These changes are discussed in Section V of the Issues and Decision Memorandum. All-Others Rate In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B)(i)(I) of the Act, the Department calculated a dumping margin for the individually investigated exporters/producers of the subject merchandise. Consistent with sections 735(c)(1)(B)(i)(II) and 735(c)(5) of the Act, the Department also calculated an estimated ‘‘all-others’’ rate for exporters and producers not individually investigated. Section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the ‘‘all-others’’ rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for individually investigated exporters and producers, excluding any margins that are zero or de minimis or any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. Because the estimated weightedaverage dumping margin calculated for Lo-Toun is based entirely on facts available under section 776 of the Act, we have not utilized Lo-Toun’s rate in order to calculate the all-others rate. Pursuant to section 735(c)(5), we utilized the remaining rate, which is neither zero or de minimis or based entirely on facts available, in order to calculate the all-others rate.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 7, 2017, the Department published the Preliminary 
Determination of this antidumping duty (AD) investigation.\1\ The 
petitioners in this investigation are the Rebar Trade Action Coalition 
and its individual members.\2\ The mandatory respondents in this 
investigation are Power Steel Co., Ltd. (Power Steel) and Lo-Toun Steel 
and Iron Works Co., Ltd. (Lo-Toun). Following the Preliminary 
Determination, Lo-Toun withdrew its participation as a mandatory 
respondent. A complete summary of the events that occurred since 
publication of the Preliminary Determination, as well as a full 
discussion of the issues raised by parties for this final 
determination, may be found in the Final Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, which is dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this 
notice.\3\ The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and 
is available electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service 
System (ACCESS). Access is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and to all parties in the Central Records Unit, Room 
B-8024 of the Department's main building. In addition, a complete

Scope of the Investigation

    The scope of the investigation covers rebar from Taiwan. The 
Department did not receive any scope comments and has not updated the 
scope of the investigation since the Preliminary Determination. For a 
complete description of the scope of this investigation, see Appendix I 
to this notice.

Analysis of Comments Received

    The issues raised in the case briefs and rebuttal briefs submitted 
by interested parties in this investigation are discussed in the Issues 
and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues raised by parties and 
responded to by the Department in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is 
attached at Appendix II to this notice.

Verification

    As provided in section 782(i) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended 
(the Act), during April 2017, the Department verified the sales and 
cost data reported by Power Steel for use in our final determination. 
We used standard verification procedures, including an examination of 
relevant accounting and production records, and original source 
documents provided by the respondent.

[[Page 34926]]

Use of Adverse Facts Available

    In making this final determination, the Department relied, in part, 
on facts available. As discussed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum,\4\ we determine that Lo-Toun, by withdrawing its 
participation in the investigation, significantly impeded the 
investigation, submitted information that could not be verified, and 
failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of its ability in 
responding to the Department's requests for information. Therefore, we 
drew an adverse inference in selecting from among the facts otherwise 
available.\5\ For further information, see the ``Use of Facts Otherwise 
Available and Adverse Inferences'' in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 4.
    \5\ See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Changes Since the Preliminary Determination

    Based on our analysis of the comments received and our findings at 
verification, we made certain changes to the margin calculations since 
the Preliminary Determination. These changes are discussed in Section V 
of the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

All-Others Rate

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B)(i)(I) of the Act, the 
Department calculated a dumping margin for the individually 
investigated exporters/producers of the subject merchandise. Consistent 
with sections 735(c)(1)(B)(i)(II) and 735(c)(5) of the Act, the 
Department also calculated an estimated ``all-others'' rate for 
exporters and producers not individually investigated. Section 
735(c)(5)(A) of the Act provides that the ``all-others'' rate shall be 
an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-
average dumping margins established for individually investigated 
exporters and producers, excluding any margins that are zero or de 
minimis or any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the 
Act.
    Because the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated 
for Lo-Toun is based entirely on facts available under section 776 of 
the Act, we have not utilized Lo-Toun's rate in order to calculate the 
all-others rate. Pursuant to section 735(c)(5), we utilized the 
remaining rate, which is neither zero or de minimis or based entirely 
on facts available, in order to calculate the all-others rate.

Final Determination

    Pursuant to section 735 of the Act, the Department determines the 
estimated weighted-average dumping margins to be:

Disclosure

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b), we will disclose the 
calculations performed within five days of any public announcement of 
this notice.

Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation

    In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, the Department 
will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to continue to 
suspend liquidation of all appropriate entries of rebar from Taiwan, as 
described in Appendix I of this notice, which were entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 7, 2017, 
the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination. Furthermore, 
the Department will instruct CBP to require a cash deposit for such 
entries of merchandise.

International Trade Commission Notification

    In accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, we will notify the 
U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) of the final affirmative 
determination of sales at LTFV. Because the final determination in this 
proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the 
Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the 
domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or 
threatened with material injury, by reason of imports of rebar from 
Taiwan no later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC

Scope of the Investigation

    The merchandise subject to this investigation is steel concrete 
reinforcing bar imported in either straight length or coil form 
(rebar) regardless of metallurgy, length, diameter, or grade or lack 
thereof. Subject merchandise includes deformed steel wire with bar 
markings (e.g., mill mark, size, or grade) and which has been 
subjected to an elongation test.
    The subject merchandise includes rebar that has been further 
processed in the subject country or a third country, including but 
not limited to cutting, grinding, galvanizing, painting, coating, or 
any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise 
from the scope of the investigation if performed in the country of 
manufacture of the rebar.
    Specifically excluded are plain rounds (i.e., nondeformed or 
smooth rebar). Also excluded from the scope is deformed steel wire 
meeting ASTM A1064/A1064M with no bar markings (e.g., mill mark, 
size, or grade) and without being subject to an elongation test.
    The subject merchandise is classifiable in the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) primarily under item numbers 
7213.10.0000, 7214.20.0000, and 7228.30.8010. The subject 
merchandise may also enter under other HTSUS numbers including 
7215.90.1000, 7215.90.5000, 7221.00.0017, 7221.00.0018,
