Because the ITC determined that imports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the NV of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after November 14, 2016, the date of publication of the preliminary determinations,13 but will 12 See ITC Letter and ITC Report.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated antidumping duties equal to the amounts as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s affirmative injury determinations, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.14 The relevant ‘‘all-others’’ rates apply to all producers or exporters not specifically listed, as appropriate. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant proportion of exports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, we extended the four-month period to six months in each proceeding.15 In the underlying investigations, the Department published the preliminary determinations on November 14, 2016. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the date of publication of the preliminary determinations, ended on May 12, 2017.

Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s determination in the Federal Register. Critical Circumstances With regard to the ITC’s negative critical circumstances determination on imports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, and Italy, we will instruct CBP to lift suspension and to refund any cash deposits made to secure the payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect to entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after August 16, 2016 (i.e., 90 days prior to the date of publication of the Austria Prelim, Belgium Prelim, and Italy Prelim), but before November 14, 2016 (i.e., the date of publication of the Austria Prelim, Belgium Prelim, and Italy Prelim).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on April 4, 2017, 
the Department published its affirmative final determinations in the 
less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigations of CTL plate from Austria, 
Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan.\1\ On May 
18, 2017, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative 
determination, pursuant to section 735(d) of the Act, that an industry 
in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of 
section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, by reason of the LTFV imports of 
CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, 
and Taiwan, and its determination that critical circumstances do not 
exist with respect to imports of subject merchandise from Austria, 
Belgium, and Italy that are subject to the Department's affirmative 
critical circumstances findings.\2\

Scope of the Orders

    The merchandise covered by these orders is certain CTL plate. See 
Appendix A for Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Italy, Appendix B 
for Korea, Appendix C for Japan, and Appendix D for Taiwan.

Amendment to Final Determinations

    A ministerial error is defined as an error in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other 
similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers 
ministerial.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ See section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

France Amended Final Determination

    Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and 
(f), the Department is amending the France Final to reflect the 
correction of ministerial errors in the final estimated weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for Dillinger France S.A. (Dillinger 
France). In addition, because Dillinger France's estimated weighted-
average dumping margin is the basis for the estimated weighted-average 
dumping margin determined for all other French producers and exporters 
of subject merchandise, we also are revising the ``all-others'' rate in 
France Final.\4\ \5\

Germany Amended Final Determination

    Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and 
(f), the Department is amending the Germany Final to reflect the 
correction of a ministerial error in the final estimated weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for AG der Dillinger H[uuml]ttenwerke 
(Dillinger Germany). In addition, because the Department determined the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin for all other German 
producers and exporters of subject merchandise based on a weighted-
average of the respondents' estimated weighted-average dumping margins 
using publicly-ranged quantities for their sales of subject

Korea Amended Final Determination

    Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and 
(f), the Department is amending the Korea Final to reflect the 
correction of ministerial errors in the final estimated weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for POSCO. In addition, because 
POSCO's estimated weighted-average dumping margin is the basis for the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margin for all other Korean 
producers and exporters of subject merchandise, we also are revising

Taiwan Amended Final Determination

    Pursuant to section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e) and 
(f), the Department is amending the Taiwan Final to reflect the 
correction of a ministerial error in the final estimated weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for China Steel Corporation. In 
addition, because the Department determined the estimated weighted-
average dumping margin for all other Taiwanese producers and exporters 
of subject merchandise based on a simple average of the respondents' 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins, we also are revising the 
``all-others'' rate in Taiwan Final.10 11 In addition, in 
the Taiwan Final, we identified an error in the scope language for 
Taiwan included in the Appendix. See Appendix D, below, for the 
corrected scope language.

Antidumping Duty Orders

    As stated above, on May 18, 2017, in accordance with sections 
735(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified the Department 
of its determination that the industry in the United States producing 
CTL plate is materially injured with respect to CTL plate from Austria, 
Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan and its 
determination that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to 
imports of subject merchandise from Austria, Belgium, and Italy that 
are subject to the Department's affirmative critical circumstances 
finding \12\ Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the 
Act, we are issuing these antidumping duty orders. Because the ITC 
determined that imports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, 
Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan are materially injuring a U.S. 
industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from Austria, 
Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, entered or 
withdrawn from warehouse for consumption, are subject to the assessment 
of antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See ITC Letter and ITC Report.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the 
Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties 
equal to the amount by which the NV of the merchandise exceeds the 
export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all 
relevant entries of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, 
Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. Antidumping duties will be assessed on 
unliquidated entries of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, 
Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after November 14, 2016, the date of 
publication of the preliminary determinations,\13\ but will not include 
entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures 
period and before publication in the Federal Register of the ITC's 
injury determination as further described below.

