Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. (Dongbu Steel) and Dongbu Incheon Steel Co., 
Ltd. (Dongbu Incheon) for purposes of determining antidumping duty (AD) 
cash deposits and liabilities pursuant to the AD orders on certain 
cold-rolled steel flat products (cold-rolled steel) and certain

(Korea). Additionally, Commerce continues to find KG Dongbu Steel is 
not the successor-in-interest to Dongbu Steel and Dongbu Incheon for 
purposes of countervailing duty (CVD) cash deposits and liabilities 
pursuant to the CVD orders on cold-rolled steel and CORE, because there 
was a significant change in ownership and operations that could have

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On January 5, 2021, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of 
the changed circumstances reviews (CCRs) of the AD and CVD orders on 
cold-rolled steel and CORE from Korea.\1\ In the Preliminary Results, 
interested parties were provided an opportunity to comment and request 
a public hearing regarding our preliminary findings. We received no 
comments from interested parties, nor was a public hearing requested.

Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from the Republic of Korea: Final 
Results of Antidumping Duty and Countervailing Duty Changed

Results).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Orders

    The products covered by these CCRs are cold-rolled steel and CORE 
from Korea. For full descriptions of the scope of the orders, see the 
Preliminary Results and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Final Results of the Changed Circumstances Reviews

    For the reasons stated in the Preliminary Results, and because we 
received no comments from interested parties, Commerce continues to 
find that KG Dongbu Steel is the successor-in-interest to Dongbu Steel 
and Dongbu Incheon for AD purposes. As a result of this determination, 
we find it appropriate to apply to KG Dongbu Steel AD cash deposits 
requirements and liabilities at the rates currently in effect for 
Dongbu Steel/Dongbu Incheon. For CVD purposes, we continue to find that 
changes in ownership and management were significant and, thus, that it 
is not appropriate to apply the CVD cash deposit requirements and 
liabilities currently in effect for Dongbu Steel/Dongbu Incheon to KG 
Dongbu Steel.
    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to 
suspend liquidation of all shipments of subject merchandise produced or 
exported by KG Dongbu Steel and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the 
Federal Register at the current antidumping duty cash-deposit rate on 
cold-rolled steel and CORE in effect for Dongbu Steel/Dongbu Incheon. 
This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further 
notice.
