Ltd. (Dezhou Hualude) and its producers Tianjin Lingyu Metal Products Co., Ltd. (Tianjin Lingyu) and Tianjin Yongchang Metal Products Co., Ltd. (Tianjin Yongchang) from October 29, 2018, through November 8, 2018. In accordance with 19 CFR 351.309, we invited parties to comment on our Preliminary Results.

If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. Accordingly, the deadline for the final results of this review was revised to April 17, 2019.3 Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches.

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 I&D Memo, we revised the margin calculation for Stanley and Dezhou Hualude. Accordingly, for the final results, Commerce updated the sample rate to be assigned to the non-selected companies, which is based on an average of the rates of the three mandatory respondents, Stanley, Dezhou Hualude, and Shandong Dinglong Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Shandong Dinglong), as discussed in the I&D Memo. The Surrogate Values Memorandum contains further explanation of our changes to the surrogate values selected for Stanley’s factors of production.7 For a list of all issues addressed in these final results, please refer to Appendix II accompanying this notice. Final Determination of No Shipments In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that nine companies, Astrotech Steels Pvt. Ltd., Hebei Minmetals Co.

Ltd., Shandong Qingyun Hongyi Hardware Co. Ltd., Shanghai Jade Shuttle Hardware Tools Co. Ltd., did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice in non-market economy (NME) cases, we completed the review with respect to the abovenamed companies. Based on the certifications submitted by the aforementioned companies, and our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border 7 See Memorandum, ‘‘Eigth Antidumping Administrative Review of Certain Steel Nails from the People’s Republic of China: Surrogate Values for the Final Results,’’ dated concurrently with and hereby adopted by this notice (Surrogate Values Memorandum).

As noted in the ‘‘Assessment Rates’’ section below, Commerce intends to issue appropriate instructions to CBP for the above-named companies based on the final results of this review. Separate Rates In the Preliminary Results, we determined that 19 companies, in addition to the three mandatory respondents, met the criteria for separate rate status. We have not received any information since the issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, Commerce continues to find that these companies meet the criteria for a separate rate for the final results. Rate for Non-Selected Companies jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES As noted above, for the final results, the calculated rates for two of the mandatory respondents have changed from the Preliminary Results.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On September 11, 2018, Commerce published in the Federal Register 
the Preliminary Results of the administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on nails from China.\1\ Commerce conducted verification of 
Dezhou Hualade Hardware and Products Co. Ltd. (Dezhou Hualude) and its 
producers Tianjin Lingyu Metal Products Co., Ltd. (Tianjin Lingyu) and 
Tianjin Yongchang Metal Products Co., Ltd. (Tianjin Yongchang) from 
October 29, 2018, through November 8, 2018.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review 
and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2015-2017, 83 FR 
45883 (September 11, 2018) (Preliminary Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with 19 CFR 351.309, we invited parties to comment on 
our Preliminary Results. On February 13, 2019, Zhangjiagang Lianfeng 
Metals Products Co., Ltd.; Tianjin Jinghai County Hongli Industry & 
Business Co., Ltd., Tianjin Jinchi Metal Products Co., Ltd., Tianjin 
Zhonglian Metals Ware Co., Ltd., Shanghai Yueda Nails Industry Co., 
Ltd. aka Shanghai Yueda Nails Co., Ltd., and Shanxi Tianli Industries 
Co., Ltd.; The Stanley Works (Langfang) Fastening Systems Co., Ltd. and

Huixinshangmao Co., Ltd., SDC International Aust. PTY. LTD., S-Mart 
(Tianjin) Technology Development Co., Ltd., Shanxi Hairui Trade Co., 
Ltd., Shanxi Pioneer Hardware Industry Co., Ltd., and Shanxi Yuci Broad 
Wire Products Co., Ltd.; National Nail Corp.; Mid Continent Steel & 
Wire, Inc. (the petitioner); and Dezhou Hualude, submitted timely filed 
case briefs. Between February 19, 2019, and February 21, 2019, National 
Nail Corp., the petitioner, Dezhou Hualude, and Stanley submitted 
timely rebuttal briefs pursuant to our regulations. On February 25, 
2018, in response to Commerce's instructions, National Nail Corp. re-
filed its rebuttal brief with untimely new factual information 
redacted.
    On December 21, 2019, Commerce postponed the deadline for the final 
results of this review until March 8, 2019.\2\ Commerce exercised its 
discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal 
government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of 
operations on January 28, 2019. If the new deadline falls on a non-
business day, in accordance with Commerce's practice, the deadline will 
become the next business day. Accordingly, the deadline for the final 
results of this review was revised to April 17, 2019.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Memorandum, ``Certain Steel Nails from the People's 
Republic of China: Extension of Deadline for Final Results of 
Antidumping Duty Administrate Review,'' dated December 21, 2018.
    \3\ See Memorandum to the Record from Gary Taverman, Deputy 
Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, ``Deadlines 
Affected by the Partial Shutdown of the Federal Government,'' dated 
January 28, 2019. All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding 
have been extended by 40 days.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails 
having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails subject to 
the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule 
of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65, 
7317.00.75, and 7907.00.6000,\4\ 7318.29.0000, and 8206.00.0000.\5\ 
While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs 
purposes, the written description of the scope of the order, which is 
contained in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum (I&D 
Memo), is dispositive.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ Commerce added the Harmonized Tariff Schedule category 
7907.00.6000, ``Other articles of zinc: Other,'' to the language of 
the Order. See Memorandum to Gary Taverman, Senior Advisor for 
Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, through James C. 
Doyle, Director, Office VAntidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, regarding ``Certain Steel Nails from the People's 
Republic of China: Cobra Anchors Co. Ltd. Final Scope Ruling,'' 
(September 19, 2013).
    \5\ Commerce added the HTS categories 7318.29.000 and 
8206.00.0000 per a request by U.S. Customs and Border Protection on 
February 24, 2017.
    \6\ For a full description of the scope of the Order, see 
Memorandum, ``Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of 
China: Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the 
Ninth Antidumping Duty Administrative Review'' (April 17, 2019), 
which is adopted by this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Analysis of Comments Received