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

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will 
instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on all relevant entries 
of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, 
Korea, and Taiwan. These instructions suspending liquidation will 
remain in effect until further notice.
    We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits for estimated 
antidumping duties equal to the amounts as indicated below. 
Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal 
Register of the ITC's affirmative injury determinations, CBP will 
require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated 
duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins listed below.\14\ The 
relevant ``all-others'' rates apply to all producers or exporters not 
specifically listed, as appropriate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See section 736(a)(3) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Provisional Measures

    Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions issued pursuant 
to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect 
for more than four months, except where exporters representing a 
significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise request 
the Department to extend that four-month period to no more than six 
months. At the request of exporters that account for a significant 
proportion of exports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, 
Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan, we extended the four-month 
period to six months in each proceeding.\15\ In the underlying 
investigations, the Department published the preliminary determinations 
on November 14, 2016. Therefore, the extended period, beginning on the 
date of publication of the preliminary determinations, ended on May 12, 
2017.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \15\ See Austria Prelim, Belgium Prelim, France Prelim, Germany 
Prelim, Italy Prelim, Japan Prelim, Korea Prelim, and Taiwan Prelim.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our 
practice, we

[[Page 24098]]

will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to 
liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries 
of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, 
Korea, and Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption 
after May 12, 2017, the date on which the provisional measures expired, 
until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the 
ITC's injury determinations in the Federal Register. Suspension of 
liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC's 
determination in the Federal Register.

Critical Circumstances

    With regard to the ITC's negative critical circumstances 
determination on imports of CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, and Italy, 
we will instruct CBP to lift suspension and to refund any cash deposits 
made to secure the payment of estimated antidumping duties with respect 
to entries of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after August 16, 2016 (i.e., 90 days prior to the 
date of publication of the Austria Prelim, Belgium Prelim, and Italy 
Prelim), but before November 14, 2016 (i.e., the date of publication of 
the Austria Prelim, Belgium Prelim, and Italy Prelim).

Notifications to Interested Parties

    This notice constitutes the antidumping duty orders with respect to 
CTL plate from Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, 
and Taiwan pursuant to section 736(a) of the Act. Interested parties 
can find a list of antidumping duty orders currently in effect at 
http://enforcement.trade.gov/stats/iastats1.html.
    These amended final determinations and orders are published in 
accordance with sections 735(e) and 736(a) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.210(c), 351.211(b), and 351.224(e) and (f).

    Dated: May 19, 2017.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

APPENDICES

(A) Scope of the Orders for CTL Plate From Austria, Belgium, France, 
Germany, and Italy

    The products covered by these orders are certain carbon and 
alloy steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, 
whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other 
non-metallic substances (cut-to-length plate). Subject merchandise 
includes plate that is produced by being cut-to-length from coils or 
from other discrete length plate and plate that is rolled or forged 
into a discrete length. The products covered include (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 thickness of not less than 4 mm, which are not in coils 
and without patterns in relief), and (2) hot-rolled or forged flat 
steel products of a 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 not in coils, whether or not with patterns in relief. The 
covered products described above may be rectangular, square, 
circular or other shapes and include products of either 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'' (e.g., products 
which have been beveled or rounded at the edges).
    For purposes of the width and thickness requirements referenced 
above, the following rules apply:
    (1) Except where otherwise stated where the nominal and actual 
thickness or width

[[Page 24099]]

measurements vary, a product from a given subject country is within 
the scope if application of either the nominal or actual measurement 
would place it within the scope based on the definitions set forth 
above, and
    (2) where the width and thickness vary for a specific product 
(e.g., the thickness of certain products with non-rectangular cross-
section, the width of certain products with non-rectangular shape, 
etc.), the measurement at its greatest width or thickness applies.
    Steel products included in the scope of this order are products 
in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other 
contained elements; and (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less 
by weight.
    Subject merchandise includes cut-to-length plate that has been 
further processed in the subject country or a third country, 
including but not limited to pickling, oiling, levelling, annealing, 
tempering, temper rolling, skin passing, painting, varnishing, 
trimming, cutting, punching, beveling, and/or slitting, or any other 
processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the 
scope of the order if performed in the country of manufacture of the 
cut-to-length plate.
    All products that meet the written physical description, are 
within the scope of this order unless specifically excluded or 
covered by the scope of an existing order. The following products 
are outside of, and/or specifically excluded from, the scope of this 
order:
    (1) Products clad, plated, or coated with metal, whether or not 
painted, varnished or coated with plastic or other non-metallic 
substances;
    (2) military grade armor plate certified to one of the following 
specifications or to a specification that references and 
incorporates one of the following specifications:

