Commerce (the ``Department'') and the International Trade Commission

(``ITC''), the Department is issuing an antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the People's Republic of China (``PRC''). On

July 21, 2008, the ITC notified the Department of its affirmative determination of material injury to a U.S. industry. See Certain Steel

Nails from China, Investigation No. 731-TA-1114 (Final), USITC

Publication 4022 (July 2008).

EFFECTIVE DATES: August 1, 2008

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Matthew Renkey or Alex Villanueva, AD/

CVD Operations, Office 9, Import Administration, International Trade

Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

In accordance with sections 735(d) and 777(i)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the ``Act''), on June 16, 2008, the Department published Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China:

Final Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Partial

Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, 73 FR 33977 (June 16, 2008) (``Final Determination'').

Scope of the Order

The merchandise covered by this proceeding includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails include, but are not limited to, nails made of round wire and nails that are cut. Certain steel nails may be of one piece construction or constructed of two or more pieces. Certain steel nails may be produced from any type of steel, and have a variety of finishes, heads, shanks, point types, shaft lengths and shaft diameters. Finishes include, but are not limited to, coating in vinyl, zinc (galvanized, whether by electroplating or hot-dipping one or more times), phosphate cement, and paint. Head styles include, but are not limited to, flat, projection, cupped, oval, brad, headless, double, countersunk, and sinker. Shank styles include, but are not limited to, smooth, barbed, screw threaded, ring shank and fluted shank styles. Screw-threaded nails subject to this proceeding are driven using direct force and not by turning the fastener using a tool that engages with the head. Point styles include, but are not limited to, diamond, blunt, needle, chisel and no point.

Finished nails may be sold in bulk, or they may be collated into strips or coils using materials such as plastic, paper, or wire. Certain steel nails subject to this proceeding are currently classified under the

Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (``HTSUS'') subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75.

Excluded from the scope of this proceeding are roofing nails of all lengths and diameter, whether collated or in bulk, and whether or not galvanized. Steel roofing nails are specifically enumerated and identified in ASTM Standard F 1667 (2005 revision) as Type I, Style 20 nails. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are corrugated nails. A corrugated nail is made of a small strip of corrugated steel with sharp points on one side. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are fasteners suitable for use in powder-actuated hand tools, not threaded and threaded, which are currently classified under

HTSUS 7317.00.20 and 7317.00.30. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are thumb tacks, which are currently classified under HTSUS 7317.00.10.00. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are certain

Page 44962

brads and finish nails that are equal to or less than 0.0720 inches in shank diameter, round or rectangular in cross section, between 0.375 inches and 2.5 inches in length, and that are collated with adhesive or polyester film tape backed with a heat seal adhesive. Also excluded from the scope of this proceeding are fasteners having a case hardness greater than or equal to 50 HRC, a carbon content greater than or equal to 0.5 percent, a round head, a secondary reduced-diameter raised head section, a centered shank, and a smooth symmetrical point, suitable for use in gas-actuated hand tools.

While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of this investigation is dispositive.

Ministerial Error Allegations

On June 16, 2008, ITW \1\ and Xingya Group \2\ filed timely allegations that the Department made certain ministerial errors in the calculation of their respective antidumping duty margins. Petitioners

\3\ made no ministerial error allegations but on June 23, 2008, submitted timely rebuttal comments to ITW's and Xingya Group's allegations. Ministerial errors are defined in section 735(e) of the

Act as ``errors in addition, subtraction, or other arithmetic function, clerical errors resulting from inaccurate copying, duplication, or the like, and any other similar type of unintentional error which the

{Secretary{time} considers ministerial.''

\1\ Illinois Tool Works Inc., Paslode Division (``ITW Paslode'') and Paslode Fasteners (Shanghai) Co., Ltd. (``Paslode Shanghai''),

(collectively, ``ITW'').

\2\ Suzhou Xingya Nail Co., Ltd, Senco-Xingya Metal Products

(Taicang) Co., Ltd., Yunfa International Resources Inc., Senco

Products, Inc. (``Senco''), and Omnifast Inc. (``Omnifast'')

(collectively ``Xingya Group'').

\3\ Petitioners are: Mid Continent Nail Corporation; Davis Wire

Corporation; Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation (Atlas Steel & Wire

Division); Maze Nails (Division of W.H. Maze Company); Treasure

Coast Fasteners, Inc.; and United Steel, Paper and Forestry, Rubber,

Manufacturing, Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers

International Union.

Comment 1: Improper Application of Partial Adverse Facts Available

(``AFA'') for ITW's Indirect Labor

ITW contends that the Department ignored the arguments it submitted in its rebuttal brief, evidencing that ITW properly reported all indirect labor hours. ITW further contends that the Department's Issues and Decision Memorandum (``IDM'') that accompanied the Final

Determination did not reflect an examination of the record evidence it cited in support of its argument, specifically exhibits 18A and 18B of the Department's Paslode Shanghai Verification Report.\4\ ITW concludes that the Department should correct this oversight, including both the margin calculation and the incorrect statements in the IDM.

