SUMMARY: On June 19, 2018, the United States Court of International Trade (Court) issued its final judgment in Xi’an Metals & Minerals Import & Export Co., Ltd. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 15–00109, sustaining, in part, and vacating, in part, the U.S. Department of Commerce’s (Commerce) final remand results in the fifth 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, 2012, through July 31, 2013, and that Commerce is amending the final results with respect to the dumping margin assigned to The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. (Stanley). The margin for Xi’an Metals & Minerals Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Xi’an Metals) remains unchanged as a result of the Court’s final judgment. DATES: Applicable June 19, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 8, 2015, Commerce issued the Final Results, in which it determined weighted-average dumping margins of 13.19 percent for Stanley and 72.52 percent Xi’an Metals.1 On September 6, 2017, the Court remanded to Commerce certain aspects of the Final Results, ordering Commerce to reconsider, in relevant part: (1) The potential double counting of certain 1 See Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review, 2012–2013, 80 FR 18816 (April 8, 2015) and accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (Final Results).

The resulting antidumping margins for Xi’an Metals and Stanley were 64.27 percent and 8.04 percent, respectively.7 On June 19, 2018, the Court sustained the AR5 Remand Redetermination with respect to the correction of the transcription error in Stanley’s FOP database.8 In addition, the Court vacated the remand order with respect to the issue of the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios, and reinstated this aspect of Commerce’s Final Results.9 In light of the Court’s Final Judgment, the dumping margin for Xi’an Metals is unchanged from its dumping margin assigned in the Final Results. Additionally, because the Court reinstated the Final Results with respect to the calculation of the surrogate financial ratios, for these amended final results, we recalculated Stanley’s dumping margin to reflect only the correction of the transcription error in Stanley’s FOP database.10 2 See Xi’an Metals & Minerals Import & Export Co., Ltd. v.
