As a result of its reviews, Commerce determined that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and of net countervailable subsidies and, therefore, Commerce notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margin of dumping and subsidy rates likely to prevail should the Orders be revoked, pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(b) and (c) of the Act.4 On May 4, 2021, the ITC published its determination, pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of the Orders would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.5 Scope of the Orders The product covered by the Orders is PC strand, produced from wire of nonstainless, 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.
