Except as specified above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., cut length rolled products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and sections. The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On September 6, 2016, Sidenor informed the Department that, 
effective May 20, 2016, the following occurred: (1) Gerdau S.A., the 
Brazilian owner of Gerdau Holdings Europa S.A.U., including its Spanish 
subsidiary company Gerdau, sold its European holdings to Clerbil S.L.; 
and (2) Clerbil S.L. renamed Gerdau Holdings Europa S.A.U. to be 
Sidenor Holdings Europa S.A.U.; and Gerdau, to be Sidenor, while 
leaving its operations mostly unchanged.\1\ Citing section 751(b) of 
the of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (``the Act'') and 19 CFR 
351.216, Sidenor requested that the Department initiate a changed 
circumstances review and determine that Sidenor is the successor-in-
interest to Gerdau. On October 26, 2016, the Department initiated this 
changed circumstances review and published the notice of preliminary 
results, determining that Sidenor is the successor-in-interest to

Preliminary Results of Changed Circumstances Review, 81 FR 74401 
(October 26, 2016) (Preliminary Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. The term SSB with 
respect to the order means articles of stainless steel in straight 
lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-drawn, 
cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of circles, 
segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including squares), triangles, 
hexagons, octagons or other convex polygons. SSB includes cold-finished 
SSBs that are turned or ground in straight lengths, whether produced 
from hot-rolled bar or from straightened and cut rod or wire, and 
reinforcing bars that have indentations, ribs, grooves, or other 
deformations produced during the rolling process. Except as specified 
above, the term does not include stainless steel semi-finished 
products, cut length flat-rolled products (i.e., cut length rolled 
products which if less than 4.75 mm in thickness have a width measuring 
at least 10 times the thickness, or if 4.75 mm or more in thickness 
having a width which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the 
thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in coils, of any uniform 
solid cross section along their whole length, which do not conform to 
the definition of flat-rolled products), and angles, shapes and 
sections. The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS''). 
Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, our written description of the scope of this investigation is 
dispositive.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ The HTSUS numbers provided in the scope have changed since 
the publication of the order. See Amended Final Determination and 
Antidumping Duty Order: Stainless Steel Bar From Spain, 60 FR 11656 
(March 2, 1995).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review

    Because no party submitted a case brief in response to the 
Department's Preliminary Results, and because the record contains no 
other information or evidence that calls into question the Preliminary 
Results, the Department

[[Page 87022]]

continues to find that Sidenor is the successor-in-interest to Gerdau, 
and is entitled to Gerdau's cash deposit rate with respect to entries 
of merchandise subject to the AD order on SSB from Spain.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ For a complete discussion of the Department's findings, 
which remain unchanged in these final results and which are herein 
incorporated by reference and adopted by this notice, see generally 
Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection

    Based on these final results, we will instruct U.S. Customs and 
Border Protection to collect estimated antidumping duties for all 
shipments of subject merchandise exported by Sidenor and entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication 
of this notice in the Federal Register at the current AD cash deposit 
rate for Gerdau (i.e., 0 percent). This case deposit requirement shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Interested Parties

    This notice serves as a final 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). Timely written 
notification of the return/destruction of APO materials or conversion 
to judicial protective order is hereby requested. Failure to comply
