Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description of the scope of the order remains dispositive. For a full description of the scope of the Order, see Issues and Decision Memorandum.4 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case briefs filed by parties in this review are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, which is incorporated herein by reference. A list of the issues which each party raised, follows in the Appendix to this notice. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and is made available to the public via Enforcement and Compliance’s Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov, and it is available to all parties in the Central Records Unit, Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building. In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum is available at https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, and for the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we made revisions to our preliminary calculations of the weighted-average dumping margin for Shanghai Wells.5 Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, we found that information placed on the record by Shanghai Wells demonstrates that this entity is entitled to separate rate status, which we preliminarily granted.6 We received no information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering the determination with respect to the separate rate status of this entity. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that Shanghai Wells is eligible for a separate rate. Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for the POR from October 1, 2016, through September 30, 2017: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd./Hong Kong Wells Ltd. 7 ................................................................................................................. 9 See Glycine from India, Japan, and Thailand: Postponement of Preliminary Determinations; Glycine from India CVD Preliminary Determination; and Glycine from Thailand CVD Preliminary Determination. 1 See Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016– 2017, 83 FR 32634 (July 13, 2018) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China; 2016– 2017,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:20 Oct 22, 2018 Jkt 247001 adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 3 See Notice of Antidumping Duty Order: Steel Wire Garment Hangers from the People’s Republic of China, 73 FR 58111 (October 6, 2008) (Order). 4 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 2. 5 Id. at 2–4. 6 See Preliminary Results, 83 FR at 32634; see also Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 4–5. 7 In the first administrative review of the Order, Commerce found that Shanghai Wells Hanger Co., Ltd. and Hong Kong Wells Ltd.
