Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for shipments of the subject merchandise from the PRC entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters identified above, the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters not listed above that received a separate rate in a previously completed segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporterspecific rate published for the most recent period; (3) for all PRC exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be that for the PRC-wide entity (i.e., 60.85 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 exporter that supplied that nonPRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final results within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties has occurred and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

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.

SUMMARY: On March 1, 2017, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the preliminary results of the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar (SSB) from Brazil. The period of review (POR) is February 1, 2015, through January 31, 2016. The review covers one producer/exporter of the subject merchandise, Villares Metals S.A. (Villares). For the final results of this review, we continue to find that subject merchandise has not been sold at less than normal value. DATES: Effective June 16, 2017.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: Background On March 1, 2017, the Department published the Preliminary Results of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:12 Jun 15, 2017 Jkt 241001 administrative review in which it determined that subject merchandise has not been sold at less than fair value.1 The Department stated its intent to issue a supplemental questionnaire after the Preliminary Results in light of pre-preliminary comments from Carpenter Technology Corporation, Crucible Industries LLC, Electralloy, a Division of G.O. Carlson, Inc., North America Stainless, and Valbruna Slater Stainless, Inc. (collectively, the petitioners).2 On March 10, 2017, the Department issued a supplemental questionnaire to Villares regarding its reporting of certain expense and revenue items,3 and received a response on April 3, 2017.4 No party commented on Villares’ April 3, 2017, supplemental questionnaire response. The Department also gave interested parties an opportunity to comment on the Preliminary Results, but received no comments. The Department conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 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 coldfinished 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., cutlength 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 1 See Stainless Steel Bar from Brazil: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2015–2016, 82 FR 12197 (March 1, 2017) (Preliminary Results) and Decision Memorandum for Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review: Stainless Steel Bar from Brazil, dated February 23, 2017 (Preliminary Decision Memorandum). 2 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 2. 3 See the Department’s supplemental questionnaire, dated March 10. 2017. 4 See Villares’ supplemental questionnaire response, dated April 3, 2017.

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 subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Results After consideration of Villares’ April 3, 2017, supplemental questionnaire response, the Department made minor changes to its calculations announced in the Preliminary Results.5 Specifically, for the final results of this administrative review, we used Villares’ revised sales databases that it submitted to the Department in response to a March 10, 2017, supplemental questionnaire, which we issued after the Preliminary Results.6 In addition, in our March 10, 2017, supplemental questionnaire, we requested that Villares ensure and confirm that it reported gross unit prices net of any expenses and that any expenses (freight, insurance, merchandise processing fee, harbor maintenance fees, entry fee, etc.) were properly reported in their corresponding expense field.7 Villares provided the Department a U.S. sales database in Excel format with the appropriate expense fields. We reviewed the information provided by Villares and determined that the freight amounts reported constituted as freight revenue and therefore, consistent with the Department’s practice, it is appropriate to treat freight revenue as offsets to certain expenses.8 Accordingly, for the final results, we capped Villares’ freight 5 For further details, see Memorandum to the File, ‘‘Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Stainless Steel Bar from Brazil: Final Analysis Memorandum for Villares Metals S.A.; 2015–2016,’’ dated concurrently with this notice (Final Analysis Memorandum). 6 See the Department’s supplemental questionnaire dated March 10, 2017. 7 See the Department’s March 10, 2017, third supplemental questionnaire at page 5. 8 See Certain Orange Juice from Brazil: Final Results and Partial Rescission of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 73 FR 46584 (August 11, 2008), and the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (I&D Memo) at Comment 7, and Polyethylene Retail Carrier Bags from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 74 FR 6857 (February 11, 2009), and the accompanying I&D Memo at Comment 6.
