SUMMARY: On December 20, 2011, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published in the Federal Register its notice of affirmative preliminary determination of circumvention.1 We gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Determination, and received briefs and rebuttal briefs from interested parties. After evaluating the comments submitted by parties, we find no basis for altering the Department’s preliminary findings. Accordingly, pursuant to section 781(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.225(i), we continue to determine that shipments of wire rod with an actual diameter of 4.75 mm to 5.00 mm by Deacero S.A. de C.V (Deacero) constitutes merchandise altered in form or appearance in such minor respects that it should be included within the scope of the order on wire rod from Mexico. Further, we continue to determine that Ternium Mexico S.A. de C.V. (Ternium) is not covered by this affirmative anticircumvention inquiry because information on the record indicates that Ternium has not shipped wire rod with diameters of 4.75 mm to 5.0 mm. DATES: Effective Date: October 1, 2012. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eric B. Greynolds, Program Manager, or Jolanta Lawska, Trade Analyst, Office 3, Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6071 or (202) 482– 8362, respectively. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On June 8, 2011, the Department initiated a circumvention inquiry into whether Deacero and Ternium shipped wire rod with an actual diameter measuring 4.75 mm to 5.00 mm in a 1 See Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Circumvention of the Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 78882 (December 20, 2011) (Preliminary Determination). PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 manner that constitutes merchandise altered in form or appearance in such minor respects that it should be included within the scope.2 On December 20, 2011, the Department published its notice of affirmative preliminary determination of circumvention.3 The Department determined that wire rod with an actual diameter of 4.75 mm to 5.00 mm produced in Mexico and exported to the United States by Deacero is circumventing the antidumping duty order on wire rod from Mexico. The Department also directed U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to suspend liquidation of entries of such merchandise and require case deposits on said entries.4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.225(f)(3), interested parties were invited to submit comments on the Preliminary Determination. On January 12, 2012, Deacero submitted a case brief. On January 23, 2012, ArcelorMittal USA LLC, Gerdau Ameristeel U.S. Inc, Rocky Mountain Steel, and Members of the Wire Rod Producers Coalition (collectively, the Coalition) and Nucor Corporation (Nucor) submitted rebuttal briefs. The Department considered these submissions for the final determination of this circumvention inquiry. No party requested a hearing. Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to this order is carbon and certain alloy steel wire rod. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers 7213.91.3010, 7213.91.3090, 7213.91.4510, 7213.91.4590, 7213.91.6010, 7213.91.6090, 7213.99.0031, 7213.99.0038, 7213.99.0090, 7227.20.0010, 7227.20.0020, 7227.20.0090, 7227.20.0095, 7227.90.6051, 7227.90.6053, 7227.90.6058, and 7227.90.6059. Although the HTS numbers are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description, available in Notice of Antidumping Duty Orders: Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, and Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine, 67 FR 65945 (October 29, 2002), remains dispositive. 2 See Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico: Initiation of Anti-Circumvention Inquiry of Antidumping Duty Order, 76 FR 33218 (June 8, 2011) (Initiation). The Department is using slightly different wording in this Federal Register notice from the wording in the initiation notice and Preliminary Determination to clarify that Deacero’s shipments of 4.75 mm wire rod are covered by this circumvention inquiry. 3 See Preliminary Determination. 4 See Id., 76 FR at 78884.
