SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On March 23, 2011, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the final results of the first administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (‘‘steel nails’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 Also on March 23, 2011, respondent Stanley 2 filed a timely allegation that the Department made two ministerial errors in the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the alleged ministerial errors. On March 28, 2011, 1 See Certain Steel Nails From the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of the First Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 76 FR 16379 (March 23, 2011) (‘‘Final Results’’). 2 The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd., the Stanley Works/Stanley Fastening Systems LP, and an unaffiliated wire drawing subcontractor are collectively referred to as ‘‘Stanley’’ in this administrative review. PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23279 Petitioner 3 submitted comments rebutting one of the errors alleged by Stanley. No other party in this proceeding submitted comments on the Department’s final margin calculations. Based upon our analysis of the comments and allegations of ministerial errors, we have made changes to the margin calculations for Stanley, which in turn will also affect the margin for the separate-rate companies, as it was the only individually-reviewed respondent to receive a calculated rate.4 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails include, but are not limited to, nails made of round wire and nails that are cut. Certain steel nails may be of one piece construction or constructed of two or more pieces. Certain steel nails may be produced from any type of steel, and have a variety of finishes, heads, shanks, point types, shaft lengths and shaft diameters. Finishes include, but are not limited to, coating in vinyl, zinc (galvanized, whether by electroplating or hot-dipping one or more times), phosphate cement, and paint. Head styles include, but are not limited to, flat, projection, cupped, oval, brad, headless, double, countersunk, and sinker. Shank styles include, but are not limited to, smooth, barbed, screw threaded, ring shank and fluted shank styles. Screw-threaded nails subject to this proceeding are driven using direct force and not by turning the fastener using a tool that engages with the head. Point styles include, but are not limited to, diamond, blunt, needle, chisel and no point. Finished nails may be sold in bulk, or they may be collated into strips or coils using materials such as plastic, paper, or wire. Certain steel nails subject to this proceeding are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75. Excluded from the scope of this proceeding are roofing nails of all lengths and diameter, whether collated or in bulk, and whether or not galvanized. Steel roofing nails are specifically enumerated and identified in ASTM Standard F 1667 (2005 revision) as Type I, Style 20 nails. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are corrugated nails. A corrugated nail is made of a small strip of corrugated steel with sharp points on one side. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are fasteners suitable 3 Mid 4 See E:\FR\FM\26APN1.SGM Continent Nail Corporation.

Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are thumb tacks, which are currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.10.00. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are certain brads and finish nails that are equal to or less than 0.0720 inches in shank diameter, round or rectangular in cross section, between 0.375 inches and 2.5 inches in length, and that are collated with adhesive or polyester film tape backed with a heat seal adhesive. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are fasteners having a case hardness greater than or equal to 50 HRC, a carbon content greater than or equal to 0.5 percent, a round head, a secondary reduced-diameter raised head section, a centered shank, and a smooth symmetrical point, suitable for use in gas-actuated hand tools. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this proceeding is dispositive. Amended Final Results of the Review The Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘Act’’), defines a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as including ‘‘errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional error which the administering authority considers ministerial.’’ See section 751(h) of the Act; see also 19 CFR 351.224(e). After analyzing Stanley’s comments and Petitioner’s rebuttal comments, we have determined that we made certain ministerial errors, as defined by section 751(h) of the Act, in our calculations for the Final Results. First, we agree with Stanley that we made a ministerial error in the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios of Nasco Steel Pvt., Ltd. (‘‘Nasco’’), which were used in Stanley’s margin calculation. Specifically, the Department inadvertently used the column for total depreciation from Schedule 4 of the financial statement, when we instead intended to use the column for depreciation during the fiscal year. Additionally, when reviewing the financial ratio calculations for Nasco to correct the above error, we also noted another inadvertent error in the calculation for the net change in inventory. Lastly, we disagree with Stanley’s second ministerial error allegation, regarding whether net U.S. prices and normal value were calculated on the same weight basis. The Department’s VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:09 Apr 25, 2011 Jkt 223001 selection of denominators represents an intentional methodological choice consistent with the scope of the order and does not constitute a ministerial error within the context of section 751(h) of the Act or 19 CFR 351.224(f). For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department’s analysis of these errors, see Memorandum to James C. Doyle, from Matthew Renkey, regarding ‘‘First Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Ministerial Error Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with this notice. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results of the administrative review of certain steel nails from the PRC.

