SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 19, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary Results of the administrative review. The Department gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. None were received. The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. The term SSB with respect to the order means articles of stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons or other convex polygons. SSB includes coldfinished SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished products, cut-length flat-rolled products (i.e., cutlength rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections. The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under E:\FR\FM\11MRN1.SGM 11MRN1 12806 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 47 / Wednesday, March 11, 2015 / Notices subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Final Results of Review The Department made no changes to its calculations announced in the Preliminary Results.

Assessment In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 and the Final Modification,2 the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate all appropriate entries for Villares without regard to antidumping duties. Consistent with the Department’s refinement to its assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Villares for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.3 We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 19, 2014, the Department published the Preliminary 
Results of the administrative review. The Department gave interested 
parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results. None were 
received. The Department conducted this review in accordance with 
section 751(a)(2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. The term SSB with 
respect to the order means articles of stainless steel in straight 
lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, 
cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, 
segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, 
hexagons, octagons or other convex polygons. SSB includes cold-finished 
SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced 
from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and 
reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other 
deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified 
above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished 
products, cut-length flat-rolled products (i.e., cut-length rolled 
products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring 
at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness 
having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the 
thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to 
the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and 
sections. The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under

subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). 
Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is 
dispositive.

Final Results of Review

    The Department made no changes to its calculations announced in the 
Preliminary Results. As a result of this review, we determine that a 
weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for Villares for 
the period February 1, 2013, through January 31, 2014.

Assessment

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.212 and the Final Modification,\2\ 
the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
to liquidate all appropriate entries for Villares without regard to 
antidumping duties.

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with the Department's refinement to its assessment 
practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Villares for which it did not know that the merchandise was destined 
for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed 
entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\3\

Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May

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

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of SSB from Brazil entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by

will be 0.00 percent, the weighted average dumping margin established

the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit

will continue to be 19.43 percent, the all-others rate established in

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that

assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely written
