Specifically, the CIT affirmed the Department’s reliance on Thai data to value stainless steel inputs and revised calculation of selling, general, administrative (‘‘SG&A’’) expenses on redetermination. Accordingly, the Department is hereby notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with the final affirmative determination in the underlying AD investigation and, as there is a now a final and conclusive AGENCY: decision in this case, is amending the final determination with respect to the dumping margins determined for Guangdong Dongyuan Kitchenware Industrial Company, Ltd. (‘‘Dongyuan’’), Foshan Zhaoshun Trade Co., Ltd. and Zhongshan Superte Kitchenware Co., Ltd. (collectively, ‘‘Superte’’), as well as all other companies that received a separate rate.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eve Wang, Office III, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–6231. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Subsequent to the publication of the Final Determination 1 in the underlying AD investigation of sinks from the PRC, Dongyuan (a respondent in the underlying investigation) and Elkay Manufacturing Company (the petitioner in the underlying investigation) filed complaints with the CIT challenging aspects of the methodology used to determine the dumping margins in the Final Determination. On December 22, 2014, the CIT granted the Department’s partial voluntary remand request to reconsider the use of Global Trade Atlas (‘‘GTA’’) import data for Thailand to value coldrolled stainless steel coil, and also directed the Department to reconsider its methodology of accounting for SG&A expenses in the normal value calculations.2 Pursuant to the CIT’s instructions on remand, the Department further evaluated the information on the record regarding the valuation of cold-rolled stainless steel coil inputs and determined to continue to use the GTA import data for Thailand to value these inputs.3 Furthermore, in compliance with the remand directive, the Department classified SG&A labor items as SG&A expenses in each company’s surrogate financial ratio calculation, resulting in a change to the margins calculated for each respondent.4 On July 14, 2016, the CIT affirmed the remand redetermination.5 Timken Notice In Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337, 341 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (‘‘Timken’’), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (‘‘Diamond Sawblades’’), the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (‘‘CAFC’’) held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (‘‘the Act’’), the Department must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s July 14, 2016, judgment in this case constitutes a final court decision that is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Determination.
