Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case briefs by parties to this 
administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum. A list of the issues raised is attached to this notice as 
an appendix. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document 
and is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service 
System (IA ACCESS). Access to IA ACCESS is available to registered

building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum can be found at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we did not make any 
revisions to the margin calculations for Gerdau.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of this review, we determine that a weighted-average 
dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for Gerdau for the period March 
1, 2012, through February 28, 2013.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

[[Page 63082]]

Assessment Rates

    The Department shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries. Because Gerdau's weighted-average dumping margin is zero, we 
will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in 
accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., 
``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter 
is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be 
assessed.'' \5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 80102 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Gerdau for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ For a full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping 
and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping 
Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
these final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of SSB from Spain entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by 
section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) 
The cash deposit rate for Gerdau will be the rate established in the 
final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise 
exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but 
covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, 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 prior review, or the original 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; (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 25.77 percent,\7\ the all-others rate established in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Than Fair Value: Stainless Steel Bar From Spain, 59 FR 66931

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

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and terms of an APO 
is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
