SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the Department) determines that certain cold-rolled steel flat products (coldrolled steel) from the People’s Republic of China (the PRC) are being, or are likely to be, sold in the United States at less than fair value (LTFV), as provided in section 735 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). The period of investigation is January 1, 2015, through June 30, 2015. The estimated weightedaverage dumping margin of sales at LTFV is shown in the ‘‘Final Determination’’ section of this notice. DATES: Effective Date: May 24, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On March 7, 2016, the Department published its preliminary affirmative determination of sales at LTFV and preliminary affirmative determination of critical circumstance in LTFV investigation of cold-rolled steel from the PRC.1 We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary determinations. We only received comments regarding the scope of this 1 See Antidumping Duty Investigation of Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products From the People’s Republic of China: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, and Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 81 FR 11751 (March 7, 2016) (Preliminary Determination). PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32725 Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are certain cold-rolled (cold-reduced), flat-rolled steel products, whether or not annealed, painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances from the PRC. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation,’’ in Appendix I. Since the Preliminary Determination, eight interested parties (i.e., JFE Steel Corporation, Electrolux Home Products, Inc., Electrolux Home Care Products, Inc., ArcelorMittal USA LLC, AK Steel Corporation, Nucor Corporation, Steel Dynamics Inc., and .United States Steel Corporation) commented on the scope of the investigation. The Department reviewed these comments and has made no changes to the scope of the investigation. For further discussion, see the Final Scope Comments Memorandum.2 The scope in Appendix I reflects the final unmodified scope language as it appeared in the Preliminary Determination. Verification The only respondent in the antidumping investigation of cold-rolled steel from the PRC, the PRC-wide entity, did not provide information requested by the Department. Hence, no verification was conducted. Analysis of Comments Received and Changes Since the Preliminary Determination We made no changes to the Preliminary Determination because we received no comments pertaining to the Preliminary Determination. Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances In accordance with section 733(e)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, we preliminarily found critical circumstances exist with respect to imports of certain cold-rolled steel flat products from the PRC-wide entity.3 As stated above, the Department did not receive any comments concerning the preliminary determination. Thus, for the 2 See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Certain ColdRolled Steel Flat Products From Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, India, Japan, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation, and the United Kingdom: Final Scope Comments Decision Memorandum,’’ dated concurrently with this final determination (Final Scope Comments Memorandum). 3 See Preliminary Determination.