    We addressed all issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by 
parties to this review in the I&D Memo. Attached to this notice, in 
Appendix II, is a list of the issues which parties raised. The I&D Memo 
is a public document and is on file in the Central Records Unit (CRU), 
Room B8024 of the main Department of Commerce building, as well as 
electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). 
ACCESS is available to registered users at http://access.trade.gov and 
in the CRU. In addition, a complete version of the I&D Memo can be 
accessed directly on the internet at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed I&D Memo and the electronic versions of the I&D 
Memo 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 I&D Memo, we revised the margin calculation 
for Stanley and Dezhou Hualude. Accordingly, for the final results, 
Commerce updated the sample rate to be assigned to the non-selected 
companies, which is based on an average of the rates of the three 
mandatory respondents, Stanley, Dezhou Hualude, and Shandong Dinglong 
Import & Export Co., Ltd. (Shandong Dinglong), as discussed in the I&D 
Memo. The Surrogate Values Memorandum contains further explanation of 
our changes to the surrogate values selected for Stanley's factors of 
production.\7\ For a list of all issues addressed in these final 
results, please refer to Appendix II accompanying this notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See Memorandum, ``Eigth Antidumping Administrative Review of 
Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China: Surrogate 
Values for the Final Results,'' dated concurrently with and hereby 
adopted by this notice (Surrogate Values Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that nine 
companies, Astrotech Steels Pvt. Ltd., Hebei Minmetals Co. Ltd., 
Nanjing Caiqing Hardware Co., Ltd., Najing Toua Hardware & Tools Co., 
Ltd., Region Industries Co., Ltd., Region System Sdn. Bhd., Shandong 
Oriental Cherry Hardware Import & Export Co. Ltd., Shandong Qingyun 
Hongyi Hardware Co. Ltd., Shanghai Jade Shuttle Hardware Tools Co. 
Ltd., did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. 
Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice in non-market economy 
(NME) cases, we completed the review with respect to the above-named 
companies. Based on the certifications submitted by the aforementioned 
companies, and our analysis of U.S. Customs and Border

[[Page 17136]]

Protection (CBP) information, we continue to determine that these 
companies did not have any reviewable transactions during the POR. As 
noted in the ``Assessment Rates'' section below, Commerce intends to 
issue appropriate instructions to CBP for the above-named companies 
based on the final results of this review.

Separate Rates

    In the Preliminary Results, we determined that 19 companies, in 
addition to the three mandatory respondents, met the criteria for 
separate rate status. We have not received any information since the 
issuance of the Preliminary Results that provides a basis for 
reconsidering this preliminary determination. Therefore, Commerce 
continues to find that these companies meet the criteria for a separate 
rate for the final results.

Rate for Non-Selected Companies

    As noted above, for the final results, the calculated rates for two 
of the mandatory respondents have changed from the Preliminary Results. 
Accordingly, for the final results, Commerce has updated the sample 
rate to be assigned to the non-selected companies, which is based on an 
average of the rates of the three mandatory respondents, as discussed 
in the I&D Memo.

China-Wide Entity

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that 114 companies for which a 
review was requested had not established eligibility for a separate 
rate and, thus, were considered to be part of the China-wide entity.\8\ 
We have not received any information since the issuance of the 
Preliminary Results that provides a basis for reconsidering this 
preliminary determination. Therefore, Commerce continues to find that 
these companies will remain a part of the China-wide entity.\9\

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as 
amended (the Act), and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and 
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 publication of the final results of this 
administrative review.
    Where the respondent reported reliable entered values, we 
calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem rates by 
aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each 
importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered 
value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\10\ Where Commerce 
calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the total 
amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales 
quantity associated with those transactions, Commerce will direct CBP 
to assess importer-specific assessment rates based on the resulting 
per-unit rates.\11\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad 
valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 0.50 
percent), Commerce will instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties 
at the time of liquidation.\12\ Where an importer- (or customer-) 
specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce 
will instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.\13\ We intend to instruct CBP to liquidate entries 
containing subject merchandise exported by the China-wide entity at the 
China-wide rate.

    \12\ Id.
    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to Commerce's assessment practice, for entries that were 
not reported in the U.S. sales databases submitted by companies 
individually examined during this review, Commerce will instruct CBP to 
liquidate such entries at the China-wide entity rate. Additionally, if 
Commerce determines that an exporter had no shipments of the subject 
merchandise, any suspended entries that entered under that exporter's 
case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate) will be liquidated at the 
China-wide entity rate.\14\

of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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, as 
provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the exporters 
listed above, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the 
final results of review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, a 
zero cash deposit rate will be required for that company); (2) for 
previously investigated or reviewed China and non-China exporters not 
listed above that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will 
continue to be the exporter-specific rate published for the most recent 
period; (3) for all China exporters of subject merchandise which have 
not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate 
will be the China-Wide rate of 118.04 percent; and (4) for all non-
China exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their 
own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the 
China

[[Page 17137]]

exporters that supplied that non-China exporter. The deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed regarding these 
final results within five days of the date of publication of this 
notice to parties in this proceeding in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

Notification to Importers

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

Administrative Protective Orders

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return or 
destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective 
order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and 
terms of an APO is a violation which is subject to sanction.
    We are issuing and publishing these final results of administrative 
review in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: April 17, 2019.
