Christian Marsh, Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance. sustained Commerce’s final redetermination.6 Timken Notice In its decision in Timken,7 as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,8 the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to sections 516A(c) 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 August 20, 2021, judgment constitutes a final decision of the CIT that is not in harmony with Commerce’s Final Determination. Thus, this notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Amended Final Determination Because there is now a final court judgment, Commerce is amending its Final Determination as follows: Company Echjay Forgings Private Limited ....................... All Others ...................... Dumping margin (%) 4.58 11.87 Cash deposit rate (%) 9 0.00 10 7.00 Cash Deposit Requirements Because there is a superseding cash deposit rate, i.e., there have been final results published in a subsequent administrative review,11 we will not issue revised cash deposit instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) for Echjay. Commerce will issue revised all-others cash deposit instructions to CBP. Notification to Interested Parties jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(c) and (e) and 777(i)(1) of the Act. 6 See Echjay Forgings Private Limited v. United States, Consol. Court No. 18–00230, Slip. Op. 21– 105 (CIT August 20, 2021). 7 See Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken). 8 See Diamond Sawblades Manufacturers Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010) (Diamond Sawblades). 9 Commerce reduced Echjay’s dumping margin by the ad valorem export subsidy rate (4.87 percent) found in the companion CVD investigation. See Final Determination, 83 FR 40746. 10 We calculated this rate by offsetting the weighted-average margin determined for the ‘‘all others’’ companies of 11.87 percent by the export subsidies rate (4.87 percent) found in the companion CVD investigation. 11 See Stainless Steel Flanges from India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2018–2019, 86 FR 47619 (August 26, 2021).
