Persons with mobility impairments who will need special assistance in gaining access to the Commission should contact the Office 0.20 mm or more, in which the core loss is substantially equal in any direction of magnetization in the plane of the material. The term ‘‘substantially equal’’ means that the cross grain direction of core loss is no more than 1.5 times the straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling direction) of core loss. NOES has a magnetic permeability that does not exceed 1.65 Tesla when tested at a field of 800 A/m (equivalent to 10 Oersteds) along (i.e., parallel to) the rolling direction of the sheet (i.e., B800 value). NOES contains by weight more than 1.00 percent of silicon but less than 3.5 percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent of carbon, and not more than 1.5 percent of aluminum. NOES has a surface oxide coating, to which an insulation coating may be applied. NOES is subject to these investigations whether it is fully processed (i.e., fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties) or semi-processed (i.e., finished to final thickness and physical form but not fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties). Fully processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 677, Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) specification C 2552, and/or International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) specification 60404–8–4. Semi-processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 683. However, the scope of these investigations is not limited to merchandise meeting the ASTM, JIS, and IEC specifications noted immediately above. NOES is sometimes referred to as cold-rolled nonoriented (CRNO), non-grain oriented (NGO), nonoriented (NO), or cold-rolled non-grain oriented (CRNGO) electrical steel. These terms are interchangeable. Excluded from the scope of these investigations are flat-rolled products not in coils that, prior to importation into the United States, have been cut to a shape and undergone all punching, coating, or other operations necessary for classification in Chapter 85 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as a part (i.e., lamination) for use in a device such as a motor, generator, or transformer.’’ 2 The Department of Commerce has preliminarily determined that countervailing subsidies are not being provided to producers and exporters of nonoriented electrical steel from the Government of Korea.

Non-Oriented Electrical Steel from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, 
Sweden, and Taiwan; Scheduling of the final phase of countervailing 
duty and antidumping duty investigations

AGENCY: United States International Trade Commission.

ACTION: Notice.

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

SUMMARY: The Commission hereby gives notice of the scheduling of the 
final phase of antidumping and countervailing duty investigation Nos. 
701-TA-506-508 and 731-TA-1238-1243 (Final) under sections 705(b) and 
731(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 1673d(b)) (the 
Act) to determine whether an industry in the United States is 
materially injured or threatened with material injury, or the 
establishment of an industry in the United States is materially 
retarded, by reason of imports from China, Germany, Japan, Korea, 
Sweden, and Taiwan of non-oriented electrical steel, provided for in 
subheading 7225.19.00 and 7226.19.10, and 7226.19.90 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States,\1\ that are sold in the
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of these investigations, the Department of 
Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ``non-oriented 
electrical steel (NOES), which includes cold-rolled, flat-rolled, 
alloy steel products, whether or not in coils, regardless of width, 
having an actual thickness of 0.20 mm or more, in which the core 
loss is substantially equal in any direction of magnetization in the 
plane of the material. The term ``substantially equal'' means that 
the cross grain direction of core loss is no more than 1.5 times the 
straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling direction) of core loss. 
NOES has a magnetic permeability that does not exceed 1.65 Tesla 
when tested at a field of 800 A/m (equivalent to 10 Oersteds) along 
(i.e., parallel to) the rolling direction of the sheet (i.e., B800 
value). NOES contains by weight more than 1.00 percent of silicon 
but less than 3.5 percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent of 
carbon, and not more than 1.5 percent of aluminum. NOES has a 
surface oxide coating, to which an insulation coating may be 
applied.
    NOES is subject to these investigations whether it is fully 
processed (i.e., fully annealed to develop final magnetic 
properties) or semi-processed (i.e., finished to final thickness and 
physical form but not fully annealed to develop final magnetic 
properties). Fully processed NOES is typically made to the 
requirements of ASTM specification A 677, Japanese Industrial 
Standards (JIS) specification C 2552, and/or International 
Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) specification 60404-8-4. Semi-
processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM 
specification A 683. However, the scope of these investigations is 
not limited to merchandise meeting the ASTM, JIS, and IEC 
specifications noted immediately above.
    NOES is sometimes referred to as cold-rolled non-oriented 
(CRNO), non-grain oriented (NGO), non-oriented (NO), or cold-rolled 
non-grain oriented (CRNGO) electrical steel. These terms are 
interchangeable.
    Excluded from the scope of these investigations are flat-rolled 
products not in coils that, prior to importation into the United 
States, have been cut to a shape and undergone all punching, 
coating, or other operations necessary for classification in Chapter 
85 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as 
a part (i.e., lamination) for use in a device such as a motor, 
generator, or transformer.''

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    Background. The final phase of these investigations is being 
scheduled as a result of affirmative preliminary determinations by the 
Department of Commerce that certain benefits which constitute subsidies 
within the meaning of section 703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are 
being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China and 
Taiwan of non-oriented electrical steel, and that such products from 
China, Germany, Japan, Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan are being sold in the 
United States at less than fair value within the meaning of section 733 
of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b).\3\ The investigations were requested in a 
petition filed on September 30, 2013 by AK Steel Corp., West Chester, 
Ohio.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ In addition to making its preliminary countervailing duty 
determinations on non-oriented electrical steel from China, Korea, 
and Taiwan, the Department of Commerce simultaneously announced the 
alignment of the final countervailing duty determinations with its 
final determinations in the companion antidumping duty 
investigations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Although the Department of Commerce has preliminarily determined 
that imports of non-oriented electrical steel from Korea are not being 
and are not likely to be subsidized by the Government of Korea, for the 
purposes of efficiency the Commission hereby waives rule 207.21(b) \4\ 
so that the final phase of the investigation may proceed concurrently 
in the event that Commerce makes a final affirmative determination with 
respect to such imports.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Section 207.21(b) of the Commission's rules provides that, 
where the Department of Commerce has issued a negative preliminary 
determination, the Commission will publish a Final Phase Notice of 
Scheduling upon receipt of an affirmative final determination from 
Commerce.
