Results will be available for use for a variety of public and business needs such as economic and market analysis, company performance, and forecasting future demand. The Census Bureau conducts the AWTS to provide continuing and timely national statistical data on wholesale trade. The 2012 AWTS is a separate collection from and is not part of the 2012 Economic Census. The Census Bureau will provide report forms to businesses included in the survey. Additional copies are available upon written request to the Director, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC 20233–0101. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Randy Moore, Service Sector Statistics Division, at (301) 763–7231 or by email at randy.a.moore@census.gov. Sections 182, 224, and 225 of Title 13 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) authorize the Census Bureau to take surveys that are necessary to produce current data on the subjects covered by the major censuses. As part of this authorization, the Census Bureau conducts the AWTS to provide continuing and timely national statistical data on wholesale trade activity for the period between economic censuses and, for this year, during the economic census. The AWTS covers employer firms with establishments located in the United States and classified in the Wholesale Trade sector as defined by the 2007 NAICS. The 2012 AWTS will collect data for three components of wholesale activity: Wholesale distributors; manufacturers’ sales branches and offices; and agents, brokers, and electronic markets. For wholesale distributors, the Census Bureau will collect data covering sales, sales taxes, e-commerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside theUnited States, purchases, total and detailed operating expenses. For manufacturers’ sales branches and offices, the Census Bureau will collect data covering annual sales, sales taxes, e-commerce sales, year-end inventories held inside and outside the United States and total operating expenses. For agents, brokers, and electronic markets, the Census Bureau will collect data covering commissions, total operating revenue, gross selling value, and total operating expenses. The Census Bureau has determined that the conduct of this survey is necessary as these data are not available publicly on a timely basis from non-governmental or other government sources. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:34 Nov 08, 2012 Jkt 229001 For the 2012 AWTS, we will request data for wholesale distributors on detailed operating expenses that were previously requested under a separate supplemental mailing (conducted every 5 years). The last supplemental mailing was conducted for the 2007 AWTS under OMB No. 0607–0942. While the wholesale portion of that program will be collapsed into the AWTS, we will continue to only ask the detailed expense questions to wholesale distributors every 5 years. Also for the 2012 AWTS, we will request data on sales taxes, which is asked as a part of the AWTS every 5 to 6 years. The last time we requested sales tax data was for the 2006 AWTS. Firms were selected for the AWTS using a stratified random sample based on industry groupings and annual sales size. We will provide report forms to the firms covered by this survey in February 2013, and will require their responses within 50 days after receipt. Firms’ responses to the AWTS are required by law (Title 13, U.S.C., Sections 182, 224, and 225). The sample of firms selected will provide, with measurable reliability, statistics on annual sales, e-commerce sales, sales taxes, purchases, total and detailed operating expenses, year-end inventories held both inside and outside the Unites States, commissions, total operating revenue, and gross selling value, for 2012. The data collected in this survey will be similar to that collected in the past and within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the economic census. These data are collected to provide a sound statistical basis for the formation of policy by various government agencies. Results will be available for use for a variety of public and business needs such as economic and market analysis, company performance, and forecasting future demand. Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) unless that collection of information displays a current valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. In accordance with the PRA, 44 U.S.C. 3501–3521, OMB approved the AWTS under OMB control number 0607–0195. Based upon the foregoing, I have directed that the annual survey be conducted for the purpose of collecting these data. PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Dated: November 2, 2012. Thomas L.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On May 8, 2012, the Department published the Preliminary Results. In the Preliminary Results, the Department indicated its intent to rescind the review with respect to Gem-Year Industrial Co., Ltd. (‘‘Gem-Year’’) and Haiyan Julong Standard Part Co., Ltd. (‘‘Haiyan Julong’’) for lack of shipments.2 On June 8, 2012, the RMB/IFI Group submitted factor usage information that the Department requested for two control numbers that were not produced during the POR.

