The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘usagedriven’’ FTZ sites for operators/users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the FTZ Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a zone. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u), and the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally docketed on May 17, 2016. FTZ 93 was approved by the FTZ Board on November 4, 1983 (Board Order 233, 48 FR 52108, November 16, 1983) and reorganized under the ASF on November 30, 2012 (Board Order 1872, 77 FR 73978–73979, December 12, 2012), and the service area was expanded on January 9, 2015 (Board Order 1963, 80 FR 3551, January 23, 2015). The zone currently has a service area that includes the Counties of Chatham, Durham, Franklin, Granville, Harnett, Johnston, Lee, Moore, Orange, Person, Sampson, Vance, Wake and Warren. The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the service area of the zone to include Wilson County, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the expanded service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The application indicates that the proposed expanded service area is adjacent to the RaleighDurham Customs and Border Protection port of entry.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ‘‘Department’’) determines that certain cold-rolled steel flat products (‘‘cold-rolled steel’’) from Japan are being, or 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’’). JFE Steel Corporation (‘‘JFE’’) and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (‘‘NSSMC’’) are the mandatory respondents in this investigation. The period of investigation (‘‘POI’’) is July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. The estimated weighted average dumping margins of AGENCY: PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32721 sales at LTFV are shown in the ‘‘Final Determination’’ section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On March 7, 2016, the Department published its preliminary affirmative determination of sales at LTFV and preliminary affirmative determination of critical circumstances, in part, in the LTFV investigation of cold-rolled steel from Japan.1 We invited interested parties to comment on our preliminary determination. We only received comments regarding the scope of this investigation. No interested party requested a hearing. 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. 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 1 See Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products From Japan: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 81 FR 11747 (March 7, 2016) (‘‘Preliminary Determination’’). 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).

Weightedaverage margin Exporter/Producer Verification None of the mandatory respondents in the investigation provided 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 Determinations of Critical Circumstances, in Part In accordance with section 733(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, we preliminarily found critical circumstances exist with respect to both of the mandatory respondents in the investigation of cold-rolled steel from Japan. With respect to the ‘‘All-Others’’ group, we preliminarily found that critical circumstances did not exist.3 As stated above, the Department did not receive any comments concerning the preliminary determination. Thus, for the final determination, we continue to find that, in accordance with section 735(a)(3) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, critical circumstances exist with respect to both mandatory respondents and that critical circumstances do not exist for the non-individually examined companies receiving the ‘‘All-Others’’ rate in this investigation. Use of Adverse Facts Available As stated in the Preliminary Determination, neither JFE nor NSSMC responded to the Department’s questionnaire.4 Accordingly, for the final determination, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act, we applied adverse facts available to JFE and NSSMC. Final Determination sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES As stated above, we made no changes to our preliminary affirmative LTFV determination. Therefore, we continue to determine that the following estimated weighted-average dumping margin exists for the following producers or exporters for the period July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:24 May 23, 2016 Jkt 238001 All-Others .......................... 71.35 percent. In addition, the Department continues to determine that voluntary respondent Hitachi Metals Limited had no sales of subject merchandise during to POI to examine. All-Others Rate We cannot apply the methodology described in section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act to calculate the ‘‘All-Others’’ rate, as all of the margins in the preliminary determination were calculated under section 776 of the Act.5 In cases where no weighted-average dumping margins besides zero, de minimis, or those determined entirely under section 776 of the Act have been established for individually estimated entities, in accordance with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department averages the margins calculated by the Petitioners in the Petition and applies the result to ‘‘All-Other’’ entities not individually examined. In this case, however, Petitioners calculated only one margin in the Petition. Therefore, for the final determination, we continue to assign as the ‘‘All-Others’’ rate the only margin in the Petition, which is 71.35 percent.6 Continuation and Partial Termination of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(4)(A) of the Act, for the final determination, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (‘‘CBP’’) to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries of cold-rolled steel from Japan, as described in the scope of the investigation, from the mandatory respondents (i.e., JFE and NSSMC) that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after December 8, 2015, 90 days prior to the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination because we continue to find that critical circumstances exist with regard to imports exported by the mandatory respondents.

