Background

On September 5, 2019, Commerce published in the Federal Register the final results of the changed circumstances review (CCR Final Results) of the antidumping duty order [1] on certain hot-rolled steel flat products from Japan.[2] As a result of the CCR, we determined that NSC was the successor-in-interest to Nippon Steel & Sumitomo Metal Corporation (NSSMC).[3] In the Federal Register notice, we inadvertently stated that the cash deposit rate in effect for NSC on the date the CCR Final Results were published was NSSMC's antidumping duty cash-deposit rate from the underlying investigation (4.99 percent). However, the actual rate in effect for NSC on the date the CCR Final Results were published was NSSMC's rate from the final results of the first administrative review (7.64 percent), published on June 28, 2019, which superseded the 4.99 percent investigation rate.[4] Therefore, we are correcting the CCR Final Results. This notice serves to correct the NSC rate listed in the CCR Final Results from 4.99 percent to 7.64 percent. No other changes have been made to the CCR Final Results.

Commerce is issuing and publishing these final results and notice in accordance with sections 751(b)(1) and (4) and 777(i) of the Act, and sections 19 CFR 351.216 and 351.221(c)(3)(i).
