Alexis Polovina, Timothy Lord, or Ricardo Martinez Rivera, Office 9, AD/CVD Operations, Import Administration, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-3927, (202) 482-7425, and (202) 482-4532, respectively.

Background Back to Top

On August 2, 2010, the Department published a notice of opportunity to request an administrative review on the antidumping order on certain steel nails from the People's Republic of China (“PRC”) for the period of review (“POR”) August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010. See Antidumping or Countervailing Duty Order, Finding, or Suspended Investigation; Opportunity To Request Administrative Review, 75 FR 45094 (August 2, 2010). Based upon requests for review from various parties, on September 29, 2010, the Department initiated the first antidumping duty administrative review on certain steel nails from the PRC, covering 222 companies. See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews and Request for Revocation in Part, 75 FR 60076 (September 29, 2010) (“Initiation Notice”).

Statutory Time Limits Back to Top

Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“Act”), requires the Department to make a preliminary determination within 245 days after the last day of the anniversary month of an order for which a review is requested and a final determination within 120 days after the date on which the preliminary results are published. However, if it is not practicable to complete the review within these time periods, section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act allows the Department to extend the time limit for the preliminary determination to a maximum of 365 days after the last day of the anniversary month.

Extension of Time Limit for Preliminary Results of Review Back to Top

We determine that it is not practicable to complete the preliminary results of this review within the original time limit because the Department requires additional time to analyze the supplemental questionnaire responses. Further, the Department has provided parties additional time to submit surrogate value data and thus will require additional time to analyze these data. Therefore, the Department is extending the time limit for completion of the preliminary results by 90 days. The preliminary results will now be due no later than August 1, 2011. The final results continue to be due 120 days after the publication of the preliminary results.

Partial Rescission of Review Back to Top

19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), states that if a party that requested an administrative review withdraws the request within 90 days of the publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review, the Secretary will rescind the review.

On December 23, 2010, Jisco Corporation and Qingdao Jisco Co., Ltd. withdrew their requests for an administrative review.

Assessment Rates Back to Top

The Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (“CBP”) to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. For those companies for which this review has been rescinded and which have a separate rate from a prior segment of this proceeding, antidumping duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(c)(2). Accordingly, the Department intends to issue appropriate assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice for the following companies: 1) Beijing Hongsheng Metal Products Co., Ltd.; 2) Cana (Tianjin) Hardware Ind., Co., Ltd.; 3) Guangdong Foreign Trade Import Export Corporation; 4) Hebei Cangzhou New Century Foreign Trade Co., Ltd.; 5) Huanghua Jinhai Metal Products Co., Ltd.; 6) Jisco Corporation; 7) Mingguang Abundant Hardware Products Co., Ltd.; 8) Qingdao Jisco Co., Ltd.; 9) SDC International Australia Pty., Ltd.; 10) Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Group Co., Ltd.; 11) Shandong Oriental Cherry Hardware Import and Export Co., Ltd.; 12) Shanxi Hairui Trade Co., Ltd.; 13) Shanxi Pioneer Hardware Industrial Co., Ltd.; 14) S-Mart (Tianjin) Technology Development Co., Ltd.; 15) Suntec Industries Co., Ltd.; 16) Tianjin Xiantong Material Trade Co., Ltd; 17) Union Enterprise (Kushan) Co., Ltd.; 18) Wuhu Shijie Hardware Co., Ltd.; 19) Wuhu Xin Lan De Industrial Co., Ltd.; 20) Xi'an Metals Minerals Import and Export Co., Ltd.; and 21) Zhaoqing Harvest Nails Co., Ltd.

For those companies list above which have not previously been assigned a separate rate from a prior segment of the proceeding, this administrative review will continue. The Department cannot order liquidation for companies which, although they are no longer under review as a separate entity, may still be under review as part of the PRC-wide entity. In this case, the Department cannot order liquidation for certain companies that do not currently have a separate rate, as an exporter, from either the investigation or previous administrative or new shipper reviews.

Notification to Importers Back to Top

This notice serves as a final reminder to importers for whom this review is being rescinded, as of the publication date of this notice, 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 the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of the antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

This notice is issued and published in accordance with section 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(d)(4).

Dated: April 22, 2011.

Gary Taverman,

Acting Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations.