\4\ See Memorandum to the File through Alex Villanueva, Program

Manager, Office 9, from Nicole Bankhead, Senior Case Analyst:

Verification of the Sales and Factors Response of Paslode Fasteners

(Shanghai) Co., Ltd. in the Antidumping Investigation of Certain

Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China, dated April 15, 2008.

In rebuttal, Petitioners argue that the Department explicitly summarized and noted ITW's arguments and correctly rejected them in weighing the evidence and rendering its decision. Petitioners contend that ITW's allegation is both contrary to the record evidence and does not constitute a ministerial error within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.224. Petitioners conclude that the Department's determination was deliberate and reflects a decision based on the record evidence and argument.

Analysis

We disagree with ITW that we made a ministerial error in applying partial AFA to its indirect labor factor of production (``FOP''). ITW's disagreement with our application of partial AFA is methodological, rather than ministerial, in nature. We affirmatively addressed this issue, including ITW's arguments, in Comment 20F of our IDM and explained that the record supported our finding that ITW failed to account for certain indirect labor workers in its FOP data.

Comment 2: Improper Exclusion of Indian Imports of North Korean

Merchandise for Three Surrogate Values

Xingya Group argues that the Department improperly excluded Indian imports of North Korean merchandise from the calculation of the surrogate values for three FOPs (collating copper-plated wire, collating stainless steel wire, and ink). Xingya Group states that it is the Department's normal policy to include data from countries such as North Korea for which it has not made a determination as to their non-market economy (``NME'') status. Xingya Group cites to the final determination of the PRC Furniture investigation, where the Department included Indian imports of plywood from Myanmar, even though respondents alleged it was a NME. See Final Determination of Sales at

Less than Fair Value: Wooden Bedroom Furniture from the People's

Republic of China, 69 FR 67313 (November 17, 2004), and accompanying

Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 70 (``PRC Furniture'').

In rebuttal, Petitioners contend that the Department correctly excluded the Indian imports of North Korean merchandise. Petitioners note that in PRC Furniture, the Department's ultimate decision did not require addressing Myanmar's status as an NME country. Petitioners further note that the Department has more recent, direct precedent with respect to North Korea, citing to Helical Spring Lock Washers from the

People's Republic of China: Final Results of Antidumping Duty

Administrative Review, 73 FR 4175 (January 24, 2008), and accompanying

Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 3 (``Helical Spring Lock

Washers''), ``Consistent with our determination in fish fillets from

Vietnam, we have excluded Indian imports from North Korea from our stainless SWR surrogate value calculation.'' Additionally, Petitioners note that even though there has never been a U.S. antidumping duty case against North Korean imports requiring NME analysis, the Department may determine to exclude a country's trade data as being non-market without a case history. See http://ia/ita.doc.gov/admanual/admanual_ch08.pdf.

Analysis

The Department's decision to exclude Indian imports of North Korean merchandise was also methodological rather than clerical in nature. As the two alleged errors discussed above do not meet the definition of a ministerial error under 19 CFR 351.224(f), we are not issuing an amended final determination.

Antidumping Duty Order

On July 21, 2008, in accordance with section 735(d) of the Act, the

ITC notified the Department of its final determination, pursuant to section 735(b)(1)(A)(i) of the Act, that an industry in the United

States is materially injured by reason of less-than-fair-value imports of subject merchandise from the PRC. Therefore, in accordance with section 736(a)(1) of the Act, the Department will direct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (``CBP'') to assess, upon further instruction by the Department, antidumping duties equal to the amount by which the normal value of the merchandise exceeds the export price (or constructed export price) of the merchandise for all relevant entries of certain steel nails from the PRC. These antidumping duties will be assessed on all unliquidated entries of certain steel nails from the

PRC entered, or withdrawn from the warehouse, for consumption on or after January 23, 2008, the date on which the Department

Page 44963

published its preliminary determination. See Certain Steel Nails from the People's Republic of China: Preliminary Determination of Sales at

Less Than Fair Value and Partial Affirmative Determination of Critical

Circumstances and Postponement of Final Determination, 73 FR 3928

(January 23, 2008) (``Preliminary Determination'').

The ITC also notified the Department that it made a negative critical circumstances determination in this investigation. Therefore, we will instruct CBP to lift suspension, release any bond or other security, and refund any cash deposit made to secure the payment of antidumping duties with respect to entries of the merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after October 25, 2007, but before January 23, 2008 (i.e., the 90 days prior to the date of publication of the Preliminary Determination).

Effective on the date of publication of the ITC's final affirmative injury determination, CBP will require, at the same time as importers would normally deposit estimated duties on this merchandise, a cash deposit equal to the estimated weighted-average antidumping duty margins as listed below. See section 735(c)(3) of the Act. The ``PRC- wide'' rate applies to all exporters of subject merchandise not specifically listed. The weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:
