Stainless Steel Bar From Brazil, India, Japan, and Spain: 
Continuation of Antidumping Duty Order (India) and Revocation of 
Antidumping Duty Orders (Brazil, Japan, and Spain)

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

SUMMARY: As a result of the determinations by the Department of 
Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC) that 
revocation of the antidumping duty order on stainless steel bar (SSB) 
from India would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping 
and material injury to an industry in the United States, Commerce is 
publishing a notice of continuation of the antidumping duty order. In 
addition, as a result of the ITC's determinations that revocation of 
the antidumping duty orders on SSB from Brazil, Japan, and Spain is not 
likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to an 
industry in the United States, Commerce is revoking the antidumping 
duty orders on SSB from Brazil, Japan, and Spain.

DATES: Antidumping Revocation (Brazil, Japan, and Spain): Effective 
August 9, 2017; Antidumping Continuation (India): Applicable October 3, 
2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On February 21, 1995, Commerce published the antidumping duty 
orders on SSB from Brazil, India, and Japan.\1\ On March 2, 1995, 
Commerce published the antidumping duty order on SSB from Spain.\2\ On 
July 3, 2017, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the fourth 
five-year (sunset) reviews of the antidumping duty orders on SSB from 
Brazil, India, Japan, and Spain, pursuant to section 751(c) of the 
Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\3\

Brazil, India, and Japan, 60 FR 9661 (February 21, 1995).

    \3\ See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 82 FR 30844 
(July 3, 2017).

    Commerce conducted these sunset reviews on an expedited basis, 
pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), because it received complete, timely, and 
adequate responses from a domestic interested party but no substantive 
responses from respondent interested parties. As a result of its 
reviews, Commerce determined that revocation of the antidumping duty 
orders would likely lead to a continuation or recurrence of dumping.\4\ 
Commerce, therefore, notified the ITC of the magnitude of the margins 
likely to prevail should the antidumping duty orders be revoked.

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

    On September 21, 2018, the ITC published its determinations, 
pursuant to section 751(c) and 752(a) of the Act, that revocation of 
the antidumping duty order on SSB from India would likely lead to a 
continuation or recurrence of material injury to an industry in the 
United States within a reasonably foreseeable time, but that revocation 
of the antidumping duty orders on SSB from Brazil, Japan, and Spain 
would not be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material 
injury within a reasonably foreseeable time.\5\

respect to the orders means articles of stainless steel in straight 
lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-
drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a 
uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of 
circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including 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-length flat-rolled products (i.e., 
cut-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. The SSB subject to the 
orders is currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.10.00, 
7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 of the Harmonized

respect to the order means articles of stainless steel in straight 
lengths that have been either hot-rolled, forged, turned, cold-
drawn, cold-rolled or otherwise cold-finished, or ground, having a 
uniform solid cross section along their whole length in the shape of 
circles, segments of circles, ovals, rectangles (including 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.
    Furthermore, effective for entries entered, or withdrawn for 
warehouse, for consumption on or after February 1, 2010, the term 
does not include one SSB product under Grade 304 and two types of 
SSB products under Grade 440C. (1) The Grade 304 product meets the 
following descriptions: round cross-section, cold finished, chrome 
plated (plating thickness 10 microns or greater), hardness of 
plating a minimum 750 HV on the Vickers Scale, maximum roundness 
deviation of 0.020 mm (based on circularity tolerance described in

3005 mm, in nominal outside diameters ranging from 6 mm to 30 mm 
(diameter tolerance for any size from minus 0.010 mm to minus 0.053 
mm). Tolerance can be defined as the specified permissible deviation 
from a specified nominal dimension; for example if the nominal 
outside diameter of the product entering is 6 mm, then the actual 
measured sizes should fall within 5.947 mm to 5.990 mm; (2) The 
first Grade 440C product meets the following descriptions: round 
cross-section, cold finished, heat treated through induction 
hardening, minimum Rockwell hardness of 56 Hardness of 56 HRC,

from 3 mm to 38.10 mm (diameter tolerance for any size from 0.00 mm 
to minus 0.150 mm). Tolerance can be defined as the specified 
permissible deviation from a specified nominal dimension; for 
example if the nominal outside diameter of the product entering is 3 
mm, then the actual measured sizes should fall within 2.850 mm to 
3.000 mm; (3) The second Grade 440C product meets the following
