Steel threaded rod is certain threaded rod, bar, or studs, of carbon quality steel, having a solid, circular cross section, of any diameter, in any straight length, that have been forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-rolled, machine straightened, or otherwise cold-finished, and into which threaded grooves have been applied. In addition, the steel threaded rod, bar, or studs subject to the order are non-headed and threaded along greater than 25 percent of their total length. A variety of finishes or coatings, such as plain oil finish as a temporary rust protectant, zinc coating (i.e., galvanized, whether by electroplating or hot-dipping), paint, and other similar finishes and coatings, may be applied to the merchandise. Included in the scope of the order are steel threaded rod, bar, or studs, in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, by weight; and (3) none of the elements listed below exceeds the quantity, by weight, respectively indicated: • 1.80 percent of manganese, or • 1.50 percent of silicon, or • 1.00 percent of copper, or • 0.50 percent of aluminum, or • 1.25 percent of chromium, or • 0.30 percent of cobalt, or • 0.40 percent of lead, or • 1.25 percent of nickel, or • 0.30 percent of tungsten, or • 0.012 percent of boron, or • 0.10 percent of molybdenum, or • 0.10 percent of niobium, or • 0.41 percent of titanium, or • 0.15 percent of vanadium, or • 0.15 percent of zirconium. Steel threaded rod is currently classifiable under subheadings 7318.15.5051, 7318.15.5056, 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095 of the United States Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise is dispositive. 1 See Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2018– 2019, 84 FR 71900 (December 30, 2019) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Excluded from the scope of the order are: (a) Threaded rod, bar, or studs which are threaded only on one or both ends and the threading covers 25 percent or less of the total length; and (b) threaded rod, bar, or studs made to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) A193 Grade B7, ASTM A193 Grade B7M, ASTM A193 Grade B16, or ASTM A320 Grade L7. Final Determination of No Shipments and Status of the China-Wide Entity Commerce preliminarily found that Certified Products International Inc. (CPI) and RMB Fasteners Ltd. and IFI & Morgan Ltd. (collectively, RMB/IFI) had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. As noted in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we received no shipment statements from CPI and RMB/IFI, and these statements were consistent with the information we received from U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).2 No party commented on our preliminary no shipment finding with respect to CPI and RMB/IFI, and no party submitted record evidence that calls this finding into question. Therefore, for these final results, we continue to find that CPI and RMB/IFI did not have any shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR. In addition, we continue to find that the remaining 172 companies subject to this administrative review are part of the China-wide entity because they failed to file no-shipment statements, separate rate applications, or separate rate certifications.3 Because no party requested a review of the China-wide entity, and we did not self-initiate a review, the China-wide entity rate (i.e., 206.00 percent) 4 is not subject to change as a result of this review.5 Assessment Rates We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative review. Based on record evidence, we have determined that CPI and RMI/IFI had no shipments of subject merchandise and, therefore, pursuant to Commerce’s assessment practice, any suspended entries that entered under 2 See 3 See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 3–4. Appendix I; Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 71900. 4 See Certain Steel Threaded Rod from the People’s Republic of China: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 74 FR 8907 (February 27, 2009). 5 See Antidumping Proceedings: Announcement of Change in Department Practice for Respondent Selection in Antidumping Duty Proceedings and Conditional Review of the Nonmarket Economy Entity in NME Antidumping Duty Proceedings, 78 FR 65963 (November 4, 2013).

Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review. 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 from China entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-specific rate published for the most recently completed period; (2) for all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the China-wide rate of 206.00 percent; and (3) for all nonChinese exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations performed in connection with the final results within five days of its public announcement, or if there is no public announcement, within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). However, because the companies under review either have no reviewable shipments or are part of the China-wide entity, there are no calculations to disclose. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Notification to Importers This notice also 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 6 See Non-Market Economy Antidumping Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 76 FR 65694 (October 24, 2011). VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:16 May 04, 2020 Jkt 250001 antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s 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 return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under the 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 the terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction. Notification to Interested Parties We are issuing and publishing these final results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h). Dated: April 29, 2020.

during the period of review (POR) April 1, 2018 through March 31, 2019. 
Additionally, Commerce continues to determine that the remaining

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On December 30, 2019, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of 
the administrative review of the antidumping duty order on certain 
steel threaded rod from the People's Republic of China (China).\1\ We 
invited parties to submit comments on the Preliminary Results. No party 
submitted comments. Accordingly, the final results remain unchanged 
from the Preliminary Results.

