The Department intends to publish the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues addressed in any case or rebuttal brief, no later than 120 days after publication of the preliminary results, unless extended.12 Assessment Rates Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). 19 CFR 351.309(d)(1) and (2). 5 See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(2) and (d)(2). 6 See generally 19 CFR 351.303. 7 See 19 CFR 351.303(f). 8 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 9 See 19 CFR 351.310(d)(1). 10 See generally 19 CFR 351.303. 11 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 12 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act; 19 CFR 351.213(h). entries.13 If Toyo Kohan’s weightedaverage dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate importerspecific assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for an importer’s examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If Toyo Kohan’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews, i.e., ‘‘{w}here the weighted-average margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.’’ 14 The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable. For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Toyo Kohan for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction. The all-others rate is 45.42 percent.15 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Toyo Kohan will be that established in the final results of this administrative review (except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will be required); (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of this 3 See 4 See PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 13 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).

Notification to Importers This notice also 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 review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Department’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On April 28, 2015, the Department of Commerce (the Department) initiated countervailing duty (CVD) investigations of imports of certain carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate (CTL plate) from Brazil, the People’s Republic of China (PRC), and the Republic of Korea (Korea).1 The notice of initiation stated that, in accordance with section 703(b)(l) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(b)(1), we would issue our preliminary determinations no later than 65 days after the date of initiation, unless postponed. Currently, the preliminary determinations in these investigations are due no later than July 5, 2016.2 1 See Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-to-Length Plate from Brazil, the People’s Republic of China, and the Republic of Korea: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigations, 81 FR 27098 (May 5, 2016). This notice of postponement of preliminary determinations applies to the PRC and Korea only, as the International Trade Commission terminated the investigation of allegedly subsidized imports of certain carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Brazil, pursuant to section 703(a)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). See Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-To-Length Plate From Austria, Belgium, Brazil, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Korea, South Africa, Taiwan, and Turkey; Determinations, 81 FR 33705 (May 27, 2016). 2 See Initiation Notice, 81 FR at 27101.

Under this section of the Act, the Department may postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. The Department determines that the parties involved in these CTL plate CVD investigations are currently cooperating and that the investigations are extraordinarily complicated, such that we will need more time to make the preliminary determinations. Specifically, the Department finds that these investigations are both extraordinarily complicated by reason of the number and complexity of the alleged countervailable subsidy practices, and the need to determine the extent to which particular countervailable subsidies are used by individual manufacturers, producers, and exporters. Therefore, in accordance with section 703(c)(l)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(l), the Department is postponing the time period for the preliminary determinations of these investigations by 65 days, to September 6, 2016.3 Pursuant to section 705(a)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(1), the deadline for the final determinations will continue to be 75 days after the date of the preliminary determinations.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall 
determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\13\ If Toyo Kohan's 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific assessment 
rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of antidumping 
duties calculated for an importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of such sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If 
Toyo Kohan's weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in 
the final results of review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties 
on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for 
Reviews, i.e., ``{w{time} here the weighted-average margin of dumping 
for the exporter is determined to be zero or de minimis, no antidumping 
duties will be assessed.'' \14\ The final results of this review shall 
be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on entries of 
merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future 
deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14,

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Toyo 
Kohan for which it did not know its merchandise was destined for the 
United States, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction. The all-others rate is 45.42 percent.\15\ 
We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review for all 
shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the 
final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 
751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Toyo Kohan will 
be that established in the final results of this administrative review 
(except, if the rate is zero or de minimis, no cash deposit will be 
required); (2) for merchandise exported by manufacturers or exporters 
not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of this

[[Page 39629]]

proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recent period; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or in the less-
than-fair value investigation but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recent period for the 
manufacturer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all 
other manufacturers or exporters will continue to be the all-others 
rate of 45.42 percent, which is the all-others rate established in the 
investigation.\16\ These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1).

    Dated: June 6, 2016.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
