We received a timely reply to Stanley’s comments from Mid Continent Steel & Wire, Inc. (the petitioner) on March 27, 2017, and a request that the Department correct an additional ministerial error. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65, 7317.00.75, and 7907.00.6000.2 The HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes only.

Amended Final Results

    Section 751(h) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), 
defines ``ministerial error'' as including ``errors in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type 
of unintentional error which the administering authority considers 
ministerial.'' \4\ After analyzing all parties' comments, we have 
determined in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(f), that certain ministerial errors were made in the Final 
Results. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well 
as the Department's analysis of these errors, see Ministerial Error 
Memorandum.

this review pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.212(b).
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\6\ Where the 
Department calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the 
total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total 
sales quantity associated with those transactions, the Department will 
direct CBP to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the 
resulting per-unit rates.\7\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific 
ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 0.50 
percent), the Department will

[[Page 19219]]

instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of 
liquidation.\8\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem 
or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\9\ We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries containing 
subject merchandise exported by the PRC-wide entity at the PRC-wide 
rate.

    Pursuant to the Department's assessment practice, for entries that 
were not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies 
individually examined during this review, the Department will instruct 
CBP to liquidate such entries at the PRC-wide entity rate. 
Additionally, if the Department determines that an exporter had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise, any suspended entries that 
entered under that exporter's case number (i.e., at that exporter's 
rate) will be liquidated at the PRC-wide entity rate.\10\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 
retroactively on any entries made on or after March 20, 2017, the date 
of publication of the Final Results, for all shipments of the subject 
merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or 
after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of 
the Act: (1) For the exporters listed above, the cash deposit rate will 
be the rate established in the ``Amended Final Results'' section 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, a zero cash deposit rate 
will be required for that company); (2) for previously investigated or 
reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that have separate 
rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the exporter-specific 
rate published for the most recent period. (3) for all PRC exporters of 
subject merchandise which have not been found to be entitled to a 
separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-Wide rate of 
118.04 percent; and (4) for all non-PRC exporters of subject 
merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporters that supplied 
that non-PRC exporter. The deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the 
relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    These amended final results and notice are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(e).

    Dated: April 19, 2017.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
