SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 1, 2016, the Department initiated sunset reviews of the 
CVD orders on certain cut-to-length carbon-quality steel plate from 
India, Indonesia and Korea pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act).\1\ The Department received a notice of 
intent to participate in each of these reviews from the following 
domestic interested parties: Nucor Corporation, ArcelorMittal USA, and 
SSAB Enterprises LLC (collectively, domestic interested parties) within 
the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). The domestic 
interested parties claimed interested party status under section 
771(9)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews 81 FR 86697,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department received adequate substantive responses collectively 
from the domestic interested parties within the 30-day deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). However, the Department did not 
receive a substantive response from any government or respondent 
interested party to these proceedings. As a result, pursuant to section 
751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), the 
Department conducted expedited reviews of these CVD orders.

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by the countervailing duty orders are certain 
hot-rolled carbon-quality steel: (1) Universal mill plates (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 nominal or 
actual thickness of not less than 4 mm, which are cut-to-length (not in 
coils) and without patterns in relief), of iron or non-alloy-quality 
steel; and (2) flat-rolled products, hot-rolled, of a nominal or actual 
thickness of 4.75 mm or more and of a width which exceeds 150 mm and 
measures at least twice the thickness, and which are cut-to-length (not 
in coils).
    Steel products to be included in the scope are of rectangular, 
square, circular or other shape and of rectangular or non-rectangular 
cross-section where such non-rectangular cross-section is achieved 
subsequent to the rolling process (i.e., products which have been 
``worked after rolling'')--for example, products which have been 
beveled or rounded at the edges. Steel products that meet the noted 
physical characteristics that are painted, varnished or coated with 
plastic or other non-metallic substances are included within the scope. 
Also, specifically included in the scope are high strength, low alloy 
(HSLA) steels. HSLA steels are recognized as steels with micro-alloying 
levels of elements such as chromium, copper, niobium, titanium, 
vanadium, and molybdenum.
    Steel products to be included in the scope, 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 two percent or 
less, by weight, and (3) none of the elements listed below is equal to 
or 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 0.10 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 zirconium. All products that meet the 
written physical description, and in which the chemistry quantities do 
not equal or exceed any one of the levels listed above, are within the 
scope unless otherwise specifically excluded. The following products 
are specifically excluded from the orders: (1) Products clad, plated, 
or coated with metal, whether or not painted, varnished or coated with 
plastic or other non-metallic substances; (2) SAE grades (formerly AISI 
grades) of series 2300 and above; (3) products made to ASTM A710 and 
A736 or their proprietary equivalents; (4) abrasion-resistant steels 
(i.e., USS AR 400, USS AR 500); (5) products made to ASTM A202, A225, 
A514 grade S, A517 grade S, or their proprietary equivalents; (6) ball 
bearing steels; (7) tool steels; and (8) silicon manganese steel or 
silicon electric steel. The merchandise subject to the orders is 
currently classifiable in the HTSUS under subheadings: 7208.40.3030, 
7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000,
