Because the final determination in this proceeding is affirmative, in accordance with section 735(b)(2) of the Act, the ITC will make its final determination as to whether the domestic industry in the United States is materially injured, or threatened with material injury, by reason of imports, or sales (or the likelihood of sales) for importation of PC strand no later than 45 days after our final determination. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does not exist, the proceeding will be terminated, and all cash deposits will be refunded. If the ITC determines that material injury or threat of material injury does exist, Commerce will issue an antidumping duty order directing CBP to assess, upon further instruction by Commerce, antidumping duties on all imports of the subject merchandise, entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the effective date of the suspension of liquidation. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to an administrative protective order (APO) of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3). Timely 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.

Final Results of Review As noted above, Commerce received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, the Preliminary Results, Commerce finds that there is no reason to modify its analysis and calculations. Accordingly, we adopt the analysis and explanation in our Preliminary Results for the purposes of these final results of review and we have not prepared an Issues and Decision Memorandum to accompany this Federal Register notice. The final weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for entries of subject merchandise that were produced and exported by Hyundai Steel Company during the POR. of carbon; (ii) 0.5 percent or more but not more than 1.9 percent of manganese, and (iii) 0.6 percent or more but not more than 2.3 percent of silicon.

Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review in the Federal Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of publication). Because we calculated a zero margin for Hyundai Steel Company in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.8 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of hot-rolled steel from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hyundai Steel Company will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by a company not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published in the completed segment for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the original investigation but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the completed segment for the most recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 6.05 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.9 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Disclosure Normally, Commerce discloses to the parties in a proceeding the calculations 8 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

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 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 doubled 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/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.

Final Results of Review

    As noted above, Commerce received no comments concerning the 
Preliminary Results. As there are no changes from, or comments upon, 
the Preliminary Results, Commerce finds that there is no reason to 
modify its analysis and calculations. Accordingly, we adopt the 
analysis and explanation in our Preliminary Results for the purposes of 
these final results of review and we have not prepared an Issues and 
Decision Memorandum to accompany this Federal Register notice. The 
final weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for 
entries of subject merchandise that were produced and exported by 
Hyundai Steel Company during the POR.

[[Page 18502]]

Assessment Rates

    Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review, in accordance with section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b). Commerce intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP no earlier than 35 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review in the Federal 
Register. If a timely summons is filed at the U.S. Court of 
International Trade, the assessment instructions will direct CBP not to 
liquidate relevant entries until the time for parties to file a request 
for a statutory injunction has expired (i.e., within 90 days of 
publication). Because we calculated a zero margin for Hyundai Steel 
Company in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP 
to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\8\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of these final results for all shipments of 
hot-rolled steel from Korea entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for 
consumption on or after the date of publication as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hyundai Steel 
Company will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by a company not 
covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published in the completed segment for the most recent 
period; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the 
original investigation but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate 
will be the rate established in the completed segment for the most 
recent period for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit 
rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 6.05 
percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value 
investigation.\9\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Disclosure

    Normally, Commerce discloses to the parties in a proceeding the 
calculations performed in connection with a final results of review 
within five days after public announcement of final results.\10\ 
However, because Commerce made no adjustments to the margin calculation 
methodology used in the Preliminary Results, there are no calculations 
to disclose for the final results of review.

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 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 doubled 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/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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