Disclosure We described the calculations used to determine the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins based on adverse facts available, in the Preliminary Determination. We made no changes to our calculations since the Preliminary Determination. Thus, no additional disclosure of calculations is necessary for this final determination. International Trade Commission Notification In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the International Trade Commission (‘‘ITC’’) of our final affirmative determination of sales at LTFV and final affirmative determination of critical circumstances, in part. Because the final determination in the proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of cold-rolled steel from Japan no later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that such injury does not exist, this proceeding will be terminated and all securities posted will be refunded or canceled. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the Department will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties on appropriate imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders This notice will serve as a reminder to the parties subject to administrative protective order (‘‘APO’’) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APOs in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial protective order is hereby requested.

Paul Piquado, Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. sradovich on DSK3TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Appendix I Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are certain cold-rolled (cold reduced), flatrolled steel products, whether or not annealed, painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances. The products covered do not include those that are clad, plated, or coated with metal. The products covered include coils that have a width or other lateral measurement (‘‘width’’) of 12.7 mm or greater, regardless of form of coil (e.g., in successively superimposed layers, spirally oscillating, etc.). The products covered also include products not in coils (e.g., in straight lengths) of a thickness less than 4.75 mm and a width that is 12.7 mm or greater and that measures at least 10 times the thickness. The products covered also include products not in coils (e.g., in straight lengths) of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more and a width exceeding 150 mm and measuring at least twice the thickness. The products described above may be rectangular, square, circular, or other shape and include products of either rectangular or non-rectangular cross section where such cross-section is achieved subsequent to the rolling process, i.e., products which have been ‘‘worked after rolling’’ (e.g., products which have been beveled or rounded at the edges). For purposes of the width and thickness requirements referenced above: (1) Where the nominal and actual measurements vary, a product is within the scope if application of either the nominal or actual measurement would place it within the scope based on the definitions set forth above, and (2) where the width and thickness vary for a specific product (e.g., the thickness of certain products with non-rectangular crosssection, the width of certain products with non-rectangular shape, etc.), the measurement at its greatest width or thickness applies. Steel products included in the scope of these investigations are products in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (3) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: • 2.50 percent of manganese, or • 3.30 percent of silicon, or • 1.50 percent of copper, or • 1.50 percent of aluminum, or • 1.25 percent of chromium, or • 0.30 percent of cobalt, or VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:24 May 23, 2016 Jkt 238001 • 0.40 percent of lead, or • 2.00 percent of nickel, or • 0.30 percent of tungsten (also called wolfram), or • 0.80 percent of molybdenum, or • 0.10 percent of niobium (also called columbium), or • 0.30 percent of vanadium, or • 0.30 percent of zirconium. Unless specifically excluded, products are included in this scope regardless of levels of boron and titanium. For example, specifically included in this scope are vacuum degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-free (‘‘IF’’)) steels, high strength low alloy (‘‘HSLA’’) steels, motor lamination steels, Advanced High Strength Steels (‘‘AHSS’’), and Ultra High Strength Steels (‘‘UHSS’’). IF steels are recognized as low carbon steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as titanium and/or niobium added to stabilize carbon and nitrogen elements. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, titanium, vanadium, and molybdenum. Motor lamination steels contain micro-alloying levels of elements such as silicon and aluminum. AHSS and UHSS are considered high tensile strength and high elongation steels, although AI–ISS and UHSS are covered whether or not they are high tensile strength or high elongation steels. Subject merchandise includes cold-rolled steel that has been further processed in a third country, including but not limited to annealing, tempering, painting, varnishing, trimming, cutting, punching, and/or slitting, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of manufacture of the cold-rolled steel. All products that meet the written physical description, and in which the chemistry quantities do not exceed any one of the noted element levels listed above, are within the scope of this investigation unless specifically excluded. The following products are outside of and/or specifically excluded from the scope of this investigation: • Ball bearing steels;7 • Tool steels;8 7 Ball bearing steels are defined as steels which contain, in addition to iron, each of the following elements by weight in the amount specified: (i) Not less than 0.95 nor more than 1.13 percent of carbon; (ii) not less than 0.22 nor more than 0.48 percent of manganese; (iii) none, or not more than 0.03 percent of sulfur; (iv) none, or not more than 0.03 percent of phosphorus; (v) not less than 0.18 nor more than 0.37 percent of silicon; (vi) not less than 1.25 nor more than 1.65 percent of chromium; (vii) none, or not more than 0.28 percent of nickel; (viii) none, or not more than 0.38 percent of copper; and (ix) none, or not more than 0.09 percent of molybdenum. 8 Tool steels are defined as steels which contain the following combinations of elements in the quantity by weight respectively indicated: (i) More than 1.2 percent carbon and more than 10.5 percent chromium; or (ii) not less than 0.3 percent carbon PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32723 • Silico-manganese steel;9 • Grain-oriented electrical steels (‘‘GOES’’) as defined in the final determination of the U.S. Department of Commerce in GrainOriented Electrical Steel From Germany, Japan, and Poland.10 • Non-Oriented Electrical Steels (‘‘NOES’’), as defined in the antidumping orders issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce in Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From the People’s Republic of China, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan.11 Also excluded from the scope of this investigation is ultra-tempered automotive steel, which is hardened, tempered, surface polished, and meets the following specifications: • Thickness: less than or equal to 1.0 mm; • Width: less than or equal to 330 mm; • Chemical composition: and 1.25 percent or more but less than 10.5 percent chromium; or (iii) not less than 0.85 percent carbon and 1 percent to 1.8 percent, inclusive, manganese; or (iv) 0.9 percent to 1.2 percent, inclusive, chromium and 0.9 percent to 1.4 percent, inclusive, molybdenum; or (v) not less than 0.5 percent carbon and not less than 3.5 percent molybdenum; or (vi) not less than 0.5 percent carbon and not less than 5.5 percent tungsten. 9 Silico-manganese steel is defined as steels containing by weight: (i) Not more than 0.7 percent of carbon; (ii) 0.5 percent or more but not more than 1.9 percent of manganese, and (iii) 0.6 percent or more but not more than 2.3 percent of silicon. 10 See Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel From Germany, Japan, and Poland: Final Determinations of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Certain Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 79 FR 42,501, 42,503 (July 22, 2014) (‘‘Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel From Germany, Japan, and Poland’’). This determination defines grain-oriented electrical steel as ‘‘a flat-rolled alloy steel product containing by weight at least 0.6 percent but not more than 6 percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent of carbon, not more than 1.0 percent of aluminum, and no other element in an amount that would give the steel the characteristics of another alloy steel, in coils or in straight lengths.’’ 11 See Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From the People’s Republic of China, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan: Antidumping Duty Orders, 79 FR 71,741, 71,741– 42 (December 3, 2014) (‘‘Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From the People’s Republic of China, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and Taiwan’’). The orders define NOES as ‘‘coldrolled, flat-rolled, alloy steel products, whether or not in coils, regardless of width, having an actual thickness of 0.20 mm or more, in which the core loss is substantially equal in any direction of magnetization in the plane of the material. The term ‘substantially equal’ means that the cross grain direction of core loss is no more than 1.5 times the straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling direction) of core loss. NOES has a magnetic permeability that does not exceed 1.65 Tesla when tested at a field of 800 A/m (equivalent to 10 Oersteds) along (i.e., parallel to) the rolling direction of the sheet (i.e., B800 value).