China: Preliminary Results of the Antidumping Duty Administrative 
Review and Preliminary Determination of No Shipments; 2018-2019, 84 
FR 71900 (December 30, 2019) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the order is steel threaded rod. Steel 
threaded rod is certain threaded rod, bar, or studs, of carbon quality 
steel, having a solid, circular cross section, of any diameter, in any 
straight length, that have been forged, turned, cold-drawn, cold-
rolled, machine straightened, or otherwise cold-finished, and into 
which threaded grooves have been applied. In addition, the steel 
threaded rod, bar, or studs subject to the order are non-headed and 
threaded along greater than 25 percent of their total length. A variety 
of finishes or coatings, such as plain oil finish as a temporary rust 
protectant, zinc coating (i.e., galvanized, whether by electroplating 
or hot-dipping), paint, and other similar finishes and coatings, may be 
applied to the merchandise.
    Included in the scope of the order are steel threaded rod, bar, or 
studs, in which: (1) Iron predominates, by weight, over each of the 
other contained elements; (2) the carbon content is 2 percent or less, 
by weight; and (3) none of the elements listed below exceeds the 
quantity, by weight, respectively indicated:
     1.80 percent of manganese, or
     1.50 percent of silicon, or
     1.00 percent of copper, or
     0.50 percent of aluminum, or
     1.25 percent of chromium, or
     0.30 percent of cobalt, or
     0.40 percent of lead, or
     1.25 percent of nickel, or
     0.30 percent of tungsten, or
     0.012 percent of boron, or
     0.10 percent of molybdenum, or
     0.10 percent of niobium, or
     0.41 percent of titanium, or
     0.15 percent of vanadium, or
     0.15 percent of zirconium.
    Steel threaded rod is currently classifiable under subheadings 
7318.15.5051, 7318.15.5056, 7318.15.5090, and 7318.15.2095 of the 
United States Harmonized Tariff Schedule (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS 
subheading is provided for convenience and customs purposes, the 
written description of the merchandise is dispositive.
    Excluded from the scope of the order are: (a) Threaded rod, bar, or 
studs which are threaded only on one or both ends and the threading 
covers 25 percent or less of the total length; and (b) threaded rod, 
bar, or studs made to American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) 
A193 Grade B7, ASTM A193 Grade B7M, ASTM A193 Grade B16, or ASTM A320 
Grade L7.

Final Determination of No Shipments and Status of the China-Wide Entity

    Commerce preliminarily found that Certified Products International 
Inc. (CPI) and RMB Fasteners Ltd. and IFI & Morgan Ltd. (collectively, 
RMB/IFI) had no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States 
during the POR. As noted in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum, we 
received no shipment statements from CPI and RMB/IFI, and these 
statements were consistent with the information we received from U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP).\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \2\ See Preliminary Decision Memorandum at 3-4.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    No party commented on our preliminary no shipment finding with 
respect to CPI and RMB/IFI, and no party submitted record evidence that 
calls this finding into question. Therefore, for these final results, 
we continue to find that CPI and RMB/IFI did not have any shipments of 
subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.
    In addition, we continue to find that the remaining 172 companies 
subject to this administrative review are part of the China-wide entity 
because they failed to file no-shipment statements, separate rate 
applications, or separate rate certifications.\3\ Because no party 
requested a review of the China-wide entity, and we did not self-
initiate a review, the China-wide entity rate (i.e., 206.00 percent) 
\4\ is not subject to change as a result of this review.\5\

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    We have not calculated any assessment rates in this administrative 
review. Based on record evidence, we have determined that CPI and RMI/
IFI had no shipments of subject merchandise and, therefore, pursuant to 
Commerce's assessment practice, any suspended entries that entered 
under

their case numbers will be liquidated at the China-wide entity rate.\6\

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

    For all remaining companies subject to this review, which are part 
of the China-wide entity, we will instruct CBP to liquidate their 
entries at the current rate for the China-wide entity (i.e., 206.00 
percent). Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 
days after the publication date of the final results of this 
administrative review.

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 from China entered, or withdrawn 
from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of 
this notice, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For 
previously investigated or reviewed Chinese and non-Chinese exporters 
that received a separate rate in a prior segment of this proceeding, 
the cash deposit rate will continue to be the existing exporter-
specific rate published for the most recently completed period; (2) for 
all Chinese exporters of subject merchandise that have not been found 
to be entitled to a separate rate, the cash deposit rate will be the 
China-wide rate of 206.00 percent; and (3) for all non-Chinese 
exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own 
rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the Chinese 
exporter that supplied that non-Chinese exporter. These deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to interested parties the calculations 
performed in connection with the final results within five days of its 
public announcement, or if there is no public announcement, within five 
days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.224(b). However, because the companies under review either have 
no reviewable shipments or are part of the China-wide entity, there are 
no calculations to disclose.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's 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 return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under the 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 the 
terms of an APO is a violation subject to sanction.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these final results in accordance 
with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

    Dated: April 29, 2020.
