The Department of Commerce (Commerce) is notifying the public that the final judgment in this case is not in harmony with the Final Determination and Order of the investigation and that Commerce is amending the Final Determination and Order with respect to the CVD cash deposit rate assigned to JSW Steel Limited and JSW Steel Coated Products Limited (collectively JSW).

On June 2, 2016, Commerce published its Final Determination in the CVD investigation of CORE from India.
Commerce issued an Amended Final Determination explaining its critical circumstances analysis, on June 14, 2016.
Commerce published the countervailing duty order resulting from the investigation on July 25, 2016.
On May 9, 2018, the CIT remanded the Final Determination to Commerce.
Specifically, the CIT remanded the Final Determination directing Commerce to recalculate JSW's CVD rate without regard to JSW Steel (Salav) Limited (Salav), a cross-owned input supplier.
On August 7, 2018, Commerce issued its final results of redetermination pursuant to remand in accordance with the CIT's order.
On remand, Commerce, under respectful protest,
recalculated JSW's CVD rate without regard to Salav, and also recalculated the “all-others” rate. On October 23, 2018, the CIT sustained Commerce's Final Redetermination.
The effective date of this notice is November 2, 2018.
In its decision in Timken,
as clarified by Diamond Sawblades,
the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC) held that, pursuant to section 516A 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 affirming the Final Redetermination constitutes a final decision of the Court that is not in harmony with Commerce's Final Determination and Order. This notice is published in fulfillment of the publication requirements of Timken and section 516A of the Act.
Amended Final Determination
Because there is now a final court decision, Commerce is amending its Final Determination and Order. Commerce finds that the revised countervailable subsidy rate for JSW and the revised “all-others” rate are as follows:Start Printed Page 55697
|Producer/exporter||Net subsidy rate (percent)|
|JSW Steel Limited and JSW Steel Coated Products Limited||4.24|
Cash Deposit Requirements
Because JSW does not have a superseding cash deposit rate, i.e., there have been no final results published in subsequent administrative reviews for JSW, Commerce will issue revised cash deposit instructions to CBP. Commerce will also instruct CBP to collect cash deposits for companies covered by the “all-others” cash deposit rate according to the table above.
Notification to Interested Parties
This notice is issued and published in accordance with sections 516A(c)(1) and (e), 705(c)(1)(B), and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