Intended Use: The instrument will be used to grow high quality bulk single crystals of a variety of complex quantum materials including multiferroics, ferroelectrics and low-symmetry magnets. Research projects will include the duality PO 00000 Frm 00007 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 S Less than or equal to 0.006. between FR and PUA states in hexagonal manganites, the duality between Ising triangular antiferromagnetism and improper ferroelectricity in hexagonal systems, the domains and domain walls in other polar or chiral magnets, the domains and domain walls in new hybrid improper ferroelectrics, the domains and domain walls in metastable phases at the phase boundaries, and magnetic skyrmion in non-centrosymmetric magnets. The instrument is equipped with 5 high power (1000 W in total) continuous wavelength laser diodes as a heating source. Five lasers ensure temperature homogeneity along the azimuthal direction around the crystal rod to be greater than 95%. The maximum temperature gradient along the growth direction is greater than 150 degrees Celsius/mm. Crystal growth can go from extremely stable and slow growth to very rapid quenching mode, 0.01 to 300 mm/h. This enables the growth of incongruently melting and highly evaporating materials.

Certain Cold-Rolled Steel Flat Products From Japan: Final 
Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final 
Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.
SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (the ``Department'') determines 
that certain cold-rolled steel flat products (``cold-rolled steel'') 
from Japan are being, or 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''). JFE Steel Corporation 
(``JFE'') and Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (``NSSMC'') are 
the mandatory respondents in this investigation. The period of 
investigation (``POI'') is July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2015. The 
estimated weighted average dumping margins of sales at LTFV are shown 
in the ``Final Determination'' section of this notice.

DATES:  Effective Date: May 24, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 7, 2016, the Department published its preliminary 
affirmative determination of sales at LTFV and preliminary affirmative 
determination of critical circumstances, in part, in the LTFV 
investigation of cold-rolled steel from Japan.\1\ We invited interested 
parties to comment on our preliminary determination. We only received 
comments regarding the scope of this investigation. No interested party 
requested a hearing.

Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair 
Value and Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical 
Circumstances, 81 FR 11747 (March 7, 2016) (``Preliminary 
Determination'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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. 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

    \2\ See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant 
Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, 
``Certain Cold-Rolled 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).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Verification

    None of the mandatory respondents in the investigation provided 
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 Determinations of Critical Circumstances, in Part

    In accordance with section 733(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, we 
preliminarily found critical circumstances exist with respect to both 
of the mandatory respondents in the investigation of cold-rolled steel 
from Japan. With respect to the ``All-Others'' group, we preliminarily 
found that critical circumstances did not exist.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See Preliminary Determination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    As stated above, the Department did not receive any comments 
concerning the preliminary determination. Thus, for the final 
determination, we continue to find that, in accordance with section 
735(a)(3) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206, critical circumstances exist 
with respect to both mandatory respondents and that critical 
circumstances do not exist for the non-individually examined companies 
receiving the ``All-Others'' rate in this investigation.

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    As stated in the Preliminary Determination, neither JFE nor NSSMC 
responded to the Department's questionnaire.\4\ Accordingly, for the 
final determination, pursuant to section 776(b) of the Act, we applied 
adverse facts available to JFE and NSSMC.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Id.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination

    As stated above, we made no changes to our preliminary affirmative 
LTFV determination. Therefore, we continue to determine that the 
following estimated weighted-average dumping margin exists for the 
following producers or exporters for the period July 1, 2014 through 
June 30, 2015.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
             Exporter/Producer                Weighted- average margin
------------------------------------------------------------------------
JFE Steel Corporation.....................  71.35 percent.
Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation.  71.35 percent.
All-Others................................  71.35 percent.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In addition, the Department continues to determine that voluntary 
respondent Hitachi Metals Limited had no sales of subject merchandise 
during to POI to examine.

