Interested parties must submit applications for disclosure under administrative protective orders in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. On January 22, 2008, the Department published Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Documents Submission Procedures; APO Procedures, 73 FR 3634 (January 22, 2008). Those procedures apply to administrative reviews included in this notice of initiation. Parties wishing to participate in any of these administrative reviews should ensure that they meet the requirements of these procedures (e.g., the filing of separate letters of appearance as discussed at 19 CFR 351.103(d)). Any party submitting factual information in an antidumping duty or countervailing duty proceeding must certify to the accuracy and completeness of that information. See section 782(b) of the Act. Parties are hereby reminded that revised certification requirements are in effect for company/government officials as well as their representatives in all segments of any antidumping duty or countervailing duty proceedings initiated on or after March 14, 2011.

ACTION: Notice of Decision of Panel. AGENCY: On October 25, 2012, the NAFTA Chapter 19 binational panel issued its decision in the review of the final results of the 2005/2006 antidumping administrative review made by the U.S. Department of Commerce, respecting Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Canada, NAFTA Secretariat File Number USA–CDA–2008–1904–02. The panel affirmed the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Final Determination with regard to the issue of zeroing in this matter. Copies of the panel’s decision are available from the U.S. Section of the NAFTA Secretariat. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ellen M. Bohon, United States Secretary, NAFTA Secretariat, Suite 2061, 14th and Constitution Avenue, Washington, DC 20230, (202) 482–5438. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Chapter 19 of the North American Free-Trade Agreement (‘‘Agreement’’) establishes a mechanism to replace domestic judicial review of final determinations in antidumping and countervailing duty cases involving imports from a NAFTA country with review by independent binational panels. When a Request for Panel Review is filed, a panel is established to act in place of national courts to review expeditiously the final determination to determine whether it conforms with the antidumping or countervailing duty law of the country that made the determination. Under Article 1904 of the Agreement, which came into force on January 1, 1994, the Government of the United States, the Government of Canada and the Government of Mexico established Rules of Procedure for Article 1904 Binational Panel Reviews (‘‘Rules’’). These Rules were published in the Federal Register on February 23, 1994 (59 FR 8686). The panel review in this SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 matter has been conducted in accordance with these Rules. Panel Decision On May 11, 2012, the binational panel affirmed the U.S. Department of Commerce’s final results of the administrative review determining that the Complainant’s sales were made at the same level of trade. The panel remanded to the U.S. Department of Commerce with regard to its practice of ‘‘zeroing’’ in the administrative review before the panel, with instructions to provide an explanation consistent with the remand orders in two previous cases. (Dongbu Steel Co. Ltd. v. United States, 635 F3d 1363 (Fed Cir. 2011); and JTEKT Corp. v. United States, 642 F3d 1378 (Fed. Cir. 2011)) On October 25, 2012, in accordance with Article 1904.8 of NAFTA, and for reasons set out in the panel’s written decision and related order, the panel affirmed the Department of Commerce’s Final Determination with regard to the issue of ‘‘zeroing’’ in this matter.
