Stainless Steel Plate in Coils From Belgium, South Africa, and 
Taiwan: Continuation of Antidumping Duty Orders and Countervailing Duty 
Order

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

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (Department) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that 
revocation of the antidumping duty (AD) orders on stainless steel plate 
in coils (SSPC) from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan, and the 
countervailing duty (CVD) order on SSPC from South Africa, would likely 
lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping and countervailable 
subsidies and material injury to an industry in the United States, the 
Department is publishing a notice of continuation of the AD orders and 
the CVD order.

DATES: Effective January 9, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On July 1, 2016, the Department published the notice of initiation 
of the third sunset reviews of the AD orders on SSPC from Belgium, 
South Africa, and Taiwan, and the CVD order on SSPC from South Africa, 
pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act).\1\ As a result of the reviews, the Department determined that 
revocation of the AD orders would likely lead to a continuation or 
recurrence of dumping, and that revocation of the CVD order would 
likely lead to continuation or recurrence of countervailable 
subsidies.\2\ The Department, therefore, notified the ITC of the 
magnitude of the dumping margins and net countervailable subsidy rates 
likely to prevail should the AD orders and the CVD order be revoked. On 
January 3, 2016, the ITC published notice of its determination, 
pursuant to sections 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of 
the AD orders on SSPC from Belgium, South Africa, and Taiwan, and the 
CVD order on SSPC from South Africa, would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States within a reasonably foreseeable time.\3\