All-Others Rate

    We cannot apply the methodology described in section 735(c)(5)(A) 
of the Act to calculate the ``All-Others'' rate, as all of the margins 
in the preliminary determination were calculated under section 776 of 
the Act.\5\ In cases where no weighted-average dumping margins besides 
zero, de minimis, or those determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act have been established for individually estimated entities, in 
accordance with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, the Department 
averages the margins calculated by the Petitioners in the Petition and 
applies the result to ``All-Other'' entities not individually examined. 
In this case, however, Petitioners calculated only one margin in the 
Petition. Therefore, for the final determination, we continue to assign 
as the ``All-Others'' rate the only margin in the Petition, which is 
71.35 percent.\6\

Continuation and Partial Termination of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(4)(A) of the Act, for the final 
determination, we will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(``CBP'') to continue to suspend liquidation of all entries of cold-
rolled steel from Japan, as described in the scope of the 
investigation, from the mandatory respondents (i.e., JFE and NSSMC) 
that are entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after December 8, 2015, 90 days prior to the date of publication of the 
Preliminary Determination because we continue to find that critical 
circumstances exist with regard to imports exported by the mandatory 
respondents. In accordance with sections 733(d)(2) and 735(c)(1)(B) of 
the Act, for the final determination, we will direct CBP to continue 
the suspension of liquidation of all entries of cold-rolled steel from 
Japan, as described in the ``Scope of the Investigation'' section, from 
companies receiving the ``All-Others'' rate which were entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 7, 2016, 
the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination.

Disclosure

    We described the calculations used to determine the estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins based on adverse facts available, in 
the Preliminary Determination. We made no changes to our calculations 
since the Preliminary Determination. Thus, no additional disclosure of 
calculations is necessary for this final determination.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
International Trade Commission (``ITC'') of our final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV and final affirmative determination of 
critical circumstances, in part. Because the final determination in the 
proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the 
Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the 
domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or 
threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of cold-rolled 
steel from Japan no later than 45 days after our final determination. 
If the ITC determines that such injury does not exist, this proceeding 
will be terminated and all securities posted will be refunded or 
canceled. If the ITC determines that such injury does exist, the 
Department will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
on appropriate imports of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the 
suspension of liquidation.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice will serve as a reminder to the parties subject to 
administrative protective order (``APO'') of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under 
APOs in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305. Timely written notification of 
return or destruction of APO materials or conversion to judicial 
protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the 
regulations and the terms of an APO is a

[[Page 32723]]

sanctionable violation. We are issuing and publishing this 
determination in accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.210(c).

    Dated: May 16, 2016.

Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Appendix I

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. The products covered do not include those that 
are clad, plated, or coated with metal. The products covered include 
coils that have a width or other lateral measurement (``width'') of 
12.7 mm or greater, regardless of form of coil (e.g., in 
successively superimposed layers, spirally oscillating, etc.). The 
products covered also include products not in coils (e.g., in 
straight lengths) of a thickness less than 4.75 mm and a width that 
is 12.7 mm or greater and that measures at least 10 times the 
thickness. The products covered also include products not in coils 
(e.g., in straight lengths) of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more and a 
width exceeding 150 mm and measuring at least twice the thickness. 
The products described above may be rectangular, square, circular, 
or other shape and include products of either rectangular or non-
rectangular cross section where such cross-section is achieved 
subsequent to the rolling process, i.e., products which have been 
``worked after rolling'' (e.g., products which have been beveled or 
rounded at the edges). For purposes of the width and thickness 
requirements referenced above:
    (1) Where the nominal and actual measurements vary, a product is 
within the scope if application of either the nominal or actual 
measurement would place it within the scope based on the definitions 
set forth above, and
    (2) where the width and thickness vary for a specific product 
(e.g., the thickness of certain products with non-rectangular cross-
section, the width of certain products with non-rectangular shape, 
etc.), the measurement at its greatest width or thickness applies.
    Steel products included in the scope of these investigations are 
products in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of 
the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or 
less, by weight; and (3) none of the elements listed below exceeds 
the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated:
     2.50 percent of manganese, or
     3.30 percent of silicon, or
     1.50 percent of copper, or
     1.50 percent of aluminum, or
     1.25 percent of chromium, or
     0.30 percent of cobalt, or
     0.40 percent of lead, or
     2.00 percent of nickel, or
     0.30 percent of tungsten (also called wolfram), or
     0.80 percent of molybdenum, or
     0.10 percent of niobium (also called columbium), or
     0.30 percent of vanadium, or
     0.30 percent of zirconium.
    Unless specifically excluded, products are included in this 
scope regardless of levels of boron and titanium.
    For example, specifically included in this scope are vacuum 
degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-
free (``IF'')) steels, high strength low alloy (``HSLA'') steels, 
motor lamination steels, Advanced High Strength Steels (``AHSS''), 
and Ultra High Strength Steels (``UHSS''). IF steels are recognized 
as low carbon steels with micro-alloying levels of elements such as 
titanium and/or niobium added to stabilize carbon and nitrogen 
elements. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro-alloying 
levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, titanium, 
vanadium, and molybdenum. Motor lamination steels contain micro-
alloying levels of elements such as silicon and aluminum. AHSS and 
UHSS are considered high tensile strength and high elongation 
steels, although AI-ISS and UHSS are covered whether or not they are 
high tensile strength or high elongation steels.
    Subject merchandise includes cold-rolled steel that has been 
further processed in a third country, including but not limited to 
annealing, tempering, painting, varnishing, trimming, cutting, 
punching, and/or slitting, or any other processing that would not 
otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigation 
if performed in the country of manufacture of the cold-rolled steel.
    All products that meet the written physical description, and in 
which the chemistry quantities do not exceed any one of the noted 
element levels listed above, are within the scope of this 
investigation unless specifically excluded. The following products 
are outside of and/or specifically excluded from the scope of this 
investigation:

