Download as PDF 43397 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 143 / Friday, July 25, 2014 / Notices SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 8, 2010, the Department published the Final Determination. Chinese exporters of steel grating from China, Yantai Xinke, Jiulong, and Haitian appealed the Department’s Final Determination to the CIT, and on July 18, 2012, the Court remanded certain issues to the Department for reconsideration.2 Consistent with the CIT’s holding, in the Steel Grating Final Remand, the Department recalculated Yantai Xinke’s and Haitian’s weightedaverage dumping margins using more contemporaneous surrogate value data, and assigned Jiulong a weighted-average dumping margin separate from that of the PRC-wide entity. The CIT subsequently affirmed the Department’s Steel Grating Final Remand on April 9, 2014. in harmony with the Final Determination. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, as clarified by Diamond Sawblades, the CAFC 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 CIT’s April 9, 2014, judgment sustaining the Steel Grating Final Remand constitutes a final decision of that court that is not Amended Final Determination Because there is now a final court decision with respect to this litigation, the Department is amending its Final Determination with respect to Yantai Xinke’s and Haitian’s weighted-average dumping margins, and is assigning Jiulong a weighted-average dumping margin that is separate from that of the PRC-wide entity. The revised weightedaverage dumping margins for the period October 1, 2008, through March 31, 2009, are as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Producer Exporter Ningbo Haitian International Co., Ltd ......................................... Yantai Xinke Steel Structure Co., Ltd ........................................ Ningbo Jiulong Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd .................... Ningbo Lihong Steel Grating Co., Ltd ........................................ Yantai Xinke Steel Structure Co., Ltd ........................................ Ningbo Jiulong Machinery Manufacturing Co., Ltd .................... Cash Deposit Requirements DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Since the expiration of the period of appeal has concluded, the Department will instruct United States Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to liquidate all entries of subject merchandise which were suspended pending a final and conclusive court decision in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Since the Final Determination, the Department has not established a new cash deposit rate for Yantai Xinke, Haitian or Jiulong. Therefore, consistent with section 751(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will instruct CBP to collect cash deposits for entries of subject merchandise for Yantai Xinke, Haitian and Jiulong (as a party separate from the PRC-wide entity) equal to the weighted-average dumping margin listed above under ‘‘Amended Final Determination.’’ International Trade Administration Notification to Interested Parties emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(e)(1), 751(a)(1), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
