SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Commerce published the Preliminary Results of this administrative

Commerce received a timely-filed case brief from Uttam Galva Steels 
Limited (Uttam Galva). On March 11, 2019, Commerce received a timely-
filed rebuttal brief from California Steel Industries and Steel 
Dynamics Inc. (collectively, the petitioners). Commerce conducted this 
administrative review of the antidumping duty order on CORE from India 
in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 
1930, as amended (the Act).\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 29, 2019.\3\ If the new

deadline for the final results is now June 3, 2019.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, we found that JSW Steel Ltd. and JSW 
Coated Products Ltd. (collectively, JSW), had no shipments during the 
POR. Following the publication of the Preliminary Results, we received 
no comments from interested parties regarding this company, nor has any 
party submitted record evidence which would call this finding into 
question. Therefore, for the final results, we continue to find that 
JSW had no shipments during the POR. Accordingly, consistent with 
Commerce's practice, we intend to instruct U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries of merchandise 
produced by JSW, but exported by other parties without their own rate, 
at the all-others rate.\5\

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, Commerce has made 
no changes to the Preliminary Results. As stated in the Preliminary 
Results, we found that the application of facts otherwise available 
with adverse inferences, for Uttam Galva's dumping margin, pursuant to 
sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, was warranted. For further 
discussion, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of the Review

    We determine that, for the period of July 1, 2017, through June 30, 
2018, the following weighted-average dumping margin exists:

Uttam Galva Steels Limited \7\.............................       71.09
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with the final determination within five days 
after the date of any public announcement, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b). However, the final dumping margin assigned to Uttam Galva 
is based on adverse facts available with adverse inferences. 
Accordingly, no disclosure of calculations is necessary for these final 
results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ This rate also applies to: Atlantis International Services 
Company Ltd., Uttam Galva Steels (BVI) Limited, Uttam Galva Steels, 
Netherlands B.V., and Uttam Value Steels Limited. In the 
investigation, Commerce found these companies to be a single entity.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rate

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(A) of 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 shall instruct CBP to

[[Page 26820]]

apply an ad valorem assessment rate of 71.09 percent to all entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR which were produced and/or exported 
by Uttam Galva.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review 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 Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Uttam Galva will 
be the rate established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this administrative review but 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original investigation, but the producer is, the 
cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 0.00 percent, the all-others rate

Notification to Importers

responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) 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 the Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties occurred and 
the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (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/destruction 
of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).
