Steel Concrete Reinforcing Bar From Mexico and Turkey; 
Determinations

    On the basis of the record \1\ developed in the subject 
investigations, the United States International Trade Commission 
(``Commission'') determines, pursuant to sections 705(b) and 735(b) of 
the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b)) and (19 U.S.C. 1673d(b)) 
(``the Act''), that an industry in the United States is materially 
injured by reason of imports from Mexico of steel concrete reinforcing 
bar (``rebar'') that have been found by the Department of Commerce 
(``Commerce'') to be sold in the United States at less than fair value, 
and by reason of imports from Turkey of rebar that have been found by 
Commerce to be subsidized by the government of Turkey. The subject 
merchandise is provided for primarily in subheadings 7213.10.00 and 
7214.20.00 and statistical reporting number 7228.30.8010 of the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States.\2\

Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 207.2(f)).

critical circumstances determinations are not likely to undermine 
seriously the remedial effect of the antidumping duty order on rebar 
from Mexico and the countervailing duty order on rebar from Turkey.

members: Nucor Corporation, Charlotte, NC; Gerdau Ameristeel U.S. Inc., 
Tampa, FL; Commercial Metals Company, Irving, TX; Cascade Steel Rolling 
Mills, Inc., McMinnville, OR; and Byer Steel Corporation, Cincinnati, 
OH. The final phase of the investigations was scheduled by the 
Commission following notification of preliminary determinations by 
Commerce regarding imports of rebar from Mexico and Turkey.\3\ Notice 
of the scheduling of the final phase of the Commission's investigations 
and of a public hearing to be held in connection therewith was given by 
posting copies of the notice in the Office of the Secretary, U.S. 
International Trade Commission, Washington, DC, and by publishing the 
notice in the Federal Register on May 30, 2014 (79 FR 31136). The 
hearing was held in Washington, DC, on September 15, 2014, and all 
persons who requested the opportunity were permitted to appear in 
person or by counsel.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ On February 26, 2014, Commerce preliminarily determined that 
imports of rebar from Turkey were not subsidized within the meaning 
of section 703(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b(b)) (79 FR 10771). On 
April 24, 2014, Commerce preliminarily determined that imports of 
rebar from Mexico and Turkey were dumped within the meaning of 
733(b) of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1673b(b)) (79 FR 22802-22804). On 
September 15, 2014, Commerce published notice of its final 
affirmative determination of countervailable subsidies for producers 
and exporters of rebar from Turkey (79 FR 54963), its final 
affirmative determination of sales at less than fair value with 
respect to imports from Mexico (79 FR 54967), and its final negative 
determination of sales at less than fair value with respect to 
imports from Turkey (79 FR 54965).
