Because of the CIT’s final decision, we are notifying the public that this court decision is not in harmony with the Department’s final determination in the LTFV investigation, and we are also amending our final determination, revoking this antidumping duty order, in part, and discontinuing the fifth administrative review.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background As noted above, on August 17, 2017, the CIT sustained the Department’s Third Remand Redetermination pertaining to the final determination in the less than fair value (LTFV) investigation of high pressure steel cylinders from the People’s Republic of China (PRC).1 In the underlying LTFV investigation, the Department found that, pursuant to section 777A(d)(1)(B) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (Act), ‘‘there was a pattern of prices that differ significantly by time period’’ for respondent Beijing Tianhai Industry Co., Ltd. (BTIC), and that ‘‘application of the standard A-to-A {(average-toaverage)} methodology would result in the masking of dumping that is unmasked by application of the alternative A-to-T {(average-totransaction)} methodology when calculating BTIC’s weighted-average dumping margin.’’ 2 In the Final Determination, the Department calculated BTIC’s estimated weightedaverage dumping margin using the A-to1 See Beijing Tianhai Indus. Co. v. United States, Slip Op. 17–105 (CIT August 17, 2017) (Beijing Tianhai IV); see also Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, High Pressure Steel Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China, Beijing Tianhai Indus. Co., Ltd. v. United States, Court No. 12–00203, Slip Op. 17–79 (CIT July 5, 2017), dated August 3, 2017 (Third Remand Redetermination); High Pressure Steel Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less than Fair Value, 77 FR 26739 (May 7, 2012) (Final Determination), and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum; and High Pressure Steel Cylinders from the People’s Republic of China: Antidumping Duty Order, 77 FR 37377 (June 21, 2012) (Order). 2 See Final Determination, and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum at 23–24. PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 T comparison method, applied to all of BTIC’s export sales.3 In Beijing Tianhai I,4 the CIT held that the Department’s explanation of its ‘‘meaningful difference’’ analysis in the Final Determination was insufficient to satisfy the explanation requirement under section 777A(d)(1)(B)(ii) of the Act, and also found that ‘‘the explanation ignores the potential use of the {transaction-totransaction} methodology entirely.’’ 5 With respect to BTIC’s challenge to the Department’s application of the A-to-T methodology to all of BTIC’s export sales as being inconsistent with 19 CFR 351.414(f), a regulation BTIC alleged had been inappropriately withdrawn, the CIT also held that ‘‘even if the Department’s withdrawal of 19 CFR 351.414(f) (2007) was in violation of the APA’s {(Administrative Procedure Act)} notice and comment requirement, that error was harmless as it relates to the plaintiff in this case,’’ and also that ‘‘the Department need not adhere to the requirements of 19 CFR 351.414(f) (2007).’’ 6 The Court deferred resolution of several other issues pertaining to the Department’s targeted dumping analysis and application of the A-to-T comparison method when determining BTIC’s estimated weighted-average dumping margin in Beijing Tianhai I.7 Following the Department’s First Remand Redetermination,8 the CIT in Beijing Tianhai II sustained the Department’s Final Determination as to the other issues that BTIC challenged, for which the CIT had deferred consideration in Beijing Tianhai I.9 However, with regard to the Department’s ‘‘meaningful difference’’ analysis and the further analysis the Department provided in the First Remand Redetermination on that issue, the CIT held that ‘‘the Department has chosen a narrative rather than an explanation,’’ and ‘‘failed to satisfy the requirements of the statute.’’ 10 The Court again remanded that issue to the Department.11 3 Id. at 24–26.
