Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the Department’s written description of the merchandise subject to this proceeding is dispositive. Final Determination of No Shipments As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results on the record of this segment of the proceeding. As there are no changes from, or comments on, the Preliminary Results, the Department finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis. Thus, we continue to find that Ispat, JSW, JSW Ispat, and Tata had no shipments of the subject merchandise, and, therefore, no reviewable transactions, during the POR. Accordingly, no decision memorandum accompanies this Federal Register notice. For further details of the issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results and the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.2 Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. The Department clarified its ‘‘automatic assessment’’ regulation on May 6, 2003.3 If applicable, this clarification will apply to all entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced or exported by Ispat, JSW, JSW Ispat, and Tata, for which these companies did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate these unreviewed entries at the all others rate established in the less-than fair-value (LTFV) investigation, as amended, which is 38.72 percent,4 if there is no rate for the intermediary company(ies) involved in the transaction.

SUMMARY: On September 10, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the 
Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative 
review of the antidumping duty (AD) order on certain hot-rolled carbon 
steel flat products (hot-rolled steel) from India.\1\ We received no

we continue to find that Ispat Industries Ltd. (Ispat), JSW Steel Ltd. 
(JSW), JSW Ispat Steel Ltd. (JSW Ispat), and Tata Steel Ltd. (Tata) had 
no shipments of the subject merchandise, and, therefore, no reviewable 
transactions, during the period of review (POR).

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the 
Preliminary Results on the record of this segment of the proceeding. As 
there are no changes from, or comments on, the Preliminary Results, the 
Department finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis. Thus, 
we continue to find that Ispat, JSW, JSW Ispat, and Tata had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, and, therefore, no reviewable 
transactions, during the POR. Accordingly, no decision memorandum 
accompanies this Federal Register notice. For further details of the 
issues addressed in this proceeding, see the Preliminary Results and 
the accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\2\

Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, titled

Memorandum for the Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review; 2013-2014,'' dated September 2, 2015

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, 
the Department shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries, in accordance with section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212. The Department intends to 
issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the 
final results of this review.
    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\3\ If applicable, this clarification will apply to all 
entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced or exported by 
Ispat, JSW, JSW Ispat, and Tata, for which these companies did not know 
that its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate these un-reviewed entries 
at the all others rate established in the less-than fair-value (LTFV) 
investigation, as amended, which is 38.72 percent,\4\ if there is no 
rate for the intermediary company(ies) involved in the transaction. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.\5\

the companies in the most recently completed review of the companies; 
(2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered 
in this administrative 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 recently completed segment of this 
proceeding; (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 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of 
the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 38.72 percent, the all-
others rate established in the Amended Final Determination. These cash

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 and/or countervailing 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 and/or countervailing 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping 
duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    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 this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

    Dated: December 30, 2015.
