On September 26, 2018, the petitioner 2 in the steel racks LTFV investigation submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determination in the investigation to the maximum extent permitted under the statute.3 The petitioner requested the postponement to provide Commerce, and the petitioner, time to review questionnaire responses and identify deficiencies within those responses, and to provide time for Commerce to issue, and receive responses to, supplemental questionnaires prior to the preliminary determination.4 For the reasons stated above by the petitioner, and because there are no compelling reasons to deny the request, Commerce, in accordance with section 733(c)(1)(A) of the Act, is postponing the deadline for the preliminary determination in the steel racks LTFV investigation by 50 days (i.e., until 190 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determination in the steel racks LTFV investigation no later than January 16, 2019. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination in this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding the Preliminary Results, we have made no 
changes to our calculations. Therefore, the final results do not differ 
from the Preliminary Results.

Final Results of Review

    As a result of this review, we determine that, for the period June 
1, 2016, through May 31, 2017, the following dumping margin exists:

Assessment Rates

    Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this 
review. Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions 
directly to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final 
results of review. Since Ercros' weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    Commerce clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on May 
6, 2003.\4\ This clarification will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Ercros for which these companies 
did not know that the merchandise was destined for the United States. 
In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate un-reviewed 
entries at the all-others rate during the POR if there is no rate for

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective 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 Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act): (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Ercros will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this review, except

in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for other 
manufacturers and exporters covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which that manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for 
the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the 
manufacturer of subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for 
all other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be 24.83 percent, 
the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.\5\ These

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation

subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which