Interested parties were further provided an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. Between July 17 and July 24, 2012, we received case and rebuttal briefs from interested parties. On August 24, 2012, the Department extended the time limit for these final results by 60 days.3 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to this review are addressed in the memorandum entitled, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Second Administrative Review of Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China’’ (‘‘I&D Memo’’), which is dated November 5, 2012, and hereby adopted by this notice. A list of the issues that parties raised, and to which we respond in the I&D Memo is attached to this notice as Appendix I. The I&D Memo is a public document and is on file electronically via Import Administration’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (‘‘IA ACCESS’’). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http:// iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit (‘‘CRU’’), room 7046 of the main Department of Commerce building.

The signed I&D Memo and the electronic versions of the I&D Memo are identical in content. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Changes Since the Preliminary Results The Department has made changes to the preliminary margin calculation for the RMB/IFI Group. Specifically, we relied on factor usage information submitted after the Preliminary Results for the two control numbers that were not produced during the POR and updated the Thai import statistics used to value steel wire rod based on the specific carbon content reported by the RMB/IFI Group for its steel wire rod consumption.4 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order is steel threaded rod. Steel threaded rod is certain threaded rod, bar, or studs, of carbon quality steel, having a solid, circular cross section, of any diameter, 3 See Department’s Memorandum, re: ‘‘Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Extension of Deadline for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review,’’ dated August 24, 2012. 4 See I&D Memo at Comments 1 and 3.

Certain steel threaded rod subject to the order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) at subheadings 7318.15.5051, 7318.15.5056, 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095.5 Although the subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description, available in Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 74 FR 17154 (April 14, 2009), remains dispositive. PRC-Wide Entity As noted in the Preliminary Results, upon initiation of the administrative review, we provided an opportunity for all companies for which the review was initiated to complete either the separate rate application or certification.6 The Department preliminarily determined that New Pole Power Systems Co., Ltd. (‘‘New Pole’’) failed to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate and is thus properly considered not to be separate from the PRC-wide entity.7 Further, in the Preliminary Results we assigned the PRC-wide entity a rate of 206.00 percent, the only rate ever determined for the PRC-wide entity in this proceeding.8 No party submitted comments regarding this finding. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to assign the PRC-wide entity a rate of 206.00 percent.9 67333 the United States of subject merchandise during the POR and no party provided written arguments regarding this issue. Thus, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), and consistent with our practice,11 we are rescinding this review with respect to Gem-Year and Haiyan Julong. Final Results of Review The dumping margins for the POR are as follows: Exporter RMB Fasteners Ltd., and IFI & Morgan Ltd. (‘‘RMB/IFI Group’’) ............................. PRC-wide Entity ................... Weightedaverage margin (percent) 19.68 206.00 The Department will disclose calculations performed for these final results to the parties within five days of the date of publication of this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Final Partial Rescission In the Preliminary Results, the Department indicated its intent to rescind this review with respect to GemYear and Haiyan Julong upon preliminarily determining that they had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.10 Subsequent to the Preliminary Results, no information was submitted on the record indicating that they made sales to Assessment Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of review. For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duty calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).12 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On May 8, 2012, the Department published the Preliminary Results. 
In the Preliminary Results, the Department indicated its intent to 
rescind the review with respect to Gem-Year Industrial Co., Ltd. 
(``Gem-Year'') and Haiyan Julong Standard Part Co., Ltd. (``Haiyan 
Julong'') for lack of shipments.\2\

were not produced during the POR. On June 19, 2012, the

[[Page 67333]]

RMB/IFI Group submitted additional surrogate value information for the 
final results. Interested parties were further provided an opportunity 
to comment on the Preliminary Results. Between July 17 and July 24, 
2012, we received case and rebuttal briefs from interested parties. On 
August 24, 2012, the Department extended the time limit for these final 
results by 60 days.\3\

