Countervailing Duty Order

    On January 28, 2013, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determination, pursuant to section 705(b)(1)(A) of the Act, that an 
industry in the United States is materially injured as a result of 
subsidized imports from Vietnam. Pursuant to section 706(a) of the Act, 
the Department is publishing a countervailing duty order on the subject 
merchandise.
    As a result of the ITC's final determination, in accordance with 
section 706(a) of the Act, the Department will direct CBP to assess, 
upon further instruction by the Department, countervailing duties on 
unliquidated entries of certain steel wire garment hangers from Vietnam

of liquidation pursuant to a preliminary determination may not remain 
in effect for more than four months. Entries of certain steel wire 
garment hangers from Vietnam made on or after October 2, 2012, 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, due to the Department's discontinuation, 
effective October 2, 2012, of the suspension of liquidation.
    In accordance with section 706 of the Act, the Department will 
direct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of certain steel wire garment 
hangers from Vietnam, effective the date of publication of the ITC's
