Rates for Non-Examined Companies The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weightedaverage dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.‘‘ In this review, we have preliminarily calculated weighted-average dumping margins for Hyundai and POSCO/PDW that are not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available. Accordingly, we have preliminarily assigned to the company not individually examined (i.e., Hyundai Glovis Co., Ltd.) a margin of 11.68 percent, which is the weighted average of Hyundai and POSCO/PDW calculated weighted-average dumping margins.3 khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Partial Rescission of Review On February 14, 2018, the petitioners 4 timely withdrew their review requests for certain companies.5 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), 3 For more information regarding the calculation of this margin, see Memorandum, ‘‘Calculation of the Margin for Non-Examined Companies,’’ dated October 3, 2018.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit case briefs no later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice. Rebuttal briefs, the content of which is limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed no later than five days after the date for filing case briefs.6 Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.7 Case and rebuttal briefs should be filed using ACCESS 8 and must be served on interested parties.9 Executive summaries should be limited to five pages total, including footnotes.

Issues raised in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case and rebuttal briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, at a date and time to be determined.11 Parties should confirm the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date. Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of the issues raised in any case or rebuttal briefs, no later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless extended.12 Assessment Rates Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review and the respondent reported reliable entered values, we will calculate importerspecific ad valorem assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made during the period of review to each importer and the total entered value of those same sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent has not reported reliable entered values, we will calculate a per-unit assessment rate for each importer by dividing the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made to that importer by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions. Where an importerspecific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in 10 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 19 CFR 351.310(d). 12 See section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h). 11 See E:\FR\FM\12OCN1.SGM 12OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 198 / Friday, October 12, 2018 / Notices accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent’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.’’ 13 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Hyundai and POSCO/PDW for which the producer did not know its merchandise was destined for the United States, or for any respondent for which we have a final determination of no shipments, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company (or companies) involved in the transaction.14 Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of the notice of final results of this administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for Hyundai, POSCO/PDW, and other companies listed in the final results of review will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which they were reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review or the original investigation but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 20.33 percent,15 the all- khammond on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES 13 See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 2012) (Final Modification for Reviews). 14 See Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 15 See Certain Cold Rolled Steel Flat Products from Brazil, India, the Republic of Korea, and the United Kingdom: Amended Final Affirmative Antidumping Determinations for Brazil and the VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:19 Oct 11, 2018 Jkt 247001 others rate established in the less-thanfair-value investigation.

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 POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

[[Page 51662]]

value is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a 
full description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Rates for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for 
individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an 
administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. 
Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which 
provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market 
economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for 
companies which were not selected for individual examination in an 
administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-
others rate is normally ``an amount equal to the weighted average of 
the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for 
exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero 
or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the 
basis of facts available{time} .``
    In this review, we have preliminarily calculated weighted-average 
dumping margins for Hyundai and POSCO/PDW that are not zero, de 
minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available. 
Accordingly, we have preliminarily assigned to the company not 
individually examined (i.e., Hyundai Glovis Co., Ltd.) a margin of 
11.68 percent, which is the weighted average of Hyundai and POSCO/PDW 
calculated weighted-average dumping margins.\3\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \3\ For more information regarding the calculation of this 
margin, see Memorandum, ``Calculation of the Margin for Non-Examined 
Companies,'' dated October 3, 2018. As the weighting factor, we 
relied on the publicly ranged sales data reported in Hyundai and 
POSCO/PDW quantity and value charts.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Partial Rescission of Review

    On February 14, 2018, the petitioners \4\ timely withdrew their 
review requests for certain companies.\5\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an administrative review, in whole 
or in part, if the party that requested the review withdraws its 
request within 90 days of the date of publication of the notice of 
initiation of the requested review. Accordingly, we are rescinding this 
review with respect to the companies for which all review requests have 
been withdrawn. For a full description of the methodology and rationale 
underlying our conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative

any case or rebuttal briefs, no later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, unless extended.\12\

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. We intend to issue 
liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final 
results of this review.
    For any individually examined respondent whose weighted-average 
dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) 
in the final results of this review and the respondent reported 
reliable entered values, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
assessment rates for the merchandise based on the ratio of the total 
amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales made during the 
period of review to each importer and the total entered value of those 
same sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). If the respondent 
has not reported reliable entered values, we will calculate a per-unit 
assessment rate for each importer by dividing the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales made to that importer by the 
total sales quantity associated with those transactions. Where an 
importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis in 
the final results of review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties in

[[Page 51663]]

accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent'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.'' \13\

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Hyundai and POSCO/PDW for which the producer did not know its 
merchandise was destined for the United States, or for any respondent 
for which we have a final determination of no shipments, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate if 
there is no rate for the intermediate company (or companies) involved 
in the transaction.\14\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Hyundai, POSCO/PDW, and other companies listed in 
the final results of review will be equal to the weighted-average 
dumping margin established in the final results of this administrative 
review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not 
covered in this review but covered in a prior segment of the 
proceeding, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-
specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this 
proceeding in which they were reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review or the original investigation but the 
producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the 
most recently completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of 
the merchandise; (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be 20.33 percent,\15\ the all-others rate 
established in the less-than-fair-value investigation. These cash 
deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.

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 POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    Commerce is issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: October 3, 2018.
Gary Taverman,
Deputy Assistant Secretary for Antidumping and Countervailing Duty 
Operations, performing the non-exclusive functions and duties of the 
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
