SUMMARY: On September 7, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) issued a decision not in harmony with the final determination of the Department of Commerce (the Department) that stainless steel plate in coils (SSPC) from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan with TKELLEY on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:59 May 21, 2013 Jkt 229001 a nominal thickness of 4.75 millimeters (mm), but an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm, is subject to the AD and CVD Orders on SSPC.1 On March 26, 2013, the United States Court of International Trade (CIT) sustained the Department’s results of redetermination issued in accordance with the CAFC’s decision in ArcelorMittal.2 Those results of redetermination found that SSPC with an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm, regardless of its nominal thickness, is not subject to the AD and CVD Orders on SSPC.3 Consistent with the CAFC’s decision in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (Diamond Sawblades), the Department is notifying the public that the final CAFC judgment in this case is not in harmony with the Department’s final determination and is amending its Final Scope Ruling concerning SSPC with a 1 See ArcelorMittal Stainless Belgium N.V. v. United States, 694 F.3d 82 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (ArcelorMittal). Because the description of the scopes in the multiple SSPC orders is identical and given the nature of the inquiry, the Department has considered it appropriate pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(m) to conduct a single inquiry and issue a single scope ruling that applies to all such orders.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Having received a scope inquiry request from ArcelorMittal Stainless Belgium N.V. (AMS Belgium),5 the Department, on December 3, 2008, issued its Final Scope Ruling in which it relied upon 19 CFR 351.225(k)(2) to determine that SSPC with a nominal thickness of 4.75mm, but with an actual thickness less than 4.75mm, is included within the scope of the AD and CVD Orders.6 Following a request for a voluntary remand, the CIT remanded the Final Scope Ruling to the Department to reconsider whether SSPC with a nominal thickness of 4.75 mm, but an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm, is subject to the AD and CVD Orders.7 In remanding the case, the Court directed the Department to apply 19 CFR 351.225, in conjunction with the decisions of the CAFC in Duferco Inc. v. United States, 296 F.3d 1087 (Fed. Cir. 2002), and Tak Fat Trading Co. v. United States, 396 F. 3d 1378 (Fed.

On September 7, 2012, the CAFC reversed the CIT’s judgment. The CAFC concluded that substantial evidence did not support the Department’s determination that the language of the SSPC orders is ambiguous and held that ‘‘the plain meaning of the orders regarding the 4.75 mm thickness is a reference to actual thickness of products subject to the orders.’’ 13 On January 4, 2013, the CIT issued a remand order directing the Department to take action in accordance with the CAFC’s decision in ArcelorMittal and to find that SSPC with an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm is outside the scope of the AD and CVD Orders.14 Pursuant to that order, the Department construed the scope of the AD and CVD Orders so that SSPC from Belgium with an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm is not subject to the AD and CVD Orders on SSPC, regardless of its nominal thickness.15 The CIT sustained the Department’s remand redetermination on March 26, 2013.16 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC has held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision.

On March 29, 2013, the Department published a notice of initiation of an administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil with respect to two companies.2 The Department stated in its initiation of this review that it intended to rely on U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data to select respondents.3 However, our review of the CBP database, with respect to the companies for which this review was requested, showed no entries of subject merchandise during the POR.4 We released the results of our CBP data query to the Domestic Producers, the only interested party to this segment of the proceeding, and invited them to comment on the CBP data. We received no comments on the CBP data. On April 4, 2013, we sent a ‘‘No Shipments Inquiry’’ to CBP to confirm that there were no shipments or entries of subject merchandise during the POR from the companies subject to review. We received no information from CBP to contradict the results of our data query. On April 29, 2013, we stated that because information from CBP indicates that there were no entries of subject merchandise during the POR from the companies covered by this review, we intend to rescind this review.5 We invited parties to comment on our intent to rescind this administrative review. We did not receive comments from any interested party. Rescission of Review Section 351.213(d)(3) of the Department’s regulations stipulates that the Secretary may rescind an administrative review if there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR. As there were no entries, exports, or sales of the subject merchandise during the POR, we are rescinding this review of the antidumping duty order on certain frozen warmwater shrimp from Brazil pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(3). We intend to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of this notice of rescission of administrative review. 2 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 78 FR 19197 (March 29, 2013). 3 See id. 4 See April 3, 2013, Memorandum to the File entitled ‘‘Release of Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Data.’’ 5 See April 29, 2013, Memorandum to James Maeder, Director, Office 2, AD/CVD Operations, entitled ‘‘Intent to Rescind Administrative Review.’’ E:\FR\FM\22MYN1.SGM 22MYN1

Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Belgium, South Africa, and 
Taiwan: Notice of Court Decision Not in Harmony With Final Scope Ruling 
and Notice of Amended Final Scope Ruling Pursuant to Court Decision