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this review are addressed in the memorandum entitled, ``Issues and 
Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the Second Administrative 
Review of Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People's Republic of 
China'' (``I&D Memo''), which is dated November 5, 2012, and hereby 
adopted by this notice. A list of the issues that parties raised, and 
to which we respond in the I&D Memo is attached to this notice as 
Appendix I. The I&D Memo is a public document and is on file 
electronically via Import Administration's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (``IA 
ACCESS''). IA ACCESS is available to registered users at http://iaaccess.trade.gov and in the Central Records Unit (``CRU''), room 7046 
of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete 
version of the I&D Memo can be accessed directly on the internet at 
http://www.trade.gov/ia/. The signed I&D Memo and the electronic 
versions of the I&D Memo are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    The Department has made changes to the preliminary margin 
calculation for the RMB/IFI Group. Specifically, we relied on factor 
usage information submitted after the Preliminary Results for the two 
control numbers that were not produced during the POR and updated the 
Thai import statistics used to value steel wire rod based on the 
specific carbon content reported by the RMB/IFI Group for its steel 
wire rod consumption.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See I&D Memo at Comments 1 and 3.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is steel threaded rod. Steel 
threaded rod is certain threaded rod, bar, or studs, of carbon quality 
steel, having a solid, circular cross section, of any diameter, in any 
straight length, that have been forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-
rolled, machine straightened, or otherwise cold-finished, and into 
which threaded grooves have been applied. Certain steel threaded rod 
subject to the order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') at subheadings 7318.15.5051, 
7318.15.5056, 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095.\5\ Although the 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written product description, available in Certain Steel Threaded Rod 
from the People's Republic of China: Notice of Antidumping Duty Order, 
74 FR 17154 (April 14, 2009), remains dispositive.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ As part of these final results, the Department has modified 
the language of the scope to reflect the fact that HTSUS subheading 
7318.15.5050 has been deleted and replaced with subheadings 
7318.15.5051 and 7318.15.5056. See I&D Memo at Comment 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

PRC-Wide Entity

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, upon initiation of the 
administrative review, we provided an opportunity for all companies for 
which the review was initiated to complete either the separate rate 
application or certification.\6\ The Department preliminarily 
determined that New Pole Power Systems Co., Ltd. (``New Pole'') failed 
to demonstrate eligibility for a separate rate and is thus properly 
considered not to be separate from the PRC-wide entity.\7\ Further, in 
the Preliminary Results we assigned the PRC-wide entity a rate of 
206.00 percent, the only rate ever determined for the PRC-wide entity 
in this proceeding.\8\ No party submitted comments regarding this 
finding. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to assign the 
PRC-wide entity a rate of 206.00 percent.\9\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Partial Rescission

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department indicated its intent to 
rescind this review with respect to Gem-Year and Haiyan Julong upon 
preliminarily determining that they had no shipments of subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR.\10\ Subsequent to the 
Preliminary Results, no information was submitted on the record 
indicating that they made sales to the United States of subject 
merchandise during the POR and no party provided written arguments 
regarding this issue. Thus, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3), 
and consistent with our practice,\11\ we are rescinding this review 
with respect to Gem-Year and Haiyan Julong.

                                                             Weighted-
                        Exporter                          average margin
                                                             (percent)

 Group'')...............................................
PRC-wide Entity.........................................          206.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department will disclose calculations performed for these final 
results to the parties within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends 
to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of review. For any individually 
examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de 
minimis, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment 
rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duty 
calculated for the importer's examined sales to the total entered value 
of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\12\ We 
will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment 
rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de minimis 
(i.e., 0.50 percent). Where either the respondent's

[[Page 67334]]

weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ In these final results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended, (``the Act''): (1) For the RMB/IFI Group, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established in the final results of review 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 
percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be required for that company); 
(2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters 
not listed above that have a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the PRC-wide rate of 206.00 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. The deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, which continues 
to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the 
proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of 
APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing this administrative review and notice 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 5, 2012
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
