• The normal value that was compared to U.S. price was calculated using certain factors of production that were reported on a per-kilogram basis while U.S. price was reported on a per-piece basis. In the final results, we corrected the dumping analysis to accurately reflect GGB's reported consumption of its inputs on a per-piece basis.
• We used the incorrect variable name for the entered value of the TRBs sold by GGB during the POR. In the final results, we corrected the variable name in the margin program to accurately reflect the reported variable name for entered value and corrected the assessment rate programming language.
• GGB reported a steel scrap by-product. We intended to grant an offset for this byproduct but made a clerical error in the

The Department has determined that the following weighted-average dumping margin exists for GGB for the period June 1, 2010, through May 31, 2011:
The Department will disclose the calculations performed for these final results to the parties within five days of the date of publication of this notice in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).
Upon issuance of the final results, the Department will determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review. The Department intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the publication date of the final results of this review. Because GGB's weighted-average dumping margin is above
Consistent with Departmental practice in new shipper reviews, the Department has established a combination cash deposit rate for GGB as described below. The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this NSR for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided for by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (“the Act”): (1) For subject merchandise exported and produced by GGB, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established in the final results of this review; (2) for subject merchandise exported by GGB but not produced by GGB, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 92.84 percent; (3) for subject merchandise produced by GGB but not exported by GGB, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the exporter; (4) for other previously investigated or reviewed PRC and non-PRC exporters that have separate rates, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding; (5) for all other PRC exporters of subject merchandise, the cash deposit rate will be the PRC-wide rate of 92.84 percent; and (6) for all non-PRC exporters of subject merchandise which have not received their own rate, the cash deposit rate will be the rate applicable to the PRC exporter(s) that supplied that non-PRC exporter. These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.
This notice serves as a reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary's presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.
The Department is issuing and publishing this determination in accordance with sections 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.214(h) and 351.221(b)(4).
