SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 December 11, 
2020, Commerce published its affirmative final determinations in the 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of PC strand from Argentina, 
Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the 
UAE.\1\ On January 25, 2021, the ITC notified Commerce of its final 
affirmative determinations 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 the LTFV imports of PC strand from Argentina, 
Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the 
UAE.\2\

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is PC strand. For a 
complete description of the scope of the orders, see the appendix to 
this notice.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    On January 25, 2021, in accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A)(i) 
and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final 
determinations that an industry in the United States is materially 
injured by reason of imports of PC strand from Argentina, Colombia, 
Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE.\3\ 
Therefore, Commerce is issuing these antidumping duty orders in 
accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736 of the Act. Because the ITC 
determined that imports of PC strand from Argentina, Colombia, Egypt, 
the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE are 
materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such 
merchandise from Argentina, Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi 
Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE, which are entered or withdrawn 
from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of 
antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See ITC Notification Letter.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, 
Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border

Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, 
antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the 
merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of 
the merchandise, for all relevant entries of PC strand from Argentina, 
Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the 
UAE. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of PC 
strand from Argentina, Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, 
Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after September 30, 2020, the date of publication of 
the Preliminary Determinations.\4\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 736 of the Act, Commerce will instruct 
CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries of PC 
strand from Argentina, Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, 
Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE which are entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication of the 
ITC's notice of final determination in the Federal Register. These 
instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further 
notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated 
antidumping duties equal to the amounts as indicated below. 
Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal 
Register of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations, CBP will 
require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated 
duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the cash 
deposit rates listed below.\5\ The relevant all-others rate applies to 
all producers or exporters not specifically listed, as appropriate.

Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins

    The dumping margins for each antidumping duty order are as follows:

    \6\ The cash deposit rates for Celik Halat ve Tel Sanayi A.S., 
G[uuml]ney [Ccedil]elik Hasir ve Demir (G[uuml]ney [Ccedil]elik), 
and the companies covered by the ``All Others'' rate are equal to 
the petition rate (53.65 percent) adjusted for the lowest rate of 
export subsidies found for any company in the most recently-
completed segment in the companion countervailing duty proceeding, 
i.e, G[uuml]ney [Ccedil]elik's total export subsidies rate of 9.05

Critical Circumstances

    With regard to the ITC's negative critical circumstances 
determination on imports of PC strand from Colombia, Egypt, the 
Netherlands, and Turkey, we will instruct CBP to lift suspension and to 
refund any cash deposits made to secure the payment of estimated 
antidumping duties with respect to entries of the subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 
2, 2020 (i.e., 90 days prior to the date of the publication of the 
Preliminary Determinations), but before September 30, 2020 (i.e., the 
date of publication of the Preliminary Determinations).

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that suspension of liquidation 
pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in 
effect for more than four months, except that Commerce may extend the 
four-month period to no more than six months at the request of 
exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the 
subject merchandise. Commerce's Preliminary Determinations were 
published on September 30, 2020.\7\ Commerce's Final Determinations 
were not extended and were published on December 11, 2020.\8\ As such, 
the four-month period beginning on the date of publication of the 
Preliminary Determinations ended on January 27, 2021.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Preliminary Determinations.
    \8\ See Final Determinations.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation, and to 
liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries 
of PC strand from Argentina, Colombia, Egypt, the Netherlands, Saudi 
Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE entered or withdrawn from warehouse 
for consumption after January 27, 2021, the date on which the 
provisional measures expired, through the day preceding the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations in the 
Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of 
publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determinations in the 
Federal Register.

Arabia, Taiwan, Turkey, and the UAE pursuant to section 736(a) of the 
Act. Interested parties can find a list of antidumping duty orders 
currently in effect at http://enforcement.trade.gov/stats/iastats1.html.

Appendix

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is prestressed concrete 
steel wire strand (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./ft2 standard set forth in ASTM-A-475.
    The PC strand subject to these orders is currently classifiable 
under subheadings 7312.10.3010 and 7312.10.3012 of the Harmonized 
Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS 
subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of these orders is dispositive.
