For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).6 We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment rate calculated in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis. Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. For the PRC-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at an ad valorem rate as appropriate. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For Takayasu, which at the outset of this review was not eligible for a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that established in the final results of this review (except, if the rate is de minimis, where the cash deposit rate will be zero); (2) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and nonPRC exporters not listed above that 5 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). these final results, the Department applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). 6 In VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:34 Jul 24, 2014 Jkt 232001 received a separate rate in a prior completed segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate for the PRC-wide entity, 44.30 percent; 7 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 exporter that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

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 weighted-average 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.

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 in harmony with the Final Determination. This 
notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of 
Timken.

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 
weighted-average dumping margins for the period October 1, 2008, 
through March 31, 2009, are as follows:

Cash Deposit Requirements

    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.''