weight: (i) Not more than 0.7 percent of carbon; (ii) 0.5 percent or 
more but not more than 1.9 percent of manganese, and (iii) 0.6 
percent or more but not more than 2.3 percent of silicon.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Grain-oriented electrical steels (``GOES'') as defined 
in the final determination of the U.S. Department of Commerce in 
Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel From Germany, Japan, and Poland.\10\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Grain-Oriented Electrical Steel From Germany, Japan, 
and Poland: Final Determinations of Sales at Less Than Fair Value 
and Certain Final Affirmative Determination of Critical 
Circumstances, 79 FR 42,501, 42,503 (July 22, 2014) (``Grain-
Oriented Electrical Steel From Germany, Japan, and Poland''). This 
determination defines grain-oriented electrical steel as ``a flat-
rolled alloy steel product containing by weight at least 0.6 percent 
but not more than 6 percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent 
of carbon, not more than 1.0 percent of aluminum, and no other 
element in an amount that would give the steel the characteristics 
of another alloy steel, in coils or in straight lengths.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     Non-Oriented Electrical Steels (``NOES''), as defined 
in the antidumping orders issued by the U.S. Department of Commerce 
in Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From the People's Republic of 
China, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, and 
Taiwan.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From the People's 
Republic of China, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, Sweden, 
and Taiwan: Antidumping Duty Orders, 79 FR 71,741, 71,741-42 
(December 3, 2014) (``Non-Oriented Electrical Steel From the 
People's Republic of China, Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea, 
Sweden, and Taiwan''). The orders define NOES as ``cold-rolled, 
flat-rolled, alloy steel products, whether or not in coils, 
regardless of width, having an actual thickness of 0.20 mm or more, 
in which the core loss is substantially equal in any direction of 
magnetization in the plane of the material. The term `substantially 
equal' means that the cross grain direction of core loss is no more 
than 1.5 times the straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling 
direction) of core loss. NOES has a magnetic permeability that does 
not exceed 1.65 Tesla when tested at a field of 800 A/m (equivalent 
to 10 Oersteds) along (i.e., parallel to) the rolling direction of 
the sheet (i.e., B800 value). NOES contains by weight more than 1.00 
percent of silicon but less than 3.5 percent of silicon, not more 
than 0.08 percent of carbon, and not more than 1.5 percent of 
aluminum. NOES has a surface oxide coating, to which an insulation 
coating may be applied.''
