As a result, the weighted-average dumping margins changed for HYSCO, NEXTEEL, and all other Korean exporters and producers. In the Final Redetermination, the Department also explained the basis for exercising its discretion to select mandatory respondents using the largest volume method, including the requisite analysis of record evidence, and therefore why it was appropriate not to select ILJIN as a mandatory respondent in the underlying investigation.3 On August 2, 2016, the CIT upheld the Department’s Final Redetermination in full.4 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,5 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,6 the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has 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 not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Department determination, and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s August 2, 2016 judgment sustaining the Final Redetermination constitutes a final decision of that court which is not in harmony with the Department’s Final Determination. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Amended Final Determination Because there is now a final court decision, the Department is amending the Final Determination with respect to the weighted-average dumping margins for NEXTEEL, HYSCO, and all other Korean exporters and producers for the period July 1, 2012 through June 30, 2013, effective August 12, 2016.
