On October 1, 2012, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wire rod from Mexico for the period of review, October 1, 2011, through September 30, 2012.
On October 31, 2012, Nucor Corporation (“Nucor”) requested that the Department conduct a review of Deacero S.A. de C.V. (“Deacero”), Ternium S.A, (including Ternium Mexico S.A. de C.V. and Hylsa S.A. de C.C.) (collectively “Ternium”), and ArcelorMittal Las Truchas, S.A. de C.V. and its affiliate, ArcelorMittal International America LLC (collectively “AMLT”), or any of their affiliates.
On December 3, 2012, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), the Department initiated an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on wire rod from Mexico covering Deacero, Ternium, and AMLT.
On December 18, 2012, Nucor withdrew its request for an administrative review.
Rescission of Review
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice initiating the review. Nucor withdrew its request for review within the 90-day deadline. No other interested party requested an administrative review of Deacero, Ternium, and AMLT, or any other entity. Therefore, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), we are rescinding this review in its entirety.
The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess antidumping duties on all entries of wire rod from Mexico at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry or withdrawal from warehouse for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(1)(i). The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review.Start Printed Page 2659
