Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK9F6TC42PROD with NOTICES2 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 29 / Friday, February 12, 2016 / Notices Please include in the submission a discussion of the appropriate duration of the remedy, if any, supported by the factual record. If a party seeks exclusion of an article from entry into the United States for purposes other than entry for consumption, the party should so indicate and provide information establishing that activities involving other types of entry either are adversely affecting it or likely to do so. For background, see Certain Devices for Connecting Computers via Telephone Lines, Inv. No. 337–TA–360, USITC Pub. No. 2843 (Dec. 1994) (Commission Opinion). If the Commission contemplates some form of remedy, it must consider the effects of that remedy upon the public interest. The factors the Commission will consider include the effect that an exclusion order and/or cease and desist orders would have on (1) the public health and welfare, (2) competitive conditions in the U.S. economy, (3) U.S. production of articles that are like or directly competitive with those that are subject to investigation, and (4) U.S. consumers. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving written submissions that address the aforementioned public interest factors in the context of this investigation. If the Commission orders some form of remedy, the U.S. Trade Representative, as delegated by the President, has 60 days to approve or disapprove the Commission’s action. See Presidential Memorandum of July 21, 2005, 70 FR 43251 (July 26, 2005). During this period, the subject articles would be entitled to enter the United States under bond, in an amount determined by the Commission and prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury. The Commission is therefore interested in receiving submissions concerning the amount of the bond that should be imposed if a remedy is ordered. Written Submissions: Parties to the investigation, interested government agencies, and any other interested parties are encouraged to file written submissions on the issues of remedy, the public interest, and bonding. Complainants are requested to submit proposed remedial orders for the Commission’s consideration. Complainants are also requested to state the HTSUS numbers under which the accused products are imported, and provide identification information for all known importers of the subject articles. Initial written submissions and proposed remedial orders must be filed no later than close of business on Thursday, February 18, 2016. Initial written submissions by the parties shall VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:38 Feb 11, 2016 Jkt 238001 be no more than 40 pages, excluding any attachments or exhibits. Reply submissions must be filed no later than the close of business on Thursday, February 25, 2016. Reply submissions by the parties shall be no more than 25 pages, excluding any attachments or exhibits. No further submissions on these issues will be permitted unless otherwise ordered by the Commission. Persons filing written submissions must file the original document electronically on or before the deadlines stated above and submit 8 true paper copies to the Office of the Secretary by noon the next day pursuant to section 210.4(f) of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR 210.4(f)). Submissions should refer to the investigation number (‘‘Inv. No. 337– TA–933’’) in a prominent place on the cover page and/or the first page. (See Handbook for Electronic Filing Procedures, http://www.usitc.gov/ secretary/fed_reg_notices/rules/ handbook_on_electronic_filing.pdf). Persons with questions regarding filing should contact the Secretary at (202) 205–2000. Any person desiring to submit a document to the Commission in confidence must request confidential treatment. All such requests should be directed to the Secretary to the Commission and must include a full statement of the reasons why the Commission should grant such treatment. See 19 CFR 201.6. Documents for which confidential treatment by the Commission is properly sought will be treated accordingly. A redacted nonconfidential version of the document must also be filed simultaneously with any confidential filing. All nonconfidential written submissions will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Secretary and on EDIS. The authority for the Commission’s determination is contained in section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1337), and in part 210 of the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure (19 CFR part 210).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Background. The final phase of these investigations is being 
scheduled pursuant to sections 705(b) and 731(b) of the Tariff Act of 
1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 1673d(b)), 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, India, Italy, and Korea of certain 
corrosion-resistant steel products, and that such products 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). The investigations were 
requested in petitions filed on June 3, 2015, by United States Steel

North Carolina), Steel Dynamics Inc. (Fort Wayne, Indiana), California 
Steel Industries (Fontana, California), ArcelorMittal USA LLC (Chicago, 
Illinois), and AK Steel Corporation (West Chester, Oregon).
    Although the Department of Commerce has preliminarily determined 
that imports of certain corrosion-resistant steel products from Taiwan 
are not being and are not likely to be subsidized and sold in the 
United States at less than fair value, for purposes of efficiency the 
Commission hereby waives rule 207.21(b) \3\ so that the final phase of 
the investigations may proceed concurrently in the event that Commerce 
makes final affirmative antidumping and countervailing duty 
determinations with respect to such imports.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ 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.
