analysis of all issues raised in the case briefs, within 120 days of 
publication of these preliminary results in the Federal Register, 
pursuant to section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\11\ The final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated 
duties, where applicable.\12\ We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 
days after the publication date of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \12\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this 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shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 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 Inmax and Region 
listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for 
previously reviewed or investigated companies not listed above, the 
cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate 
published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in 
which they were reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in 
this review, a prior review, or in the investigation but the producer 
is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 2.66 percent. 
These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect 
until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and sections 19 CFR 
351.213(h)(1) and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: August 3, 2018.

Deputy Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.

Appendix I--Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the antidumping duty order is certain 
steel nails having a nominal shaft length not exceeding 12 
inches.\13\ Certain steel nails include, but are not limited to, 
nails made from round wire and nails that are cut from flat-rolled 
steel. Certain steel nails may be of one piece construction or 
constructed of two or more pieces. Certain steel nails may be 
produced from any type of steel, and may have any type of surface 
finish, head type, shank, point type and shaft diameter. Finishes 
include, but are not limited to, coating in vinyl, zinc (galvanized, 
including but not limited to electroplating or hot dipping one or 
more times), phosphate, cement, and paint. Certain steel nails may 
have one or more surface finishes. Head styles include, but are not 
limited to, flat, projection, cupped, oval, brad, headless, double, 
countersunk, and sinker. Shank styles include, but are not limited 
to, smooth, barbed, screw threaded, ring shank and fluted. Screw-
threaded nails subject to this proceeding are driven using direct 
force and not by turning the nail using a tool that engages with the 
head. Point styles include, but are not limited to, diamond, needle, 
chisel and blunt or no point. Certain steel nails may be sold in 
bulk, or they may be collated in any manner using any material.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ The shaft length of certain steel nails with flat heads or 
parallel shoulders under the head shall be measured from under the 
head or shoulder to the tip of the point. The shaft length of all 
other certain steel nails shall be measured overall.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Excluded from the scope of this order are certain steel nails 
packaged in combination with one or more non-subject articles, if 
the total number of nails of all types, in aggregate regardless of 
size, is less than 25. If packaged in combination with one or more 
non-subject articles, certain steel nails remain subject merchandise 
if the total number of nails of all types, in aggregate regardless 
of size, is equal to or greater than 25, unless otherwise excluded 
based on the other exclusions below.
    Also excluded from the scope are certain steel nails with a 
nominal shaft length of one inch or less that are (a) a component of 
an unassembled article, (b) the total number of nails is sixty (60) 
or less, and (c) the imported unassembled article falls into one of 
the following eight groupings: (1) Builders' joinery and carpentry 
of wood that are classifiable as windows, French-windows and their 
frames; (2) builders' joinery and carpentry of wood that are 
classifiable as doors and their frames and thresholds; (3) swivel
