As a result of these sunset reviews, the Department of Commerce (Commerce) finds that revocation of the antidumping duty orders on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, the People's Republic of China (China), Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of dumping. The magnitude of the dumping margins likely to prevail are indicated in the “Final Results of Sunset Review” section of this notice.

In 2001, Commerce published in the Federal Register the AD Orders with respect to certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine.
On December 5, 2006 and February 7, 2014, Commerce published notices of continuation of these AD Orders.
On February 5, 2019, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the third sunset reviews of the AD Orders on certain hot-rolled carbon steel flat products from India, Indonesia, China, Taiwan, Thailand, and Ukraine.
On March 7, 2019, Commerce received complete substantive responses to the notices of initiation from Nucor Corporation; AK Steel Corporation; ArcelorMittal USA LLC; United States Steel Corporation; California Steel Industries; SSAB Enterprises LLC; and Steel Dynamics, Inc. (collectively, the domestic interested parties) within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i). The domestic interested parties claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as manufacturers, producers, or wholesalers of a domestic like product in the United States. Commerce received comments from the Government of Ukraine,
but received no substantive responses from any other interested parties. As a result, Commerce conducted an expedited, i.e., 120-day, sunset review of these AD Orders pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2).
Scope of the Orders
