Within one year of the date on which its fresh garlic was first entered, Huameng made the request for a NSR that included all documents and information required by the statute and regulations. Its request was filed in May, which is the semiannual anniversary month of the order. Therefore, the POR is November 1, 2014, through April 30, 2015.10 Huameng, the sales of which are the basis for this NSR request.

The Department intends to issue the preliminary results within 180 days after the date on which this review is initiated and the final results within 90 days after the date on which we issue the preliminary results.11 It is the Department’s usual practice in cases involving non-market economies to require that a company seeking to establish eligibility for an antidumping duty rate separate from the country-wide rate (i.e., a separate rate) provide evidence of de jure and de facto absence of government control over the company’s export activities.12 Accordingly, the Department will issue questionnaires to Huameng that include a separate rate section. The review will proceed if the responses provide sufficient indication that Huameng is not subject to either de jure or de facto government control with respect to its exports of fresh garlic. The Department will instruct CBP to allow, at the option of the importer, the posting, until the completion of the review, of a bond or security in lieu of a cash deposit for certain entries of the subject merchandise from Huameng in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(B)(iii) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.214(e).

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the antidumping duty order is PC strand, 
produced from wire of non-stainless, non-galvanized steel, which is 
suitable for use in prestressed concrete (both pretensioned and post-
tensioned) applications. The product definition encompasses covered and 
uncovered strand and all types, grades, and diameters of PC strand. PC 
strand is normally sold in the United States in sizes ranging from 0.25 
inches to 0.70 inches in diameter. PC strand made from galvanized wire 
is only excluded from the scope if the zinc and/or zinc oxide coating 
meets or exceeds the 0.40 oz./ft\2\ standard set forth in ASTM-A-475.

Final Results of Review

margins up to 193.55 percent.
