Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the reasons explained in the I&D Memo, we revised the margin calculation for Stanley. Accordingly, for the final results, the Department has updated the margin to be assigned to companies eligible for a separate rate as the revised calculated margin of the sole mandatory respondent, Stanley, whose margin is not zero, de minimis, or based on facts available, unlike the other mandatory respondent, Tianjin Lianda, whose margin is the PRC-wide entity rate of 118.04 percent. The Surrogate Values Memo contains further explanation of our changes to the surrogate values selected for Stanley’s factors of production.16 For a list of all issues addressed in these final results, please refer to Appendix I accompanying this notice. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined that Besco Machinery Industry (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd. (‘‘Besco’’), Jining Huarong Hardware Products Co., Ltd., Nanjing Yuechang Hardware Co., Ltd., PT Enterprise Inc., Shanxi Tuci Broad Wire Products Co., Ltd., and Zhejian Gem-Chun Hardware Accessory Co., Ltd. did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR.17 Consistent with the Department’s assessment practice in non-market economy (‘‘NME’’) cases, we completed the review with respect to the abovenamed companies. Based on the certifications submitted by the aforementioned companies, and our analysis of CBP information, we continue to determine that these companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As noted in the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section below, the Department intends to issue appropriate instructions to CBP for the above-named companies based on the final results of this review. Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested the review withdraws the request within 90-days of the date of publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioner withdrew its request for an administrative review on CPI, Chiieh Yung Metal Industrial Corporation, Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., Ltd., and Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group; no other party requested a review of these companies.18 Accordingly, we are rescinding this review, in part, with respect to these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).19 Final Results of Administrative Review The weighted-average dumping margins for the administrative review are as follows: Weightedaverage margin (percent) Exporter sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. and Stanley Black & Decker, Inc .......................................................

VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:36 Mar 17, 2017 Jkt 241001 in the no shipments category in the Preliminary Results. Therefore, the Department removed these companies from the no shipments category, as discussed in Comment 4 in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. 18 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4. 19 The Department notes that CPI; Chiieh Yung Metal Industrial Corporation; Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; and Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group were inadvertently added to the separate rate category in the Preliminary Results.

Therefore, the Department removed these companies from the separate rate category. 20 Although, the Department initiated this administrative review on Tianjin Universal Machinery Import and Export Corp., the company name, Tianjin Universal Machinery Imp. & Exp. Corporation, was the only name listed in the business license that was submitted in the separate rate application. Accordingly, the Department is granting a separate rate to Tianjin Universal Machinery Imp. & Exp. Corporation.

The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).21 Where the Department calculated a weightedaverage dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.22 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or perunit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.23 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.24 We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate. Pursuant to the Department’s assessment practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide entity rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide entity rate.25 21 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 22 Id. 23 Id. 24 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Orders This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding.

Certain Steel Nails From the People's Republic of China: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, Final Determination 
of No Shipments and Final Partial Rescission; 2014-2015

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) published the 
Preliminary Results of the seventh administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the People's 
Republic of China (PRC) on September 12, 2016. We gave interested 
parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. Based 
upon our analysis of the comments and information received, we made 
changes to the margin calculation for these final results regarding one 
of the mandatory respondents, Stanley. We also continue to find that 
the other mandatory respondent, Tianjin Lianda Group Co. Ltd. (Tianjin 
Lianda), is not eligible for separate rate status and, thus, is part of 
the PRC-wide entity. The final dumping margins are listed below in the 
``Final Results of Administrative Review'' section of this notice. The 
period of review (``POR'') is August 1, 2014, through July 31, 2015.

DATES: Effective March 20, 2017.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the 
reasons explained in the I&D Memo, we revised the margin calculation 
for Stanley. Accordingly, for the final results, the Department has 
updated the margin to be assigned to companies eligible for a separate 
rate as the revised calculated margin of the sole mandatory respondent, 
Stanley, whose margin is not zero, de minimis, or based on facts 
available, unlike the other mandatory respondent, Tianjin Lianda, whose 
margin is the PRC-wide entity rate of 118.04 percent. The Surrogate 
Values Memo contains further explanation of our changes to the 
surrogate values selected for Stanley's factors of production.\16\ For 
a list of all issues addressed in these final results, please refer to

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

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department preliminarily determined 
that Besco Machinery Industry (Zhejiang) Co., Ltd. (``Besco''), Jining 
Huarong Hardware Products Co., Ltd., Nanjing Yuechang Hardware Co., 
Ltd., PT Enterprise Inc., Shanxi Tuci Broad Wire Products Co., Ltd., 
and Zhejian Gem-Chun Hardware Accessory Co., Ltd. did not have any 
reviewable transactions during the POR.\17\ Consistent with the 
Department's assessment practice in non-market economy (``NME'') cases, 
we completed the review with respect to the above-named companies. 
Based on the certifications submitted by the aforementioned companies, 
and our analysis of CBP information, we continue to determine that 
these companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the 
POR. As noted in the ``Assessment Rates'' section below, the Department 
intends to issue appropriate instructions to CBP for the above-named 
companies based on the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ The Department inadvertently included Certified Products 
International Inc.; Xi'an Metals & Minerals Import & Export Co., 
Ltd.; and Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Import & Export Co., 
Ltd. in the no shipments category in the Preliminary Results. 
Therefore, the Department removed these companies from the no 
shipments category, as discussed in Comment 4 in the Issues and 
Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), the Secretary will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if a party who requested 
the review withdraws the request within 90-days of the date of 
publication of notice of initiation of the requested review. Petitioner 
withdrew its request for an administrative review on CPI, Chiieh Yung 
Metal Industrial Corporation, Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., 
Ltd., and Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group; no other party 
requested a review of these companies.\18\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Accordingly, we are rescinding this review, in part, with respect 
to these companies, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1).\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ The Department notes that CPI; Chiieh Yung Metal Industrial 
Corporation; Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; and 
Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group were inadvertently added to 
the separate rate category in the Preliminary Results. As discussed 
in Comment 4 of the I&D Memo, Petitioner timely withdrew its request 
for reviews on these companies. Therefore, the Department removed 
these companies from the separate rate category.

Final Results of Administrative Review

    The weighted-average dumping margins for the administrative review 
are as follows:
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \20\ Although, the Department initiated this administrative 
review on Tianjin Universal Machinery Import and Export Corp., the 
company name, Tianjin Universal Machinery Imp. & Exp. Corporation, 
was the only name listed in the business license that was submitted 
in the separate rate application. Accordingly, the Department is 
granting a separate rate to Tianjin Universal Machinery Imp. & Exp. 
Corporation.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has 
determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in 
accordance with the final results of this review. The Department 
intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 
days after publication of the final results of this administrative 
review.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\21\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will 
direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the 
resulting per-unit rates.\22\ Where an importer- (or customer-) 
specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 
0.50 percent), the Department will instruct CBP to collect the 
appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.\23\ Where an importer- 
(or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de 
minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.\24\ We intend to instruct 
CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the 
PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate.

    \24\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to the Department's assessment practice, for entries that 
were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide entity rate. 
Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide entity rate.\25\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, a 
zero cash deposit rate will be required for that company); (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not 
listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not 
been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the PRC-Wide rate of 118.04 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC 
exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. The deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed regarding these 
final results within five days of the date of publication of this 
notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written 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 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: March 13, 2017.
Ronald Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
