The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be portions of Los Angeles County, California, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is adjacent to the Los Angeles/Long Beach U.S. Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its zone to include existing Site 1 and Site 5 as ‘‘magnet’’ sites and existing Site 12 as a ‘‘usage-driven’’ site. Additionally, as part of the reorganization, the applicant has requested that acreage be reduced at Site 1 (to 509.57 acres) and that Sites 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11 be removed from the zone due to changed circumstances. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 1 be so exempted. No additional subzones/ usage-driven sites are being requested at this time. The application would have no impact on FTZ 191’s previously authorized subzone. In accordance with the FTZ Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the FTZ Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the FTZ Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is January 11, 2016. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to January 26, 2016. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 21013, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the FTZ Board’s Web site, which is accessible via www.trade.gov/ftz.

Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ‘‘Act’’), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this administrative review. Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).6 Where the Department calculated a weighted6 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:15 Nov 10, 2015 Jkt 238001 average dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.7 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or perunit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.8 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or perunit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.9 We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide rate. Pursuant to the Department’s assessment practice, for entries that were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide entity rate. Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter’s case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide entity rate.10 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporter listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, i.e., less than 0.5 percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will 7 Id. 8 Id. 9 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Notification to Importers This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled 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 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 or destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) and the International Trade Commission (the ITC) have determined that revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) order on certain steel grating (steel grating) from the People’s Republic of China (PRC) would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and material injury to an industry in the United States. The Department and the ITC have also determined that revocation of the countervailing duty (CVD) order on steel grating from the PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of net countervailable subsidies and material injury to an industry in the United States.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On June 1, 2015, the Department initiated 1 and the ITC instituted 2 fiveyear (sunset) reviews of the AD and CVD orders on steel grating from the PRC,3 pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). As a result of its reviews, the Department determined that revocation of the AD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping and that revocation of the CVD order would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of net countervailable subsidies. Therefore, the Department notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins and the subsidy rates likely to prevail should the orders be revoked, pursuant to sections 751(c)(1) and 752(b) and (c) of the Act.4 On November 4, 2015, the ITC published its determination that revocation of the AD and CVD orders on steel grating from the PRC would likely lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the United States within a reasonably foreseeable time, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act.5 Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are certain steel grating, consisting of two or more pieces of steel, including load-bearing pieces and cross pieces, joined by any assembly process, regardless of: (1) Size or shape; (2) method of manufacture; (3) metallurgy (carbon, alloy, or stainless); (4) the 1 See Initiation of Five-Year (‘‘Sunset’’) Review, 80 FR 31012 (June 1, 2015). 2 See Certain Steel Grating From China; Institution of Five-Year Reviews, 80 FR 31071 (June 1, 2015). 3 See Certain Steel Grating from the People's Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 75 FR 43143 (July 23, 2010); and Certain Steel Grating from the People's Republic of China: Countervailing Duty Order, 75 FR 43144 (July 23, 2010). 4 See Certain Steel Grating From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of the Expedited First Sunset Review of the Antidumping Duty Order, 80 FR 60119 (October 5, 2015), and Certain Steel Grating From the People's Republic of China: Final Results of Expedited First Sunset Review of the Countervailing Duty Order, 80 FR 60120 (October 5, 2015). 5 See Certain Steel Grating From the People's Republic of China, 80 FR 68334 (November 4, 2015).

U.S. Customs and Border Protection will continue to collect AD and CVD cash deposits at the rates in effect at the time of entry for all imports of subject merchandise. The effective date of the continuation of the AD and CVD orders will be the date of publication in the Federal Register of this notice of continuation. Pursuant to section 751(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(c)(2), the Department intends to initiate the next five-year review of these orders not later than 30 days prior to the fifth anniversary of the effective date of this continuation notice.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we have now 
calculated a dumping margin based on the sales data and factors of 
production (``FOP'') data submitted by the RMB/IFI Group. Additionally, 
the Department has selected Thailand as the primary surrogate country 
and valued the RMB/IFI Group's FOP data/movement expenses with data 
from Thailand. For a list of all issues addressed in these final 
results, please refer to Appendix I accompanying this notice.

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the ``Act''), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), the Department has 
determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall 
assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this 
administrative review.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\6\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will 
direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the 
resulting per-unit rates.\7\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific 
ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis, the Department 
will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of 
liquidation.\8\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem 
or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\9\ We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing

    Pursuant to the Department's assessment practice, for entries that 
were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide entity rate. 
Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide entity rate.\10\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporter 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, 
i.e., less than 0.5 percent, a zero cash deposit rate will be required 
for that company); (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and 
non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate rates, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published 
for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a separate 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-Wide rate of 206 percent; 
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 exporters that supplied that non-PRC exporter. 
The deposit requirements shall remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

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

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled 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 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 or 
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 final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act.

    Dated: November 2, 2015.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