 MIL-A-12560,
 MIL-DTL-12560H,
 MIL-DTL-12560J,
 MIL-DTL-12560K,
 MIL-DTL-32332,
 MIL-A-46100D,
 MIL-DTL-46100-E,
 MIL-46177C,
 MIL-S-16216K Grade HY80,
 MIL-S-16216K Grade HY100,
 MIL-S-24645A HSLA-80;
 MIL-S-24645A HSLA-100,
 T9074-BD-GIB-010/0300 Grade HY80,
 T9074-BD-GIB-010/0300 Grade HY100,

 T9074-BD-GIB-010/0300 Grade HSLA100, and
 T9074-BD-GIB-010/0300 Mod. Grade HSLA115,

except that any cut-to-length plate certified to one of the above 
specifications, or to a military grade armor specification that 
references and incorporates one of the above specifications, will 
not be excluded from the scope if it is also dual- or multiple-
certified to any other non-armor specification that otherwise would 
fall within the scope of this order;
    (3) stainless steel plate, containing 10.5 percent or more of 
chromium by weight and not more than 1.2 percent of carbon by 
weight;
    (4) CTL plate meeting the requirements of ASTM A-829, Grade E 
4340 that are over 305 mm in actual thickness;

steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether 
or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-
metallic substances (cut-to-length plate). Subject merchandise 
includes plate that is produced by being cut-to-length from coils or 
from other discrete length plate and plate that is rolled or forged 
into a discrete length. The products covered include (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 thickness of not less than 4 mm, which are not in coils 
and without patterns in relief), and (2) hot-rolled or forged flat 
steel products of a thickness of 4.75 mm or more and of a width 
which exceeds 150 mm and measures at least twice the thickness, and

(D) Scope of the Order for CTL Plate From Taiwan

    The products covered by this order are certain carbon and alloy 
steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether 
or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other non-
metallic substances (cut-to-length plate). Subject merchandise 
includes plate that is produced by being cut-to-length from coils or 
from other discrete length plate and plate that is rolled or forged 
into a discrete length. The products covered include (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 thickness of not less than 4 mm, which are not in coils 
and without patterns in relief), and (2) hot-rolled or forged flat 
steel products of a 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 not in coils, whether or not with patterns in relief. The 
covered products described above may be rectangular, square, 
circular or other shapes and include products of either 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'' (e.g., products 
which have been beveled or rounded at the edges).
    For purposes of the width and thickness requirements referenced 
above, the following rules apply:
    (1) except where otherwise stated where the nominal and actual 
thickness or width measurements vary, a product from a given subject 
country is within the scope if application of either the nominal or 
actual measurement would place it within the scope based on the 
definitions set forth above unless the product is already covered by 
an order existing on that specific country (i.e. Notice of 
Antidumping Duty Order; Certain Hot-Rolled Carbon Steel Flat 
Products From Taiwan, 66 FR 59563 (November 29, 2001)); and
    (2) where the width and thickness vary for a specific product 
(e.g., the thickness of certain products with non-rectangular cross-
section, the width of certain products with non-rectangular shape, 
etc.), the measurement at its greatest width or thickness applies.
    Steel products included in the scope of this order are products 
in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other 
contained elements; and (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less 
by weight.
    Subject merchandise includes cut-to-length plate that has been 
further processed in the subject country or a third country, 
including but not limited to pickling, oiling, levelling, annealing, 
tempering, temper rolling, skin passing, painting, varnishing, 
trimming, cutting, punching, beveling, and/or slitting, or any other 
processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the 
scope of the order if performed in the country of manufacture of the 
cut-to-length plate.
    All products that meet the written physical description, are 
within the scope of this order unless specifically excluded or 
covered by the scope of an existing order. The following products 
are outside of, and/or specifically excluded from, the scope of this 
order:
    (1) Products clad, plated, or coated with metal, whether or not 
painted, varnished or coated with plastic or other non-metallic 
substances;
    (2) military grade armor plate certified to one of the following 
specifications or to a specification that references and 
incorporates one of the following specifications:
