On June 23, 2009, the Department initiated the countervailing and antidumping duty investigations on PC Strand from the PRC. See Pre-stressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 74 FR 29670 (June 23, 2009), and accompanying Initiation Checklist,1 and Pre-stressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand From the People's Republic of China: Initiation of Antidumping Duty Investigation, 74 FR 29665, (June 23, 2009). The countervailing and antidumping duty investigations have the same scope with regard to the subject merchandise covered. On November 2, 2009, the Department published the preliminary affirmative countervailing duty determination pertaining to PC strand from the PRC. See Pre-stressed Concrete Steel Wire Strand from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 74 FR 56576 (November 2, 2009).
