SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On July 25, 2016, the Department of Commerce (the Department) published the Antidumping Duty Orders on certain corrosion-resistant steel products from India, Italy, the People's Republic of China (PRC), the Republic of Korea (Korea), and Taiwan.[1] The Antidumping Duty Orders contained unintended errors regarding (1) the estimated weighted-average dumping margins for the PRC and (2) the date that the extended period of provisional measures expired.

Estimated Weighted-Average Dumping Margins for PRC

As stated in the Initiation Notice,[2] the Department calculates combination rates for respondents that are eligible for a separate rate in non-market economy antidumping duty investigations. Policy Bulletin 05.1 describes this practice.[3] While we correctly listed the PRC rates as combination rates in the PRC Final Start Printed Page 58476Determination,[4] we did not list any of the PRC rates as exporter/producer combination rates in the Antidumping Duty Orders.[5]

The PRC weighted-average antidumping duty margins and cash deposit rates, as listed in the Antidumping Duty Orders, should all be corrected to reflect the following exporter/producer combination rates:

ExporterProducerWeighted- average dumping margin (percent)Cash deposit rate (percent)

Union Steel ChinaUnion Steel China209.97199.43
PRC-Wide Entity209.97199.43

Provisional Measures

In the Antidumping Duty Orders, we incorrectly listed the last day of the extended period of provisional measures as July 2, 2016.[6] The correct last day of the extended period of provisional measures is July 1, 2016. Therefore, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act) and our practice, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to liquidate, without regard to antidumping duties, unliquidated entries of certain corrosion-resistant steel products from India, Italy, Korea, and the PRC [7] entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after July 2, 2016, the date on which the provisional measure period expired, until and through the day preceding the date of publication of the International Trade Commission's final injury determinations in the Federal Register.

We are now correcting the Antidumping Duty Orders for India, Italy, the PRC, Korea, and Taiwan, as noted above.

These corrections to the Antidumping Duty Orders for India, Italy, the PRC, Korea, and Taiwan are published in accordance with sections 777(i)(1) of the Act.

7.  In the Antidumping Duty Orders, we inadvertently stated that (1) antidumping duties will be assessed on unliquidated entries of certain corrosion-resistant steel products from Taiwan entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after January 4, 2016, the date of publication of the preliminary determination, and (2) the last day of the extended period of provisional measures for Taiwan was July 2, 2016. These are both incorrect. Because Taiwan had a negative preliminary determination, the provisional measures period did not expire for Taiwan. See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Negative Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 81 FR 72 (January 4, 2016). Thus, we began to suspend liquidation of all entries of certain corrosion-resistant steel products from Taiwan on June 2, 2016, the date of publication of Taiwan Final Determination. See Certain Corrosion-Resistant Steel Products from Taiwan: Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part, 81 FR 35313 (June 2, 2016) (Taiwan Final Determination).
