On June 8, 2015, Commerce published the Final Results, in which we valued cores produced by Weihai Xiangguang Mechanical Industrial Co., Ltd., using a build-up methodology and calculated surrogate financial ratios using Philippine financial statements.
On Start Printed Page 55521March 31, 2017, the CIT remanded the Final Results to Commerce to reconsider the valuation of cores and the use of certain financial statements.
In the first final remand redetermination, we revised the valuation of cores and used other available financial statements to calculate surrogate financial ratios.
On March 22, 2018, the CIT remanded the Final Results to further examine the revisions to the valuation of cores and our decision not to use certain financial statements in the first final remand redetermination.
In the second final remand redetermination, we further revised the valuation of cores and we used additional financial statements to calculate surrogate financial ratios.
On October 23, 2018, the CIT sustained our second final remand redetermination in its entirety.
In its decision in Timken Co. v. United States, 893 F.2d 337, 341 (Fed. Cir. 1990) (Timken), as clarified by Diamond Sawblades Mfrs. Coalition v. United States, 626 F.3d 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2010), the United States Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit held that, pursuant to section 516A(e) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), Commerce must publish a notice of a 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 October 23, 2018, final judgment sustaining the second final remand redetermination constitutes the CIT's final decision which is not “in harmony” with the Final Results. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken. Accordingly, Commerce will continue the suspension of liquidation of the subject merchandise pending expiration of the period to appeal or, if appealed, pending a final and conclusive court decision.

Cash Deposit Requirements
As the cash deposit rates for Danyang City Ou Di Ma Tools Co., Ltd., and Danyang Tsunda Diamond Tools Co., Ltd., have not been subject to subsequent administrative reviews, Commerce will issue revised cash deposit instructions to CBP adjusting the rate from 2.34 percent to 12.05 percent, effective November 2, 2018. For all other respondents listed above, because the cash deposit rates have been updated in subsequent administrative reviews,
we will not update their cash deposit rates as a result of these amended final results.
