AGENCY: Effective September 8, 2016. As a result of this sunset review, the Department of Commerce (the Department) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order on certain hot-rolled flat-rolled carbonquality steel products (hot-rolled steel) from the Russian Federation (Russia) would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the rates identified in the ‘‘Final Results of Review’’ section of this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: DATES: SUMMARY: Background The Department published the antidumping duty order on hot-rolled steel from Russia on December 24, 2014.1 On May 2, 2016, the Department initiated a sunset review of the Russia Order in accordance with section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 On May 16, 2016, and May 17, 2016, the Department received notices of intent to participate from United States Steel Corporation, SSAB Enterprises LLC, Steel Dynamics, Inc., ArcelorMittal USA, LLC, AK Steel Corporation, and Nucor Corporation (collectively, domestic interested parties), within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). Domestic interested parties are manufacturers of a domestic like product in the United States and, accordingly, are domestic interested parties pursuant to section 771(9)(C) of the Act. On June 1, 2016, the Department received an adequate substantive response to the notice of initiation from domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The Department did not receive any responses from the respondent interested parties, i.e., hotrolled steel producers and exporters from Russia. On the basis of the notices of intent to participate and adequate substantive responses filed by the domestic interested parties and no response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted an expedited sunset review of the Russia Order pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C). Scope of the Order For the purposes of this order, ‘‘hotrolled steel’’ means certain hot-rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products of a rectangular shape, of a width of 0.5 inch or greater, neither clad, plated, nor coated with metal and whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-metallic substances, in coils (whether or not in successively superimposed layers) regardless of thickness, and in straight lengths, of a thickness less than 4.75 mm and of a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness. Universal mill plate (i.e., flat-rolled products rolled on four faces or in a closed box pass, of a width exceeding 150 mm but not exceeding 1250 mm and of a thickness of not less than 4 mm, not in coils and without patterns in relief) of a thickness not less than 4.0 mm is not included within the scope of this order. Specifically included in this scope are vacuum degassed, fully stabilized (commonly referred to as interstitial-free (IF)) steels, high strength low alloy (HSLA) steels, and the substrate for motor lamination steels. 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. The substrate for motor lamination steels contains micro-alloying levels of elements such as silicon and aluminum. Steel products to be included in the scope of this order, regardless of Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) definitions, 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: 1.80 percent of manganese, or 1.50 percent of silicon, or 1.00 percent of copper, or 0.50 percent of aluminum, or 1.25 percent of chromium, or 0.30 percent of cobalt, or 0.40 percent of lead, or 1.25 percent of nickel, or 0.30 percent of tungsten, or 0.012 percent of boron, or 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or 0.10 percent of niobium, or 0.41 percent of titanium, or 0.15 percent of vanadium, or 0.15 percent of zirconium.

In the event the Department decides it is necessary to limit individual examination of respondents and conduct respondent selection under section 777A(c)(2) of the Act: In general, the Department finds that determinations concerning whether particular companies should be ‘‘collapsed’’ (i.e., treated as a single entity for purposes of calculating antidumping duty rates) require a substantial amount of detailed information and analysis, which often require follow-up questions and analysis. Accordingly, the Department will not conduct collapsing analyses at the respondent selection phase of this review and will not collapse companies at the respondent selection phase unless PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 there has been a determination to collapse certain companies in a previous segment of this antidumping proceeding (i.e., investigation, administrative review, new shipper review or changed circumstances review).

Otherwise, the Department will not collapse companies for purposes of respondent selection. Parties are requested to (a) identify which companies subject to review previously were collapsed, and (b) provide a citation to the proceeding in which they were collapsed. Further, if companies are requested to complete the Quantity and Value Questionnaire for purposes of respondent selection, in general each company must report volume and value data separately for itself. Parties should not include data for any other party, even if they believe they should be treated as a single entity with that other party. If a company was collapsed with another company or companies in the most recently completed segment of this proceeding where the Department considered collapsing that entity, complete quantity and value data for that collapsed entity must be submitted.

The regulation provides that the Department may extend this time if it is reasonable to do so. In order to provide parties additional certainty with respect to when the Department will exercise its discretion to extend this 90-day deadline, interested parties are advised that, with regard to reviews requested on the basis of anniversary months on or after September 2016, the Department does not intend to extend the 90-day deadline unless the requestor demonstrates that an extraordinary circumstance prevented it from submitting a timely withdrawal request.

Certain Hot-Rolled Flat-Rolled Carbon-Quality Steel Products From 
the Russian Federation: Final Results of the Expedited Sunset Review of 
the Antidumping Duty Order

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.


DATES: Effective September 8, 2016.

SUMMARY: As a result of this sunset review, the Department of Commerce 
(the Department) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty order on 
certain hot-rolled flat-rolled carbon-quality steel products (hot-
rolled steel) from the Russian Federation (Russia) would be likely to 
lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping at the rates identified 
in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.

    On June 1, 2016, the Department received an adequate substantive 
response to the notice of initiation from domestic interested parties 
within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The 
Department did not receive any responses from the respondent interested 
parties, i.e., hot-rolled steel producers and exporters from Russia. On 
the basis of the notices of intent to participate and adequate 
substantive responses filed by the domestic interested parties and no 
response from any respondent interested party, the Department conducted 
an expedited sunset review of the Russia Order pursuant to section 
751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C).

Scope of the Order

    For the purposes of this order, ``hot-rolled steel'' means certain
