SUMMARY: On March 22, 2018, the United States Court of International Trade (the Court) issued its final judgment in Itochu Building Products Co., Inc., et al. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 12–00065, sustaining the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (Commerce) final remand results in the second administrative review of certain steel nails from the People’s Republic of China (China). Commerce is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with Commerce’s final results of the administrative review, covering the period of review (POR) August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010, and that Commerce is amending the final results with respect to the dumping margins assigned to Tianjin Jinchi Metal Products Co., Ltd. (Jinchi) and Tianjin Jinghai County Hongli Industry & Business Co. (Hongli). Because Jinchi’s and Hongli’s margins changed, the margin for those companies not individually examined but receiving a separate rate also changed. AGENCY: DATES: Applicable April 2, 2018. Paul Walker, AD/CVD Operations Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: 202.482.0413. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On March 1, 2012, Commerce issued the Final Results, in which it determined a weight-averaged dumping margin of 47.76 percent for Jinchi, 78.27 percent for Hongli, and 19.30 percent E:\FR\FM\09JYN1.SGM 09JYN1 31732 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 131 / Monday, July 9, 2018 / Notices for the separate rate companies.1 Also, on April 24, 2012, Commerce issued the Amended Final Results, however, the weighted-average dumping margins did not change.2 On June 22, 2017, the Court remanded Commerce’s Final Results and Amended Final Results and instructed Commerce to reconsider each of the following issues: (1) The selection of surrogate values for steel plate and surrogate financial ratios; (2) its application of adverse facts available to Jinchi’s missing factors of production; and (3) the Court’s questions and MidContinent Nail Corporation (the petitioner)’s responses regarding the withdrawal of review requests in this administrative review.3 The Court also granted Commerce’s request for voluntary remand to reconsider its use of a specific financial statement.4 On October 20, 2017, Commerce filed the AR2 Remand with the Court.5 Commerce maintained its selection of financial statements for calculating the surrogate financial ratios and selected, under protest, a different surrogate value for steel plate.6 Additionally, under protest, Commerce recalculated Jinchi’s dumping margin by applying neutral facts available to the missing factors of production for hard-cut masonry nails produced by an unaffiliated supplier.7 Moreover, Commerce examined the petitioner’s responses to the Court’s questions.8 As a result, there are calculation changes due to selecting a different surrogate value for steel plate and applying neutral facts available to the missing factors of production for hard-cut masonry nails in Jinchi’s dumping margin. Thus, the resulting antidumping margin for Hongli is 36.23 percent, for Jinchi is 53.47 percent, and for the Separate Rate Applicants 9 is 14.48 percent.10 There is no change to the dumping margin for The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. and Stanley Black & Decker, Inc./ Stanley Fastening Systems, LP (Stanley).11 On March 22, 2018, the Court sustained the AR2 Remand.12 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341,13 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,14 the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce must publish a notice of a court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Commerce determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The Court’s March 22, 2018, judgment sustaining the AR2 Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony with Commerce’s Amended Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce is amending the Amended Final Results with respect to Jinchi, Hongli, and the Separate-Rate Applicants.

Certain Steel Nails From the People's Republic of China: Notice 
of Court Decision Not in Harmony With Final Results of Administrative 
Review and Notice of Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Review

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: On March 22, 2018, the United States Court of International 
Trade (the Court) issued its final judgment in Itochu Building Products 
Co., Inc., et al. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 12-00065, 
sustaining the U.S. Department of Commerce's (Commerce) final remand 
results in the second administrative review of certain steel nails from 
the People's Republic of China (China). Commerce is notifying the 
public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with 
Commerce's final results of the administrative review, covering the 
period of review (POR) August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010, and that 
Commerce is amending the final results with respect to the dumping 
margins assigned to Tianjin Jinchi Metal Products Co., Ltd. (Jinchi) 
and Tianjin Jinghai County Hongli Industry & Business Co. (Hongli). 
Because Jinchi's and Hongli's margins changed, the margin for those 
companies not individually examined but receiving a separate rate also 
changed.

DATES: Applicable April 2, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On March 1, 2012, Commerce issued the Final Results, in which it 
determined a weight-averaged dumping margin of 47.76 percent for 
Jinchi, 78.27 percent for Hongli, and 19.30 percent

[[Page 31732]]

for the separate rate companies.\1\ Also, on April 24, 2012, Commerce 
issued the Amended Final Results, however, the weighted-average dumping 
margins did not change.\2\ On June 22, 2017, the Court remanded 
Commerce's Final Results and Amended Final Results and instructed 
Commerce to reconsider each of the following issues: (1) The selection 
of surrogate values for steel plate and surrogate financial ratios; (2) 
its application of adverse facts available to Jinchi's missing factors 
of production; and (3) the Court's questions and Mid-Continent Nail 
Corporation (the petitioner)'s responses regarding the withdrawal of 
review requests in this administrative review.\3\ The Court also 
granted Commerce's request for voluntary remand to reconsider its use 
of a specific financial statement.\4\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On October 20, 2017, Commerce filed the AR2 Remand with the 
Court.\5\ Commerce maintained its selection of financial statements for 
calculating the surrogate financial ratios and selected, under protest, 
a different surrogate value for steel plate.\6\ Additionally, under 
protest, Commerce recalculated Jinchi's dumping margin by applying 
neutral facts available to the missing factors of production for hard-
cut masonry nails produced by an unaffiliated supplier.\7\ Moreover, 
Commerce examined the petitioner's responses to the Court's 
questions.\8\ As a result, there are calculation changes due to 
selecting a different surrogate value for steel plate and applying 
neutral facts available to the missing factors of production for hard-
cut masonry nails in Jinchi's dumping margin. Thus, the resulting 
antidumping margin for Hongli is 36.23 percent, for Jinchi is 53.47 
percent, and for the Separate Rate Applicants \9\ is 14.48 percent.\10\ 
There is no change to the dumping margin for The Stanley Works 
(Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. and Stanley Black & Decker, 
Inc./Stanley Fastening Systems, LP (Stanley).\11\ On March 22, 2018, 
the Court sustained the AR2 Remand.\12\

Timken Notice

    In its decision in Timken, 893 F.2d at 341,\13\ as clarified by 
Diamond Sawblades,\14\ the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit 
(CAFC) held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce must publish a notice of a court 
decision that is not ``in harmony'' with a Commerce determination and 
must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ``conclusive'' court 
decision. The Court's March 22, 2018, judgment sustaining the AR2 
Remand constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony 
with Commerce's Amended Final Results. This notice is published in 
fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken.

Amended Final Results

    Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce is amending 
the Amended Final Results with respect to Jinchi, Hongli, and the 
Separate-Rate Applicants. The revised weighted-average dumping margins 
for these exporters during the period August 1, 2009, through July 31,