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the amended final results, the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the amended final results of review, excluding any reported sales that entered during the gap period.5 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer-specific (or customer-specific) ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of the dumping margins calculated for the Weighted examined sales to the total entered average margin value of those same sales. In accordance (percent) with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate, without regard 10.63 to antidumping duties, all entries of 10.63 subject merchandise during the period 10.63 of review for which the importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de 10.63 minimis. For the companies receiving a separate rate that were not selected for 10.63 individual review, we will calculate an assessment rate based on the simple 10.63 average of the cash deposit rates calculated for the companies selected 10.63 for individual review pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 10.63 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective retroactively on any entries made on or after March 23, 2011, the date of publication of the Final Results, 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 established in the amended final results of this review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, no cash deposit will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that have 5 The gap period represents the period of time after the expiration of the 180-day provisional measures period during the original investigation, to the day prior to the U.S. International Trade Commission’s final determination.

See Bottom Mount Combination Refrigerator-Freezers from the Republic of Korea and Mexico; Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Petitions (collectively, ‘‘the petitions’’). On April 5 and 12, 2011, the Department issued requests for additional information and clarification of certain areas of the antidumping petitions on Korea and Mexico. Based on the Department’s request, the petitioner filed supplements to the petitions on Korea and Mexico on April 11 and 14, 2011. In accordance with section 732(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the petitioner alleges that imports of bottom mount refrigerators from Korea and Mexico are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value, within the meaning of section 731 of the Act, and that such imports materially injure, or threaten material injury to, an industry in the United States. The Department finds that the petitioner filed these petitions on behalf of the domestic industry because the petitioner is an interested party as defined in section 771(9)(C) of the Act, and it has demonstrated sufficient industry support with respect to the investigations that it is requesting the Department to initiate (see ‘‘Determination of Industry Support for the Petitions’’ below).

For a full description of the scope of the investigations, please see the ‘‘Scope of Investigations,’’ in Appendix I of this notice. Comments on Scope of Investigations During our review of the petitions, we discussed the scope with the petitioner to ensure that it is an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief. Moreover, as discussed in the preamble to the regulations (Antidumping Duties; Countervailing Duties; Final Rule, 62 FR 27296, 27323 (May 19, 1997)), we are setting aside a period for interested parties to raise issues regarding product PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 23281 coverage. The Department encourages all interested parties to submit such comments by May 9, 2011, 20 calendar days from the date of signature of this notice. All comments must be filed on the records of the Korea and Mexico antidumping duty investigations as well as the Korea countervailing duty investigation. Comments should be addressed to Import Administration’s APO/Dockets Unit, Room 1870, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230. The period of scope consultations is intended to provide the Department with ample opportunity to consider all comments and to consult with parties prior to the issuance of the preliminary determinations. Comments on Product Characteristics for Antidumping Duty Questionnaires We are requesting comments from interested parties regarding the appropriate physical characteristics of bottom mount refrigerators to be reported in response to the Department’s antidumping questionnaires. This information will be used to identify the key physical characteristics of the subject merchandise in order to more accurately report the relevant costs of production, as well as to develop appropriate product comparison criteria. Interested parties may provide any information or comments that they feel are relevant to the development of an accurate listing of physical characteristics. Specifically, they may provide comments as to which characteristics are appropriate to use as (1) general product characteristics and (2) the product comparison criteria. We note that it is not always appropriate to use all product characteristics as product comparison criteria. We base product comparison criteria on meaningful commercial differences among products. In other words, while there may be some physical product characteristics utilized by manufacturers to describe bottom mount refrigerators, it may be that only a select few product characteristics take into account commercially meaningful physical characteristics. In addition, interested parties may comment on the order in which the physical characteristics should be used in product matching. Generally, the Department attempts to list the most important physical characteristics first and the least important characteristics last.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 23, 2011, the Department of Commerce (``Department'') 
published the final results of the first administrative review of the 
antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (``steel nails'') from 
the People's Republic of China (``PRC'').\1\ Also on March 23, 2011, 
respondent Stanley \2\ filed a timely allegation that the Department 
made two ministerial errors in the Final Results and requested, 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the alleged 
ministerial errors. On March 28, 2011, Petitioner \3\ submitted 
comments rebutting one of the errors alleged by Stanley. No other party 
in this proceeding submitted comments on the Department's final margin 
calculations. Based upon our analysis of the comments and allegations 
of ministerial errors, we have made changes to the margin calculations 
for Stanley, which in turn will also affect the margin for the 
separate-rate companies, as it was the only individually-reviewed 
respondent to receive a calculated rate.\4\

