SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background This review covers one producer/ exporter of the subject merchandise, Villares Metals S.A. (Villares). When the review was initiated, the period of review (POR) was February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018. However, on October 3, 2018, as a result of a five-year (sunset) review, Commerce revoked the antidumping duty order on imports of stainless steel bar (SSB) from Brazil, effective August 9, 2017. As a result, the POR was revised to February 1, 2017, through August 8, 2017.1 Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is SSB. The SSB subject to the order is currently classifiable under subheadings 7222.10.00, 7222.11.00, 7222.19.00, 7222.20.00, 7222.30.00 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS).

Assessment Rates Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this revised POR. If Villares’ weightedaverage dumping margin continues to be above de minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate importerspecific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of antidumping duties calculated for each importers’ examined sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).7 If Villares’ weighted-average dumping margin is 4 See 19 CFR 351.309(d). 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements). 6 See 19 CFR 351.310(c). 7 In these preliminary results, Commerce 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). 5 See PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 zero or de minimis in the final results of this review, we will instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance with the Final Modification for Reviews.8 For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Villares 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 the intermediate company or companies involved in the transaction. We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements In the Revocation Notice, Commerce stated that it intends to issue instructions to CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to discontinue the collection of cash deposits on entries of subject merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after August 9, 2017.9 Furthermore, because the antidumping duty order on SSB from Brazil has been revoked as a result of the Revocation Notice, Commerce will not issue cash deposit instructions at the conclusion of this administrative review. 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 period of review. 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 these results in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) and 351.221(b)(4). Dated: October 25, 2018.

Public Comment

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c), interested parties may submit case 
briefs not later than 30 days after the date of publication of this 
notice. Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, 
may be filed not later than five days after the date for filing case 
briefs.\4\ 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.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d).
    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.303 (for general filing requirements).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing, or to participate if one is requested, must submit a 
written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and 
Compliance. All documents must be filed electronically using ACCESS, 
which is available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov. An 
electronically filed request must be received successfully in its 
entirety by ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time, within 30 days after the 
date of publication of this notice.\6\ Requests should contain: (1) The 
party's name, address and telephone number; (2) the number of 
participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. Issues raised 
in the hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case

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

    \6\ See 19 CFR 351.310(c).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative 
review, including the results of its analysis of the issues raised in 
any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of 
publication of this notice, unless extended, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.213(h)(1) and (2).

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce shall determine and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this revised POR. If 
Villares' weighted-average dumping margin continues to be above de 
minimis in the final results of this review, we will calculate 
importer-specific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total 
amount of antidumping duties calculated for each importers' examined 
sales and the total entered value of the sales in accordance with 19 
CFR 351.212(b)(1).\7\ If Villares' weighted-average dumping margin is 
zero or de minimis in the final results of this review, we will 
instruct CBP not to assess duties on any of its entries in accordance 
with the Final Modification for Reviews.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ In these preliminary results, Commerce 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).
    \8\ See Final Modification for Reviews, 77 FR at 8102.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by 
Villares 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 the intermediate company or 
companies involved in the transaction.
    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    In the Revocation Notice, Commerce stated that it intends to issue 
instructions to CBP to terminate the suspension of liquidation and to 
discontinue the collection of cash deposits on entries of subject 
merchandise, entered or withdrawn from warehouse, on or after August 9, 
2017.\9\ Furthermore, because the antidumping duty order on SSB from 
Brazil has been revoked as a result of the Revocation Notice, Commerce 
will not issue cash deposit instructions at the conclusion of this 
administrative review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See Revocation Notice, 83 FR 49911.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

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 period of review. 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 these results in accordance with
