Background

    In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act) and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on November 19,

ITC notified the Department of its final determination that an industry 
in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of 
section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of less-than-fair-value 
imports of steel wire rod from the PRC.\2\ The ITC also determined that

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order covers certain hot-rolled products of 
carbon steel and alloy steel, in coils, of approximately circular cross 
section, less than 19.00 mm in actual solid cross-sectional diameter. 
Specifically excluded are steel products possessing the above-noted 
physical characteristics and meeting the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of 
the United States (HTSUS) definitions for (a) stainless steel; (b) tool 
steel; (c) high nickel steel; (d) ball bearing steel; or (e) concrete 
reinforcing bars and rods. Also excluded are free cutting steel (also 
known as free machining steel) products (i.e., products that contain by 
weight one or more of the following elements: 0.1 percent or more of 
lead, 0.05 percent or more of bismuth, 0.08 percent or more of sulfur, 
more than 0.04 percent of phosphorus, more than 0.05 percent of 
selenium, or more than 0.01 percent of tellurium). All products meeting 
the physical description of subject merchandise that are not 
specifically excluded are included in this scope.
    The products under order are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7213.91.3011, 7213.91.3015, 7213.91.3020, 7213.91.3093; 
7213.91.4500, 7213.91.6000, 7213.99.0030, 7227.20.0030, 7227.20.0080, 
7227.90.6010, 7227.90.6020, 7227.90.6030, and 7227.90.6035 of the 
HTSUS. Products entered under subheadings 7213.99.0090 and 7227.90.6090 
of the HTSUS also may be included in this scope if they meet the 
physical description of subject merchandise above. Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Antidumping Duty Order

    As stated above, on January 2, 2015, in accordance with section 
735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department of its final 
determination in this investigation, in which it found material injury 
with respect to imports of steel wire rod from the PRC.\4\ Because the 
Department determined that imports of steel wire rod from the PRC are 
being sold at less-than-fair value, and because the ITC determined that 
such imports are materially injuring a U.S. industry, all unliquidated 
entries of such merchandise from the PRC, entered or withdrawn from 
warehouse, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amounts listed below for all relevant entries of steel 
wire rod from the PRC. These antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of steel wire rod from the PRC entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after September 8, 
2014, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination.\5\

People's Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at 
Less Than Fair Value and Preliminary Determination of Critical 
Circumstances, in Part, 79 FR 53169 (September 8, 2014) (Preliminary 
Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all entries of steel 
wire rod from the PRC. We will also instruct CBP to require cash 
deposits equal to the amounts as indicated below. These instructions 
suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice.
    Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC's 
final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same 
time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this 
subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-
average antidumping duty margins listed below.\6\ For the purpose of 
determining cash deposit rates, the estimated weighted-average dumping 
margins for imports of subject merchandise from the PRC will be 
adjusted, as appropriate, for export subsidies found in the final 
determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation of 
this merchandise imported from the PRC.\7\

Critical Circumstances

    With  regard to the ITC's negative critical circumstances 
determination on imports of steel wire rod from the PRC, we will 
instruct CBP to lift suspension and refund any cash deposits made to 
secure the payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect to 
entries of subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after June 10, 2014 (i.e., 90 days prior to the date 
of publication of the Preliminary Determination), but before September 
8, 2014, (i.e., the date of the publication of the Preliminary 
Determination).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ As explained in the Final Determination, the estimated 
weighted average dumping margin for the separate companies and the 
PRC-wide Entity will be adjusted for export subsidies. See Final 
Determination, 79 FR at 68861. As a result of the adjustment for 
export subsidies, the cash deposit rate for the separate rate 
companies will be 93.18 percent and 97.24 percent for the PRC-wide 
entity. For information regarding these export subsidies, see CVD 
Final Determination and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum 
at 9-10 and Attachment entitled ``Description of Programs.''
    \9\ For the reasons explained in the Preliminary Determination, 
the Department finds it appropriate to consider Bei Tai Iron and

Determination, and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum at
