SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing an antidumping duty order on stainless steel flanges from the People’s Republic of China (China). AGENCY: DATES: Applicable August 1, 2018. Ian Hamilton, 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) 482–4798. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background In accordance with section 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.210(c), on June 11, 2018, Commerce published its affirmative Final VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:07 Jul 31, 2018 Jkt 244001 Determination in the less than fair value (LTFV) investigation of stainless steel flanges from China.1 On July 25, 2018, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination pursuant to section 735(d) of the Act, that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of LTFV imports of stainless steel flanges from China, within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A) of the Act.2 Scope of the Order The products covered by this order are stainless steel flanges from China. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the Appendix to this notice. Antidumping Duty Order In accordance with sections 735(b)(1)(A) and 735(d) of the Act, the ITC has notified Commerce of its final determination in this investigation, in which it found that imports of stainless steel flanges from China are materially injuring a U.S. industry.3 Therefore, in accordance with sections 735(c)(2) and 736(a) of the Act, we are publishing this antidumping duty order. As a result of the ITC’s final determination, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, Commerce will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise, for all relevant entries of stainless steel flanges from China. These antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of stainless steel flanges from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after March 28, 2018, the date on which Commerce published the Preliminary Determination,4 but will not include entries occurring after the expiration of the provisional measures period and before publication of the ITC’s final injury determination, as further described below. 1 See Stainless Steel Flanges from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 83 FR 26959 (June 11, 2018) (Final Determination). 2 See ITC Letter regarding stainless steel flanges from China, dated July 25, 2018 (ITC Notification); see also Stainless Steel Flanges from China, Inv. No. 731–TA–1383 (Final), USITC Pub. 4807, (July 2018). 3 See ITC Notification. 4 See Stainless Steel Flanges from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 83 FR 13244 (March 28, 2018) (Preliminary Determination). PO 00000 Frm 00010 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation In accordance with section 735(c)(1)(B) of the Act, we will instruct CBP to continue to suspend liquidation on entries of subject merchandise from China. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the estimated amount by which the normal value exceeds the U.S. price as indicated in the chart below. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this subject merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated antidumping duty margin.5 The ‘‘China-wide’’ rate applies to all exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed in the table below. Provisional Measures Section 733(d) of the Act states that instructions to suspend liquidation issued pursuant to an affirmative preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months, except where exporters representing a significant proportion of exports of subject merchandise request to extend the four-month period to six months. Therefore, the four-month period beginning on March 28, 2018, the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination, ended on July 25, 2018. Furthermore, section 737(b) of the Act states that definitive duties are to begin on the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act and our practice, we will instruct CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of stainless steel flanges from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 26, 2018, the day after which the provisional measures expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the ITC’s final injury determination in the Federal Register. Suspension of liquidation will resume on the date of publication of the ITC’s final determination in the Federal Register. Estimated Dumping Margins Commerce determines that the estimated final weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: 5 See E:\FR\FM\01AUN1.SGM section 736(a)(3) of the Act. 01AUN1
