ArcelorMittal Las Truchas, S.A. de C.V ..................................... Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 1.54 2.59 Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review.9 For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), the Department will issue instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. 8 See ‘‘Final Results in the 9th Administrative Review on Carbon and Certain Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Mexico: Calculation Memorandum for Deacero S.A. de C.V. and Deacero USA, Inc.

SUMMARY: On November 10, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the 
Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty order on carbon and certain alloy steel 
wire rod (wire rod) from Mexico. The period of review (POR) is October 
1, 2013, through September 30, 2014, and the review covers two 
producers/exporters of subject merchandise: ArcelorMittal Las Truchas, 
S.A. de C.V. (AMLT) and Deacero S.A.de C.V.\1\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ During this administrative review, we also examined Deacero 
USA, Inc., the U.S.-based affiliate of Deacero S.A. de C.V. We refer 
to these two companies collectively as Deacero.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain 
changes in the margin calculations. The final results, consequently, 
differ from the preliminary results. The final weighted-average dumping 
margins for the reviewed producers/exporters are listed below in the 
section entitled ``Final Results of Review.''

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this 
review.\9\ For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem assessment rates based on the ratio of the total 
amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to the 
total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this 
administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates 
calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 
0.5 percent), the Department will issue instructions directly to CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ For assessment purposes, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after the date of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of the final 
results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2) 
of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rates for Deacero and AMLT will be the 
rates established in the final results of this administrative review; 
(2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered 
in this administrative review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original 
investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be 
the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of 
the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 20.11 percent, the all-
others rate established in the investigation.\10\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Alloy Steel Wire Rod from Brazil, Indonesia, Mexico, Moldova, 
Trinidad and Tobago, and Ukraine, 67 FR 65945 (October 29, 2002).

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of

APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

    Dated: May 13, 2016.
