On March 16, 2017, the CIT sustained the Department’s Final Redetermination.9 Parties had 60 days to appeal the CIT’s judgement. No party appealed the decision. In response to the CIT’s March 16, 2017, decision, the Department published a notice of court decision that is not in harmony with a Department determination, and amended its Final Determination with respect to GVN and Jindal SAW.10 The revised weightedaverage dumping margin for GVN is 1.07 percent. The revised weightedaverage dumping margin for Jindal SAW is 11.24 percent. Neither GVN or Jindal SAW have a superseding cash deposit rate (e.g. from an administrative review) Less Than Fair Value, 79 FR 53691 (September 10, 2014) (Orders). 4 See Certain Oil Country Tubular Goods from India, the Republic of Korea, Taiwan, the Republic of Turkey, and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam: Notice of Correction to the Antidumping Duty Orders With Respect to Turkey and the Socialist Republic of Vietnam, 79 FR 59740 (October 3, 2014). 5 See United States Steel Corp. v.

Resellers of merchandise produced by GVN, are also not entitled to this exclusion.

However, because the estimated weighted-average dumping margin for merchandise produced and exported by GVN’s is de minimis, the Department is directing U.S. Customs and Border Protection to liquidate all entries produced and exported by GVN currently suspended without regard to antidumping duties, and to not to suspend liquidation of entries of subject 11 See Message No. 7130310, dated May 10, 2017 (Message No. 7130310). 12 See Orders. 13 Cash deposit rates are lower than estimated weighted-average dumping margins due to offsets for export subsidies. 14 See Orders at 53692; see also Message No. 4262301, dated September 19, 2017, and Message No. 7130310.

Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is certain lined paper products. The products are currently classifiable under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) item numbers: 4811.90.9035, 4811.90.9080, 4820.30.0040, 4810.22.5044, 4811.90.9050, 4811.90.9090, 4820.10.2010, 4820.10.2020, 4820.10.2030, 4820.10.2040, 4820.10.2050, 4820.10.2060, and 4820.10.4000.

A full description of the scope of the order is contained in the Final Results IDM.4 Ministerial Errors Section 751(h) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.224(f) define a ‘‘ministerial error’’ as an error ‘‘in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical error resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any similar type of unintentional error which the Secretary considers ministerial.’’ The Department finds that the purported errors alleged by the petitioner constitute ministerial errors within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224(f).5 Specifically, we committed certain ministerial errors with regard to the ‘‘0.5 Percent Test,’’ as described under 19 CFR 351.524(b)(2), and the benefit calculation performed in connection with import duty exemptions that Goldenpalm received under the Export Promotion of Capital Goods Scheme. For a complete discussion of these alleged errors, see the Response to Ministerial Error Allegations. In accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(e), we are amending the Final Results.6 Specifically, we are amending the net subsidy rate for Goldenpalm.
