Download as PDF 4773 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 33 / Tuesday, February 19, 2019 / Notices to include information from DIIBs that were closed after the POI. As a result, the estimated weighted-average dumping margin for C ¸ ayirova becomes 12.52%; and for Tosc¸elik becomes 4.10%. The all-others rate becomes 4.33%. On December 19, 2018, the CIT entered judgment sustaining Commerce’s Final Redetermination with respect to the date of sale determination and sustaining the Second Remand Redetermination with respect to the duty drawback adjustments.9 Thus, the effective date of this notice is December 29, 2018. Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,10 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,11 the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (Federal Circuit) held that, pursuant to section 516A of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce must publish a notice of court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Commerce determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision.12 The CIT’s December 19, 2018, judgment constitutes a final decision of that court that is not in harmony with Commerce’s Final Determination and Order. Thus, this notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken and section 516A of the Act. Amended Final Determination and Amended Order Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce is amending its Final Determination and Order with respect to the weighted-average dumping margins and AD cash deposit rates for C ¸ ayirova, Tosc¸elik, and the companies covered by the all-others rate. The revised weighted-average dumping margins and cash deposit rates for these entities are as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Exporter/producer C ¸ ayirova Boru Sanayi ve Ticaret A.S./Yu¨cel Boru Ithalat-Ihracat ve Pazarlama A.S ............................................ Tosc¸elik Profil ve Sac Endustrisi A.S./Tosyali Dis Ticaret A.S ............................................................................... All Others ................................................................................................................................................................. Note: The cash deposit rates listed above are adjusted to account for the applicable export subsidy rate of 0.86 percent found in the final determination of the companion countervailing duty investigation of this merchandise imported from Turkey.13 Cash Deposit Requirements Because the above-referenced exporters/producers do not have superseding cash deposit rates, i.e., there have been no final results published in subsequent administrative reviews, Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to collect the revised cash deposit amounts listed above for C ¸ ayirova, Tosc¸elik, and companies covered by the all others rate, effective, December 29, 2018. Notification to Interested Parties This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(c)(1) and (e), and 777(i)(1) of the Act. Dated: February 12, 2019.

SUMMARY: Based on affirmative final determinations by the Department of Commerce (Commerce) and the International Trade Commission (ITC), Commerce is issuing antidumping duty (AD) and countervailing duty (CVD) tkelley on DSKBCP9HB2PROD with NOTICES VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:46 Feb 15, 2019 Jkt 247001 Background In accordance with sections 705(d) and 735(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), on November 20, 2018, Commerce published its affirmative final determination of sales at less than fair value (LTFV) and its affirmative final determination that countervailable subsidies are being provided to producers and exporters of rubber bands from China.1 On February 11, 2019, the ITC notified Commerce of its final affirmative determinations that an industry in the United States is materially injured by reason of LTFV imports and subsidized imports of rubber bands from China, within the meaning of sections 705(b)(1)(A)(i) and 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act.2 The ITC also notified Commerce of its negative findings concerning critical circumstances with regard to imports of this product from China.3 Scope of the Orders The products covered by these orders are rubber bands from China. For a complete description of the scope of the orders, see the Appendix to this notice. AD Order On February 11, 2019, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the ITC notified Commerce of its final determination that an industry in the United States is materially injured within the meaning of section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act by reason of imports of rubber bands from China that are sold in the United States at LTFV.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephanie Berger at (202) 482–2483 (AD) and Kristen Johnson at 202–482– 4793 (CVD), AD/CVD Operations, Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 1 See Rubber Bands from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 83 FR 58547 (November 20, 2018) (AD China Rubber Bands Final); and Rubber Bands from the People’s Republic of China: Final Affirmative Countervailing Duty Determination, 83 FR 58538 (November 20, 2018) (CVD China Rubber Bands Final). 2 See Letter to the Honorable Gary Taverman, Acting Assistance Secretary of Commerce for Enforcement and Compliance, from David S. Johanson, Chairman of the ITC, regarding ‘‘Notification of ITC Final Determinations,’’ dated January 7, 2019 (Filed in ACCESS on February 11, 2019) (ITC Notification); see also Rubber Bands from China, Investigation Nos. 701–TA–598 and 731–TA–1408 (Final), (USITC Publication 4863). 3 Id. PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Therefore, in accordance with section 735(c)(2) of the Act, we are issuing this AD order. Because the ITC determined that imports of rubber bands from China are materially injuring a U.S. industry, unliquidated entries of such merchandise from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption are subject to the assessment of antidumping duties. Therefore, 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 rubber bands from China. Antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of rubber bands from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after September 6, 2018, the date of publication of the AD preliminary determination 4 and before January 4, 2019. Section 733(d) of the Act states that the suspension of liquidation pursuant to a preliminary determination may not remain in effect for more than four months. Therefore, entries of subject merchandise from China made on or after January 4, 2019, and prior to the date of publication of the ITC’s final determination in the Federal Register are not liable for the assessment of antidumping duties due to Commerce’s discontinuation of the suspension of liquidation. Continuation of Suspension of Liquidation—AD In accordance with section 736 of the Act, we will instruct CBP to reinstitute the suspension of liquidation on entries of rubber bands from China, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination. These instructions suspending liquidation will remain in effect until further notice. We will also instruct CBP to require cash deposits equal to the amount as indicated below. Accordingly, effective on the date of publication in the Federal Register of the ITC’s final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on the subject merchandise, a cash deposit 4 See Less-Than-Fair-Value Investigation of Rubber Bands from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Preliminary Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 83 FR 45213 (September 6, 2018) (AD China Rubber Bands Prelim).
