The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes From the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested parties, we have made certain changes for SeAH since the Preliminary Results. For home market sales that SeAH identified as consignment sales, in accordance with the Department’s practice, we have used the date the customer withdrew the merchandise from consignment inventory as the appropriate date of sale. For all remaining sales we continue to follow our practice as described in the Preliminary Results. Additionally, we have recalculated inventory carrying costs for direct shipment CEP sales based on the inventory period from PO 00000 Frm 00023 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39909 factory production to shipment to the U.S. customer.8 Final Results of the Review As a result of this review, we determine that the following weightedaverage dumping margins exist for the period November 1, 2013 through October 31, 2014: Producer/Exporter Husteel Co., Ltd .......................... Hyundai HYSCO ......................... SeAH Steel Corporation ............. Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) 1.42 1.62 0.00 Disclosure We will disclose the calculations used in our analysis to parties to these proceedings within five days of the date of publication of this notice pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 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 assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. For assessment purposes, Husteel, HYSCO, and SeAH reported the name of the importer of record and the entered value for all of their sales to the United States during the period of review (POR). Accordingly, for each respondent, we calculated importerspecific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importerspecific assessment rate is zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Husteel, HYSCO, and SeAH which they did not know were destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate 8 For a discussion of these changes, see the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 7 and SeAH’s Final Determination Calculation Memorandum dated concurrently with this Federal Register notice.

Changes From the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received from interested 
parties, we have made certain changes for SeAH since the Preliminary 
Results. For home market sales that SeAH identified as consignment 
sales, in accordance with the Department's practice, we have used the 
date the customer withdrew the merchandise from consignment inventory 
as the appropriate date of sale. For all remaining sales we continue to 
follow our practice as described in the Preliminary Results. 
Additionally, we have recalculated inventory carrying costs for direct 
shipment CEP sales based on the inventory period from factory 
production to shipment to the U.S. customer.\8\

Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 7 and SeAH's Final 
Determination Calculation Memorandum dated concurrently with this 
Federal Register notice.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations used in our analysis to parties 
to these proceedings within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) and (C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), 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 assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these 
final results of review.
    For assessment purposes, Husteel, HYSCO, and SeAH reported the name 
of the importer of record and the entered value for all of their sales 
to the United States during the period of review (POR). Accordingly, 
for each respondent, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem 
antidumping duty assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales 
and the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific assessment rate is zero 
or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent), we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Husteel, HYSCO, and SeAH which they did not know were destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate

[[Page 39910]]

unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the 
intermediate company or companies involved in the transaction. For a 
full discussion of this clarification, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 
FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of subject merchandise entered or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption, on or after the date of publication, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for Husteel, HYSCO, and SeAH will be equal to the respective weighted-
average dumping margins established in the final results of this 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not 
covered in this 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 in which that manufacturer or exporter participated; (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 subject merchandise; 
and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters 
will continue to be 4.80 percent, the ``all others'' rate established 
pursuant to a court decision.\9\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    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 duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. 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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the disposition 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 the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These final results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.

    Dated: June 10, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
