Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with a final determination, in accordance with

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

    \4\ See Preliminary Determination PDM at 4 (``Discussion of the

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

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, Commerce will 
instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all entries of PC strand from Spain, as 
described in the ``Scope of the Investigation'' in the appendix, which 
entered, or were withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after 
the date of publication in the of the Preliminary Determination.
    Pursuant to section 735(c)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(d), we will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for such 
entries of merchandise equal to the amount by which the normal value 
exceeds the U.S. price as follows: (1) For TYCSA, the cash deposit rate 
will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin determined in this 
final determination; (2) if the exporter is not the company identified 
above, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be equal to 
the weighted-average dumping margin determined in this final 
determination; and (3) the cash deposit rate for all other producers 
and exporters will be 14.75 percent. These suspension of liquidation 
instructions will remain in effect until further notice.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because Commerce's final determination 
is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the 
ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic 
industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with 
material injury, by reason of imports, or sales (or the likelihood of 
sales) for importation of PC strand from Spain no later than 45 days 
after this final determination. If the ITC determines that material 
injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will 
be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC 
determines such injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping 
duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by 
Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise, 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
effective date of the suspension of liquidation, as discussed above in 
the ''Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation'' section.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely notification of the 
return or 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 violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this determination and notice in 
accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(c).

    Dated: April 5, 2021.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Appendix--Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise covered by this investigation 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 this investigation 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 this investigation 
is dispositive.
