In the Preliminary Determination, we did not modify the scope language as it appeared in the Initiation Notice.4 No interested party submitted scope comments in case or rebuttal briefs; therefore, the scope of this investigation remains unchanged for this final determination. Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are certain hot-rolled steel flat products from Brazil. For a complete description of the scope of this investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation,’’ attached to this notice at Appendix I. available and, because the Government of Brazil and the respondent companies did not act to the best of their abilities in responding to the Department’s requests for information, we drew an adverse inference where appropriate in selecting from among the facts otherwise available.5 Specifically, we applied facts available, with adverse inferences, for the Reduction of Tax on Industrialized Products for Machines and Equipment, the BNDES FINAME ´ Loan program, and the Ex-Tarifario program, in accordance with section 776(a) and (b) of the Act. For further information, see the section ‘‘Use of Adverse Facts Available’’ in the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the comments received from parties, and the minor corrections presented and additional items discovered at verification, we made certain changes to the respondents’ subsidy rate calculations. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Final Affirmative Determination of Critical Circumstances, in Part Use of Adverse Facts Available In making this final determination, the Department relied, in part, on facts On October 23, 2015, the petitioner filed a timely critical circumstances allegation pursuant to section 703(e)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.206(c)(1), alleging that critical circumstances exist with respect to imports of hot-rolled steel from Brazil.6 We preliminarily determined that critical circumstances existed with respect to CSN and Usiminas, but not for all others companies.7 Based on additional import data that became available since the Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances, we are departing from our preliminary finding. For this final determination, in accordance with section 705(a) of the Act, we find that critical circumstances exist with respect to CSN but that critical circumstances do not exist with respect to Usiminas and all other producers and exporters of Rolled Steel Flat Products from Brazil,’’ dated concurrently with this determination (Issues and Decision Memorandum) and hereby adopted by this notice. 3 See Memorandum to Christian Marsh, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Operations, ‘‘Certain HotRolled Steel Products from Australia, Brazil, Japan, the Netherlands, the Republic of Korea, Turkey and the United Kingdom: Scope Comments Decision Memorandum for the Preliminary Determinations,’’ dated March 14, 2016. 4 See Preliminary Determination PDM at ‘‘Scope Comments.’’ 5 See sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 6 See letter from the Petitioner, ‘‘Certain HotRolled Steel Flat Products From Australia, Brazil, Japan and the Netherlands—Critical Circumstances Allegations,’’ dated October 23, 2015. 7 See Antidumping Duty Investigations of Certain Hot-Rolled Steel Flat Products From Australia, Brazil, Japan, and the Netherlands and Countervailing Duty Investigation of Certain HotRolled Steel Flat Products From Brazil: Preliminary Determinations of Critical Circumstances, 80 FR 76444 (December 9, 2015) (Preliminary Determination of Critical Circumstances).

Preliminary Results of the New Shipper Review

    As a result of this new shipper review, we preliminarily determine 
that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for 
merchandise produced and exported by Joint Stock Company PhosAgro-
Cherepovets for the period July 1, 2014, through June 30, 2015.

Disclosure and Public Comment

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these 
preliminary results to the parties within five days after the date of 
publication of this notice.\4\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), 
interested parties may submit cases briefs not later than 30 days after 
the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, limited to 
issues raised in case briefs, may be filed no later than five days 
after the time limit for filing the case briefs.\5\ Parties who submit

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, must submit a written request to the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, filed electronically via 
ACCESS. An electronically filed document must be received successfully 
in its entirety by the Department's electronic records system, ACCESS, 
by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time within 30 days after the date of publication

issues raised by parties in their comments, within 120 days after the 
publication of these preliminary results, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h).

Assessment Rates

    If a respondent's weighted-average dumping margin is above de 
minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent) in the final results of these reviews, the 
Department will calculate an importer-specific assessment rate on the 
basis of the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for each 
importer's examined sales and, where possible, the total entered value 
of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\8\ If the 
respondent's weighted-average dumping margin continues to be zero or de 
minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct U.S. Customs 
and Border Protection (CBP) not to assess duties on any of its entries 
in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ In these preliminary results, the Department applied the 
assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping 
Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and 
Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for 
Reviews).
    \9\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by MCC 
EuroChem or PhosAgro 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 of 64.93 percent \10\ if 
there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 Secretary's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.
    We are issuing and publishing the preliminary results of these 
reviews in accordance with sections 751(a)(1), 751(a)(2)(B) and 777(i) 
of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213, 351.214 and 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: August 5, 2016.
Ronald K. Lorentzen,
Acting Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
