Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), we will instruct CBP to liquidate without regard to antidumping duties any entries for which the assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent). The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003. See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003) (Assessment Policy Notice). This clarification will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by the company included in these final results of review for which the reviewed company did not know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate effective during the POR if there is no rate for the intermediary involved in the transaction. See Assessment Policy Notice for a full discussion of this clarification. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for the company listed above will be that established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or the original lessthan-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 23.21 percent, the all-others rate made effective by the LTFV investigation.

These deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice. 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 review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties. Notification to Interested Parties This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written notification of return/ destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 1, 2012, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Department’’) published the final results of the second administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails (‘‘steel nails’’) from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘PRC’’).1 On March 5, 2012, certain mandatory and separate rate respondents, as well as Itochu Building Products Co., Inc. (‘‘IBP’’),2 and Stanley 3 filed timely allegations that the Department made ministerial errors in the Final Results and requested, pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224, that the Department correct the alleged ministerial errors. On March 12, 2012, Petitioner 4 submitted comments rebutting the errors alleged by IBP et al. and Stanley. No other party in this proceeding submitted comments on the Department’s final margin calculations. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches.

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 the order 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 the order 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 the order are steel 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 are the following steel nails: (1) Non-collated (i.e., hand-driven or bulk), two-piece steel nails having plastic or steel washers (caps) already assembled to the nail, having a bright or galvanized finish, a ring, fluted or spiral shank, an actual length of 0.500″ to 8″, inclusive; and an actual shank diameter of 0.1015″ to 0.166″, inclusive; and an actual washer or cap diameter of 0.900″ to 1.10″, inclusive; (2) Non-collated (i.e., hand-driven or bulk), steel nails having a bright or galvanized finish, a smooth, barbed or ringed shank, an actual length of 0.500″ to 4″, inclusive; an actual shank diameter of 0.1015″ to 0.166″, inclusive; and an actual head diameter of 0.3375″ to 0.500″, inclusive; (3) Wire collated steel nails, in coils, having a galvanized finish, a smooth, barbed or ringed shank, an actual length of 0.500″ to 1.75″, inclusive; an actual shank diameter of 0.116″ to 0.166″, inclusive; and an actual head diameter of 0.3375″ to 0.500″, inclusive; and (4) Noncollated (i.e., hand-driven or bulk), steel nails having a convex head (commonly known as an umbrella head), a smooth or spiral shank, a galvanized finish, an actual length of 1.75″ to 3″, inclusive; an actual shank diameter of 0.131″ to 0.152″, inclusive; and an actual head diameter of 0.450″ to 0.813″, inclusive. Also excluded from the scope of the order 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 the order are fasteners suitable 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 the order are thumb tacks, which are currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.10.00. Also excluded from the scope of the order 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 the order 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 the order 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). As explained in the memorandum accompanying this notice,5 we do not find that any of the errors alleged by IBP et al. or Stanley are ministerial errors within the meaning of section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e). However, in the course of analyzing IBP et al.’s allegations of ministerial errors, the Department found that it inadvertently miscalculated Jinchi’s importer-specific assessments rates, even though no party had commented on this fact. Therefore, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act, we have determined that we made a ministerial error in our calculation of Jinchi’s importer-specific assessment rates for the Final Results. We note that correcting this error does not change any of the weighted-average margins from the Final Results. For a detailed discussion of this ministerial error, as well as the Department’s analysis of the allegations of ministerial errors, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum. 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).

For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this review. Where appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to that party by the total entered values associated with those transactions. For dutyassessment rates calculated on this basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise.

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). As explained in 
the memorandum accompanying this notice,\5\ we do not find that any of 
the errors alleged by IBP et al. or Stanley are ministerial errors 
within the meaning of section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e). 
However, in the course of analyzing IBP et al.'s allegations of 
ministerial errors, the Department found that it inadvertently 
miscalculated Jinchi's importer-specific assessments rates, even though 
no party had commented on this fact. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 751(h) of the Act, we have determined that we made a 
ministerial error in our calculation of Jinchi's importer-specific 
assessment rates for the Final Results. We note that correcting this 
error does not change any of the weighted-average margins from the 
Final Results. For a detailed discussion of this ministerial error, as 
well as the Department's analysis of the allegations of ministerial 
errors, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
the Department will determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
of subject merchandise in accordance with the amended final results of 
this review. For assessment purposes, we calculated importer (or 
customer)-specific assessment rates for merchandise subject to this 
review. Where appropriate, we calculated an ad valorem rate for each 
importer (or customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for 
reviewed sales to that party by the total entered values associated 
with those transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this 
basis, we will direct CBP to assess the resulting ad valorem rate 
against the entered customs values for the subject merchandise. Where 
appropriate, we calculated a per-unit rate for each importer (or 
customer) by dividing the total dumping margins for reviewed sales to 
that party by the total sales quantity associated with those 
transactions. For duty-assessment rates calculated on this basis, we 
will direct CBP to assess the resulting per-unit rate against the 
entered quantity of the subject merchandise. Where an importer (or 
customer)-specific assessment rate is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 
percent), the Department will instruct CBP to assess that importer (or 
customer's) entries of subject merchandise without regard to 
antidumping duties, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). The 
Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the date of publication of these amended final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the amended final results of this administrative review 
for all shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Stanley, 
Hongli, Jinchi, and the Separate Rate Applicants, the cash deposit rate 
will be their respective rates established in the amended final results 
of this review, except if the rate is zero or de minimis no cash 
deposit will be required; (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, 2012.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Import Administration.
