The CIT’s February 27, 2015, judgment sustaining the PET Film Final Remand constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with the PET Film Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, the Department will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending the expiration of the period of appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision.

The cash deposit rates for DuPont and Wanhua will remain the rates established for the subsequent and most recent period during which each respondent was reviewed.

On December 18, 2009, the CIT remanded AFBs 16 for the Department to, inter alia, (1) redetermine NTN’s freight expenses using a method that is consistent with the Department’s treatment of the freight expense of other respondents in the administrative review and (2) to redetermine the application of facts otherwise available for information that Nachi submitted on physical bearing characteristics.3 On May 17, 2010, the Department filed its results of redetermination pursuant to remand in accordance with the CIT’s order.4 On July 29, 2011, the CIT affirmed, in part, the Department’s first remand, which resulted in a weighted-average dumping margin of 13.91 percent for Nachi and a weighted-average dumping margin of 8.02 percent for NTN.5 The Court remanded issues regarding Nachi, NTN, and other respondent companies, relating to the Department’s use of zeroing and model match methodology.6 On June 4, 2012, the Court stayed the proceedings pending the appeal of Union Steel v. United States, which concerned zeroing.7 After the Federal Circuit issued its opinion in Union Steel, the Court lifted the stay and ‘‘relieve[d] Commerce of the directive concerning zeroing’’ in JTEKT III but ‘‘maintain[ed] the directive . . . as to the claim brought by NTN’’ pertaining to the model match methodology.8 In Final Second Remand, the Department further explained its analysis of this issue but did not further recalculate the weighted-average dumping margins for any respondents in the litigation.9 The Court affirmed the Department’s second 2 See Ball Bearings and Parts Thereof from France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Reviews, 71 FR 40064 (July 14, 2006) (AFBs 16). 3 See JTEKT Corporation v.

Brazil, India, Japan, Korea, Mexico, and Thailand.

Scope of the Finding/Orders

    The product covered in the sunset reviews of the antidumping duty

which is suitable for use in prestressed concrete (both pre-tensioned 
and post-tensioned) applications. The product definition encompasses 
covered and uncovered strand and all types, grades, and diameters of PC 
strand.
    The product covered in the sunset review of the antidumping duty 
finding on PC strand from Japan is steel wire strand, other than alloy 
steel, not galvanized, which is stress-relieved and suitable for use in 
prestressed concrete.
    The merchandise subject to the finding/orders is currently
