Stainless Steel Bar From India: Final Determination of No Shipments; Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016-2017, 6840-6841 [2018-03160]

Download as PDF 6840 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 32 / Thursday, February 15, 2018 / Notices sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES in 2016 to better reflect the visitor’s entry experience into the U.S. This was requested by the U.S. Department of Commerce Travel and Tourism Advisory Board to measure compliance with U.S. National Goals. The revised Survey questionnaire reflects changes in various questions relating to: Trip purpose; Payment methods; Booking/Information sources; additional package components, health care/vaccinations, travel insurance information, additional transportation utilized, Assessment of the visitor’s entry and overall experience; and intentions for further travel to the United States; Ethnicity/race. Several questions from the pre-existing 1996 questionnaire were eliminated to further streamline the survey. II. Method of Collection The survey instrument/questionnaire (‘Survey of International Air Travelers’, a/k/a SIAT) continues to be in paper format and is self-administered by the passenger who volunteers to take the survey, either while in the departure gate area or on-board the flight. The flights are selected randomly and this approach is described as ‘cluster sampling.’ The majority (90%) of the passenger surveys are collected in U.S. airport departure gate areas. About 10% of all the passenger surveys are collected during flight (on-board) post departure (Canada is not part of the program). U.S. and foreign flag airlines that volunteer to participate in the Survey program enable the collection either in U.S. departure gate areas or onboard flights. NTTO is planning to change the format to electronic or to an equally statistically valid process once compelling results have been attained. To date there have been four ‘e-Survey’ tests: The first test in partnership with Global Distribution Systems (GDS), the second and third tests with major airlines in their respective boarding areas to leverage passenger’s personal electronic devices (PED) and Wi-Fi capabilities in the airports and on-board certain flights, and the fourth test used ‘tablet’ devices to capture passenger responses in the airport gate areas. Other tests are planned in the foreseeable future based on the results of NTTO’s recent request for information as preparation for the next contract cycle. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0625–0227. Form Number(s): None. Type of Review: Regular submission [extension of a current information collection]. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:01 Feb 14, 2018 Jkt 244001 Affected Public: Individuals or households.

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. SSB means articles of 
stainless steel in straight lengths that have been either hot-rolled,

ground, having a uniform solid cross section along their whole length

squares), triangles, hexagons, octagons, or other convex polygons. SSB 
includes cold-finished 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-to-length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut-to-length 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 thickness), wire (i.e., cold-formed products in 
coils, of any uniform solid cross section along their whole length, 
which do not conform to the definition of flat-rolled products), and 
angles, shapes, and sections.
    Imports of these products are currently classifiable under 
subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 
of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTS). Although the HTS subheadings 
are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written 
description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, Commerce received a claim of 
no shipments from Ambica and Bhansali. In the Preliminary Results, 
Commerce preliminarily found that Ambica and Bhansali did not have 
reviewable entries during the POR.
    After issuing the Preliminary Results, Commerce received no 
comments from interested parties, and has not received any information 
that would cause it to alter its preliminary determination. Therefore, 
for these final results, Commerce continues to find that both Ambica 
and Bhansali had no shipments during the POR.

Assessment of Antidumping Duties

    In accordance with Commerce's practice, for entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR for which Ambica or Bhansali did not know 
that the merchandise was destined for the United States, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate such entries at the all-others rate if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 
15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Ambica and 
Bhansali will remain unchanged from the rate assigned to each company 
in the completed segment for the most recent period for each company; 
(2) for other producers and exporters covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the completed segment for the most recent 
period of this proceeding in which that producer or exporter 
participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, 
a prior review, or the original investigation, but the producer is, 
then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the

other producers or exporters will continue to be 12.45 percent, the 
all-others rate established in the investigation.\3\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.