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

SUMMARY: On September 7, 2012, the United States Court of Appeals for 
the Federal Circuit (CAFC) issued a decision not in harmony with the 
final determination of the Department of Commerce (the Department) that 
stainless steel plate in coils (SSPC) from Belgium, South Africa, and 
Taiwan with a nominal thickness of 4.75 millimeters (mm), but an actual 
thickness of less than 4.75 mm, is subject to the AD and CVD Orders on 
SSPC.\1\ On March 26, 2013, the United States Court of International 
Trade (CIT) sustained the Department's results of redetermination 
issued in accordance with the CAFC's decision in ArcelorMittal.\2\ 
Those results of redetermination found that SSPC with an actual 
thickness of less than 4.75 mm, regardless of its nominal thickness, is 
not subject to the AD and CVD Orders on SSPC.\3\ Consistent with the 
CAFC's decision in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 
1990) (Timken), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. 
United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (Diamond Sawblades), the 
Department is notifying the public that the final CAFC judgment in this 
case is not in harmony with the Department's final determination and is 
amending its Final Scope Ruling concerning SSPC with a nominal 
thickness of 4.75 mm, but an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See ArcelorMittal Stainless Belgium N.V. v. United States, 
694 F.3d 82 (Fed. Cir. 2012) (ArcelorMittal). Because the 
description of the scopes in the multiple SSPC orders is identical 
and given the nature of the inquiry, the Department has considered 
it appropriate pursuant to 19 CFR 351.225(m) to conduct a single 
inquiry and issue a single scope ruling that applies to all such 
orders. See Notice of Amended Final Determinations: Stainless Steel 
Plate in Coils from Belgium and South Africa; and Notice of

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Having received a scope inquiry request from 
ArcelorMittal Stainless Belgium N.V. (AMS Belgium),\5\ the Department, 
on December 3, 2008, issued its Final Scope Ruling in which it relied 
upon 19 CFR 351.225(k)(2) to determine that SSPC with a nominal 
thickness of 4.75mm, but with an actual thickness less than 4.75mm, is 
included within the scope of the AD and CVD Orders.\6\

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

    Following a request for a voluntary remand, the CIT remanded the 
Final Scope Ruling to the Department to reconsider whether SSPC with a 
nominal thickness of 4.75 mm, but an actual thickness of less than 4.75 
mm, is subject to the AD and CVD Orders.\7\ In remanding the case, the 
Court directed the Department to apply 19 CFR 351.225, in conjunction 
with the decisions of the CAFC in Duferco Inc. v. United States, 296 
F.3d 1087 (Fed. Cir. 2002), and Tak Fat Trading Co. v. United States, 
396 F. 3d 1378 (Fed. Cir. 2005).\8\

    \8\ See id. at 1-2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On remand, the Department re-examined the language of the scope 
and, based in part upon interpreting the language in the context of the 
SSPC industry, determined it to be ambiguous as to whether it covers 
SSPC with a nominal thickness of 4.75 mm, but an actual thickness of 
less than 4.75 mm.\9\ Having found the scope language ambiguous, the 
Department then analyzed the criteria specified by 19 CFR 
351.225(k)(1), i.e., ``descriptions of the merchandise contained in the 
petition, the initial investigation, and the determinations of the 
Secretary (including prior scope determinations) and the {International 
Trade

[[Page 30272]]

Commission{time} ,'' and found those to be non-dispositive as well.\10\ 
The Department thus reincorporated its earlier analysis under 19 CFR 
351.225(k)(2) to conclude that SSPC with a nominal thickness greater 
than or equal to 4.75 mm regardless of the actual thickness is included 
within the scope of the AD and CVD Orders.\11\

    \11\ See id. at 25.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On July 12, 2011, the CIT sustained the Department's First Remand 
Redetermination.\12\ AMS Belgium appealed the CIT's final judgment to 
the CAFC.

    \12\ See ArcelorMittal Stainless Belg. N.V. v. United States, 
Court No. 08-00434, Slip Op. 11-82 (Ct. Int'l Trade July 12, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On September 7, 2012, the CAFC reversed the CIT's judgment. The 
CAFC concluded that substantial evidence did not support the 
Department's determination that the language of the SSPC orders is 
ambiguous and held that ``the plain meaning of the orders regarding the 
4.75 mm thickness is a reference to actual thickness of products 
subject to the orders.'' \13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See ArcelorMittal, 694 F.3d at 88-90.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On January 4, 2013, the CIT issued a remand order directing the 
Department to take action in accordance with the CAFC's decision in 
ArcelorMittal and to find that SSPC with an actual thickness of less 
than 4.75 mm is outside the scope of the AD and CVD Orders.\14\ 
Pursuant to that order, the Department construed the scope of the AD 
and CVD Orders so that SSPC from Belgium with an actual thickness of 
less than 4.75 mm is not subject to the AD and CVD Orders on SSPC, 
regardless of its nominal thickness.\15\ The CIT sustained the 
Department's remand redetermination on March 26, 2013.\16\

Timken Notice

    In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341, as clarified by Diamond 
Sawblades, the CAFC has held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), the Department must publish a 
notice of a court decision that is not ``in harmony'' with a Department 
determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a 
``conclusive'' court decision. The CAFC's September 7, 2012, judgment 
in ArcelorMittal constitutes a final decision of that court that is not 
in harmony with the Department's Final Scope Ruling. This notice is 
published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken.

Amended Final Scope Ruling

    Because there is now a final court decision with respect to SSPC 
with an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm, the Department amends 
its Final Scope Ruling and now finds that the scope of the AD and CVD 
Orders excludes SSPC with an actual thickness of less than 4.75 mm, 
regardless of its nominal thickness. Accordingly, the Department will 
issue revised instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection.
    This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 
516A(c)(1) of the Act.
