cash deposits or bonds on all entries by these companies 
made 90 days prior to our affirmative Preliminary Determination.
    The Department will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of 
liquidation for entries of drill pipe from the PRC, entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption prior to the publication of 
the ITC's notice of final determination. The Department will also 
instruct CBP to refund any cash deposits made and release any bonds 
with respect to entries of drill pipe entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse,

date of publication of the ITC's final determination in the Federal 
Register.
    This notice constitutes the countervailing duty order with respect 
to drill pipe from the PRC, pursuant to section 706(a) of the Act.
