VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:42 Aug 02, 2019 Jkt 247001 Postponement of Preliminary Determination Section 733(b)(1)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires Commerce to issue the preliminary determination in a LTFV investigation within 140 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation. However, section 733(c)(1)(A)(b)(1) of the Act permits Commerce to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 190 days after the date on which Commerce initiated the investigation if: (A) The petitioner makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) Commerce concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. Commerce will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On July 10, 2019, the petitioner 2 submitted a timely request that Commerce postpone the preliminary determination in the LTFV investigation.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement to allow Commerce time to sufficiently review all questionnaires responses and request clarification and additional information as necessary.4 For the reasons stated above 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 by 50 days (i.e., 190 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated). As a result, Commerce will issue its preliminary determination no later than October 2, 2019. In accordance with section 735(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determination of this investigation will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determination, unless postponed at a later date.

In the formula used to calculate POSCO’s total cost of manufacturing, the exclusion of the conversion cost variable resulted in POSCO’s total cost of manufacturing being understated. Accordingly, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), that an unintentional ministerial error was made in the Final Results. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the Final Results to reflect the correction of this ministerial error. Specifically, we have recalculated POSCO’s total cost of manufacturing by including the missing variable. The petitioner also alleged that Commerce inadvertently omitted certain freight expenses that should be used to cap freight revenues in the home market. In the Final Results, we inadvertently limited the freight expenses to inland freight—plant/ warehouse to customer, while excluding inland freight—plant to warehouse and warehousing. Accordingly, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), that an unintentional ministerial error was made in the Final Results. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the Final Results to reflect the correction of this ministerial error. Specifically, we have recalculated POSCO’s home market freight expenses to include all inland freight, as well as warehousing, in the formula used to cap POSCO’s home market freight revenues. Finally, POSCO alleges that Commerce made an inadvertent error in 4 See 19 CFR 351.224(f).

Accordingly, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), that an unintentional ministerial error was made in the Final Results. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the Final Results to reflect the correction of this ministerial error. Specifically, we have recalculated POSCO’s G&A expense ratio to include the missing income adjustment. The revised calculation to correct the errors describe above changes the cash deposit rate for POSCO from 10.11 percent to 11.10 percent. In addition, because POSCO’s dumping margin was used in the calculation of the rate for non-examined companies in the Final Results, our corrections to POSCO’s calculation results in an adjustment to the rate for non-examined companies as well, to 8.27 percent. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well as Commerce’s analysis of the ministerial error allegations, see the Ministerial Error Memorandum.5 entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the amended final results of this 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).7 Where Commerce calculated a weightedaverage 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- (or customer-) specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.8 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.9 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or perunit rate is zero or de minimis, Amended Final Results of the Review Commerce will instruct CBP to liquidate We are assigning the following appropriate entries without regard to weighted-average dumping margins to antidumping duties.10 the firms listed below for the period For the companies which were not March 22, 2016 through September 30, selected for individual review, we will 2017: assign an assessment rate based on the Amended average of the cash deposit rates final calculated for Hyundai Steel Company Producer or exporter dumping (Hyundai Steel) and POSCO.

Legal Framework

    A ministerial error, as defined in section 751(h) of the Tariff Act 
of 1930, as amended (the Act), includes ``errors in addition, 
subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting 
from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other type 
of unintentional error which the administering authority considers 
ministerial.'' \4\ With respect to final results of administrative 
reviews, 19 CFR 351.224(e) provides that Commerce ``will analyze any 
comments received and, if appropriate, correct any ministerial error by 
amending . . . the final results of review. . . .''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.224(f).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ministerial Errors

    According to the petitioner, Commerce committed an inadvertent 
error within the meaning of section 735(e) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(f) with respect to its calculation of total cost of 
manufacturing by excluding the conversion cost variable. In the formula 
used to calculate POSCO's total cost of manufacturing, the exclusion of 
the conversion cost variable resulted in POSCO's total cost of 
manufacturing being understated. Accordingly, we have determined, in 
accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), that 
an unintentional ministerial error was made in the Final Results. 
Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the Final Results 
to reflect the correction of this ministerial error. Specifically, we 
have recalculated POSCO's total cost of manufacturing by including the 
missing variable.
    The petitioner also alleged that Commerce inadvertently omitted 
certain freight expenses that should be used to cap freight revenues in 
the home market. In the Final Results, we inadvertently limited the 
freight expenses to inland freight--plant/warehouse to customer, while 
excluding inland freight--plant to warehouse and warehousing. 
Accordingly, we have determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of 
the Act and 19 CFR 351.224(f), that an unintentional ministerial error 
was made in the Final Results. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce 
is amending the Final Results to reflect the correction of this 
ministerial error. Specifically, we have recalculated POSCO's home 
market freight expenses to include all inland freight, as well as 
warehousing, in the formula used to cap POSCO's home market freight 
revenues.
    Finally, POSCO alleges that Commerce made an inadvertent error in 
not including an income adjustment in the calculation of POSCO's 
general and administrative (G&A) expense ratio. Accordingly, we have 
determined, in accordance with section 751(h) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.224(f), that an unintentional ministerial error was made in the 
Final Results. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.224(e), Commerce is amending the 
Final Results to reflect the correction of this ministerial error. 
Specifically, we have recalculated POSCO's G&A expense ratio to include 
the missing income adjustment.
    The revised calculation to correct the errors describe above 
changes the cash deposit rate for POSCO from 10.11 percent to 11.10 
percent. In addition, because POSCO's dumping margin was used in the 
calculation of the rate for non-examined companies in the Final 
Results, our corrections to POSCO's calculation results in an 
adjustment to the rate for non-examined companies as well, to 8.27 
percent. For a detailed discussion of these ministerial errors, as well 
as Commerce's analysis of the ministerial error allegations, see the 
Ministerial Error Memorandum.\5\

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculation performed for these amended 
final results in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ The non-examined companies subject to this review are: 
Daewoo International Corp.; Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd.; Dongkuk 
Industries Co., Ltd.; Marubeni-Itochu Steel Korea; Soon Hong Trading 
Co.; and Sungjin Co.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rate

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
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 amended final results of this 
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).\7\ 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- (or customer-) specific assessment rates based on 
the resulting per-unit rates.\8\ 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.\9\ 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

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the average of the cash deposit 
rates calculated for Hyundai Steel Company (Hyundai Steel) and POSCO. 
The amended final results of this review shall be the basis for the 
assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by 
the amended final results of this review and for future deposits of 
estimated duties, where applicable.\11\

    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Hyundai Steel and POSCO, 
or the non-examined companies for which the producer did not know that 
its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct 
CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is 
no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\12\

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
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 presumption that reimbursement of 
antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the destruction of proprietary information disclosed under 
APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). 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 the terms of an APO is a sanctionable 
violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These amended final results and notice are issued and published in 
accordance with sections 751(h) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR
