AGENCY: Import Administration, International Trade Administration, Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On August 21, 2012, the U.S. Trade Representative (``USTR'') instructed the Department of Commerce (``Department'') to implement its determinations under section 129 of the Uruguay Round Agreements Act (``URAA'') regarding the antidumping and countervailing duty investigations on certain new pneumatic off-the-road tires (``OTR Tires'') from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''), circular welded carbon quality steel pipe (``CWP'') from the PRC, laminated woven sacks (``Sacks'') from the PRC, and light-walled rectangular pipe and tube (``LWRPT'') from the PRC, which renders them not inconsistent with the World Trade Organization (``WTO'') dispute settlement findings in United States--Definitive Anti-Dumping and Countervailing Duties on Certain Products from China, WT/DS379/AB/R (March 11, 2011) (``DS 379'').

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

On August 22, 2011, the Department informed interested parties that it was initiating proceedings under section 129 of the URAA to implement the findings of the WTO dispute settlement panel in DS 379 with regard to the countervailing duty (``CVD'') investigations on OTR Tires and Sacks from the PRC. On September 27, 2011, the Department informed interested parties that it was initiating proceedings under section 129 of the URAA to implement the findings of the WTO dispute settlement panel in DS 379 with regard to the CVD investigations on CWP and LWRPT from the PRC. On May 14, 2012, the Department informed interested parties that it was initiating proceedings under section 129 of the URAA to implement the findings of the WTO dispute settlement panel in DS 379 with regard to the antidumping duty (``AD'') investigations on CWP, LWRPT, OTR Tires, and Sacks from the PRC.

Given the number and complexity of the issues involved, the Department addressed the Dispute Settlement Body's findings through separate preliminary determination memoranda with respect to each of the issues addressed in WTO DS 379. Specifically, the Department issued the preliminary determinations regarding:

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

    The Department invited interested parties to comment on each of the section 129 preliminary determinations. After receiving comments and rebuttal comments from the interested parties, the Department issued its final results for the section 129 determinations on July 31, 2012.\8\

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

    \8\ See OTR Tires Section 129 Final Determinations; CWP Section 129 Final Determinations; Sacks Section 129 Final Determinations; and LWRPT Section 129 Final Determinations.

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

    In its August 21, 2012, letter, the USTR notified the Department that, consistent with section 129(b)(3) of the URAA, consultations with the Department and the appropriate congressional committees with respect to the July 31, 2012, determinations have been completed. Also on August 21, 2012, in accordance with section 129(b)(4) of the URAA, the USTR directed the Department to implement these determinations.

    Nature of the Proceedings

    Section 129 of the URAA governs the nature and effect of determinations issued by the Department to implement findings by WTO dispute settlement panels and the Appellate Body. Specifically, section 129(b)(2) of the URAA provides that ``notwithstanding any provision of the Tariff Act of 1930,'' upon a written request from the USTR, the Department shall issue a determination that would render its actions not inconsistent with an adverse finding of a WTO panel or the Appellate Body.\9\ The Statement of Administrative Action, U.R.A.A., H. Doc. 316, Vol. 1, 103d Cong. (1994) (``SAA''), variously refers to such a determination by the Department as a ``new,'' ``second,'' and ``different'' determination.\10\ After consulting with the Department and the appropriate congressional committees, the USTR may direct the Department to implement, in whole or in part, the new determination made under section 129 of the URAA.\11\ Pursuant to section 129(c) of the URAA, the new determination shall apply with respect to unliquidated entries of the subject merchandise that are entered or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption, on or after the date on which the USTR directs the Department to implement the new determination.\12\ The new determination is subject to judicial review, separate and apart from judicial review of the Department's original determination.\13\