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails 
having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails include, but 
are not limited to, nails made of round wire and nails that are cut. 
Certain steel nails may be of one piece construction or constructed of 
two or more pieces. Certain steel nails may be produced from any type 
of steel, and have a variety of finishes, heads, shanks, point types, 
shaft lengths and shaft diameters. Finishes include, but are not 
limited to, coating in vinyl, zinc (galvanized, whether by 
electroplating or hot-dipping one or more times), phosphate cement, and 
paint. Head styles include, but are not limited to, flat, projection, 
cupped, oval, brad, headless, double, countersunk, and sinker. Shank 
styles include, but are not limited to, smooth, barbed, screw threaded, 
ring shank and fluted shank styles. Screw-threaded nails subject to 
this proceeding are driven using direct force and not by turning the 
fastener using a tool that engages with the head. Point styles include, 
but are not limited to, diamond, blunt, needle, chisel and no point. 
Finished nails may be sold in bulk, or they may be collated into strips 
or coils using materials such as plastic, paper, or wire. Certain steel 
nails subject to this proceeding are currently classified under the 
Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') subheadings 
7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75.
    Excluded from the scope of this proceeding are roofing nails of all 
lengths and diameter, whether collated or in bulk, and whether or not 
galvanized. Steel roofing nails are specifically enumerated and 
identified in ASTM Standard F 1667 (2005 revision) as Type I, Style 20 
nails. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are corrugated 
nails. A corrugated nail is made of a small strip of corrugated steel 
with sharp points on one side. Also excluded from the scope of this 
proceeding are fasteners suitable

[[Page 23280]]

for use in powder-actuated hand tools, not threaded and threaded, which 
are currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.20 and 7317.00.30. Also 
excluded from the scope of this proceeding are thumb tacks, which are 
currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.10.00. Also excluded from the 
scope of this proceeding are certain brads and finish nails that are 
equal to or less than 0.0720 inches in shank diameter, round or 
rectangular in cross section, between 0.375 inches and 2.5 inches in 
length, and that are collated with adhesive or polyester film tape 
backed with a heat seal adhesive. Also excluded from the scope of this 
proceeding are fasteners having a case hardness greater than or equal 
to 50 HRC, a carbon content greater than or equal to 0.5 percent, a 
round head, a secondary reduced-diameter raised head section, a 
centered shank, and a smooth symmetrical point, suitable for use in 
gas-actuated hand tools.
    While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and 
customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this 
proceeding is dispositive.

Amended Final Results of the Review

    The Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``Act''), defines a 
``ministerial error'' as including ``errors in addition, subtraction, 
or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate 
copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type of unintentional 
error which the administering authority considers ministerial.'' See 
section 751(h) of the Act; see also 19 CFR 351.224(e). After analyzing 
Stanley's comments and Petitioner's rebuttal comments, we have 
determined that we made certain ministerial errors, as defined by 
section 751(h) of the Act, in our calculations for the Final Results.
    First, we agree with Stanley that we made a ministerial error in 
the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios of Nasco Steel Pvt., 
Ltd. (``Nasco''), which were used in Stanley's margin calculation. 
Specifically, the Department inadvertently used the column for total 
depreciation from Schedule 4 of the financial statement, when we 
instead intended to use the column for depreciation during the fiscal 
year. Additionally, when reviewing the financial ratio calculations for 
Nasco to correct the above error, we also noted another inadvertent 
error in the calculation for the net change in inventory. Lastly, we 
disagree with Stanley's second ministerial error allegation, regarding 
whether net U.S. prices and normal value were calculated on the same 
weight basis. The Department's selection of denominators represents an 
intentional methodological choice consistent with the scope of the 
order and does not constitute a ministerial error within the context of 
section 751(h) of the Act or 19 CFR 351.224(f). For a detailed 
discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as the Department's 
analysis of these errors, see Memorandum to James C. Doyle, from 
Matthew Renkey, regarding ``First Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review of Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China: 
Ministerial Error Memorandum,'' dated concurrently with this notice.
    Therefore, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results of the administrative 
review of certain steel nails from the PRC. Listed below are the 
revised weighted average dumping margins for these amended final 
results:

Disclosure

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

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the amended final results, the Department will 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. The Department 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date 
of publication of the amended final results of review, excluding any 
reported sales that entered during the gap period.\5\ Pursuant to 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1), we will calculate importer-specific (or customer-
specific) ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of the dumping margins calculated for the examined sales 
to the total entered value of those same sales. In accordance with 19 
CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate, without regard to 
antidumping duties, all entries of subject merchandise during the 
period of review for which the importer-specific assessment rate is 
zero or de minimis. For the companies receiving a separate rate that 
were not selected for individual review, we will calculate an 
assessment rate based on the simple average of the cash deposit rates 
calculated for the companies selected for individual review pursuant to 
section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ The gap period represents the period of time after the 
expiration of the 180-day provisional measures period during the 
original investigation, to the day prior to the U.S. International 
Trade Commission's final determination. In the instant case, the gap 
period is July 22, 2008, to July 24, 2008.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 
retroactively on any entries made on or after March 23, 2011, the date 
of publication of the Final Results, 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 established in the amended final results of this review (except, if 
the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, no cash 
deposit 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. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Reimbursement of Duties

    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 has occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.
    These amended final results are published in accordance with 
sections 751(h) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: April 18, 2011.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
