Commerce calculated a weightedaverage dumping margin of 0.00 USD/kg for Datong Juqiang and a weightedaverage dumping margin of 0.23 USD/kg for Carbon Activated, and assigned GHC a separate rate of 0.23 USD/kg.3 Carbon Activated, Datong Juqiang, and GHC (collectively, the Respondents) appealed Commerce’s Final Results/ Amended Final Results. On May 13, 2020, the CIT remanded the Final Results/Amended Final Results to Commerce, and directed Commerce to reconsider Commerce’s determination to include the imports from France and Japan in the Thai import data used to value the mandatory respondents’ (i.e., Carbon Activated and Datong Juqiang) carbonized material input, and also to reconsider Commerce’s adjustments to the surrogate financial ratios.4 In its first remand redetermination, issued in August 2020, Commerce (1) reconsidered and further explained Commerce’s determination to include the French and Japanese import data in the Thai import data used to value carbonized material in the Final Results; and (2) reconsidered and further explained Commerce’s allocation of certain line items in valuing financial ratios using the 2016 financial statements from the Romanian company, Romcarbon SA (Romcarbon).5 Specifically, Commerce excluded the imports from Japan from the Thai import data and continued to include the imports from France. In addition, Commerce made necessary changes in the allocation of certain line items in calculating the financial ratios using the 2016 financial statements from Romcarbon. Accordingly, Commerce made changes to the margin calculations for the mandatory respondents and revised the separate rate for GHC.6 On December 21, 2020, the CIT remanded 2 Id. 3 See Certain Activated Carbon from the People’s Republic of China: Amended Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016– 2017, 83 FR 58229 (November 19, 2018) (Amended Final Results). 4 See Calgon Carbon Corporation et al. v.

Accordingly, Commerce made necessary changes to the margin calculations for the mandatory respondents and revised the separate rate for GHC.8 The CIT sustained Commerce’s final redetermination.9 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,10 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,11 the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to section 516A(a) and (e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce must publish a notice of court decision that is not ‘‘in harmony’’ with a Commerce determination and must suspend liquidation of entries pending a ‘‘conclusive’’ court decision. The CIT’s May 11, 2021 judgment constitutes a final decision of the CIT that is not in harmony with Commerce’s Final Results/Amended Final Results. Thus, this notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirement of Timken. Amended Final Results Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce amends the Final Results and Amended Final Results with respect to Carbon Activated and GHC as follows: 12 7 See Calgon Carbon Corporation et al. v. United States, 487 F. Supp. 3d 1359 (CIT 2020). 8 See Final Results of Redetermination Pursuant to Court Remand, Calgon Carbon Corporation et al. v. United States, Consol.

Commerce notes that although Datong Juqiang participated in the litigation, in the Second Final Results of Redetermination, subsequently sustained by the CIT, Datong Juqiang’s rate remained unchanged from the Amended Final Results at 0.00 USD/kg. 9 See Calgon Carbon Corporation et al. v. United States, Consol. Court No. 18–00232, Slip Op. 21– 58 (CIT May 11, 2021). 10 See Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337, 341 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken). 11 See Diamond Sawblades Mfrs.
