VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:42 Aug 04, 2016 Jkt 238001 Background On April 13, 2016, the Department published its Preliminary Results of the review of the antidumping duty order on steel grating from the PRC for Ningbo Haitian International Co., Ltd. (‘‘Ningbo Haitian’’) and Yantai Xinke Steel Structure Co., Ltd. (‘‘Yantai Xinke’’) covering the period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015 (the period of review (‘‘POR’’)). No parties commented on the Preliminary Results. Scope of the Order The products covered by this order 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 profile of the bars; and (5) whether or not they are galvanized, painted, coated, clad or plated. Steel grating is also commonly referred to as ‘‘bar grating,’’ although the components may consist of steel other than bars, such as hot-rolled sheet, plate, or wire rod. The scope of this order excludes expanded metal grating, which is comprised of a single piece or coil of sheet or thin plate steel that has been slit and expanded, and does not involve welding or joining of multiple pieces of steel. The scope of this order also excludes plank type safety grating which is comprised of a single piece or coil of sheet or thin plate steel, typically in thickness of 10 to 18 gauge, that has been pierced and cold formed, and does not involve welding or joining of multiple pieces of steel. Certain steel grating that is the subject of this order is currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) under subheading 7308.90.7000. While the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this order is dispositive. Analysis In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Ningbo Haitian was not eligible for separate rate status and was therefore part of the PRCwide entity and that Yantai Xinke did not have reviewable transactions during the POR.2 No parties commented on the Preliminary Results. Therefore, for these final results of review, we have continued to treat Ningbo Haitian as part of the PRC-wide entity and continued to find that Yantai Xinke did not have reviewable transactions during 2 See PO 00000 Preliminary Results, at 21845.

The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. The Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate any entries of subject merchandise from Ningbo Haitian at 145.18 percent (the PRC-wide rate). Additionally, pursuant to the Department’s practice in non-market economy cases, given that we have continued to find that Yantai Xinke had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, any suspended entries of subject merchandise from Yantai Xinke will be liquidated at the PRCwide rate.4 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 of the final results of review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters, which are not under review in this 3 See Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review of Certain Steel Grating from the People’s Republic of China (‘‘Preliminary Decision Memorandum’’), from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations to Ronald K.

Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and 
Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-
6412.

Background

    On April 13, 2016, the Department published its Preliminary Results 
of the review of the antidumping duty order on steel grating from the 
PRC for Ningbo Haitian International Co., Ltd. (``Ningbo Haitian'') and 
Yantai Xinke Steel Structure Co., Ltd. (``Yantai Xinke'') covering the 
period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015 (the period of review 
(``POR'')). No parties commented on the Preliminary Results.

Scope of the Order

    The products covered by this order 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 profile of the bars; and (5) whether or 
not they are galvanized, painted, coated, clad or plated. Steel grating 
is also commonly referred to as ``bar grating,'' although the 
components may consist of steel other than bars, such as hot-rolled 
sheet, plate, or wire rod.
    The scope of this order excludes expanded metal grating, which is 
comprised of a single piece or coil of sheet or thin plate steel that 
has been slit and expanded, and does not involve welding or joining of 
multiple pieces of steel. The scope of this order also excludes plank 
type safety grating which is comprised of a single piece or coil of 
sheet or thin plate steel, typically in thickness of 10 to 18 gauge, 
that has been pierced and cold formed, and does not involve welding or 
joining of multiple pieces of steel.
    Certain steel grating that is the subject of this order is 
currently classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United 
States (``HTSUS'') under subheading 7308.90.7000. While the HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the scope of this order is dispositive.

Analysis

    In the Preliminary Results, the Department determined that Ningbo 
Haitian was not eligible for separate rate status and was therefore 
part of the PRC-wide entity and that Yantai Xinke did not have 
reviewable transactions during the POR.\2\ No parties commented on the 
Preliminary Results. Therefore, for these final results of review, we 
have continued to treat Ningbo Haitian as part of the PRC-wide entity 
and continued to find that Yantai Xinke did not have reviewable 
transactions during the POR. We are adopting the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum for these final results of review.\3\ The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Centralized Electronic Service System (``ACCESS''). ACCESS is available 
to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and in the Central 
Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. 
In addition, a complete version of the Preliminary Results Decision 
Memorandum can be accessed directly on the Internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed and the electronic 
versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in 
content.

Memorandum''), from Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations to Ronald K. 
Lorentzen, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, 
and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. 
The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days 
after the publication date of the final results of this review. The 
Department intends to instruct CBP to liquidate any entries of subject 
merchandise from Ningbo Haitian at 145.18 percent (the PRC-wide rate).
    Additionally, pursuant to the Department's practice in non-market 
economy cases, given that we have continued to find that Yantai Xinke 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, any suspended 
entries of subject merchandise from Yantai Xinke will be liquidated at 
the PRC-wide rate.\4\

Assessment, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).

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 of the 
final results of review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC 
exporters, which are not under review in this

[[Page 51862]]

segment of the proceeding, but which have separate rates, the cash 
deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific rate published 
for the most recent period; (2) for all PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, 
including Ningbo Haitian, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide 
rate of 145.18 percent; and (3) 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 exporter(s) that supplied 
that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification of Interested Parties

    This notice also 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (``APOs'') of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305, 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 that is subject to sanction.
    This notice of the final results of this antidumping duty 
administrative review is issued and published in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213 and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(5).
