Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with sections 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Act, Commerce preliminarily 
relied upon the facts otherwise available with adverse inferences (AFA) 
to determine the margin for Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH, Salzgitter 
Mannesmann Grobblech GmbH, Salzgitter Flachstahl GmbH, and Salzgitter 
Mannesmann International GmbH (collectively, Salzgitter), the sole 
remaining mandatory respondent selected for review, because Salzgitter 
did not respond to Commerce's questionnaire in this administrative 
review. For a complete explanation of the methodology and analysis 
underlying our preliminary application of AFA to Salzgitter, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic

Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics 
discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as the 
Appendix to this notice.

Partial Rescission of Review

    On October 22, 2018, the petitioners \2\ withdrew their review 
requests for the following companies: AG der Dillinger H[uuml]ttenwerke 
(Dillinger); Perficon Steel GmbH (Perficon); Reiner Brach GmbH & Co. KG

Steel Europe AG (ThyssenKrupp Steel); ThyssenKrupp Schulte GmbH 
(TyssenKrupp Schulte); UPC Universal Piping GmbH (UPC); and VETTER 
Umformtechnik GmbH (VETTER).\3\ In accordance with 19 CFR 
351.213(d)(1), Commerce is rescinding this review, in part, with 
respect to the following companies: Dillinger, Perficon, Reiner Brach, 
Rudolf Rafflenbeul, Tenova, ThyssenKrupp Steel, ThyssenKrupp Schulte, 
UPC, and VETTER.

value investigation (hereafter, the petitioners)
    \3\ See Letter from the petitioners, ``Carbon and Alloy Steel 
Cut-To-Length Plate from Germany Withdrawal of Request for 
Administrative Review, dated October 22, 2018. The petitioners also 
withdrew their review request for Ilsenburger Grobblech GmbH (ILG). 
However, this company is one of the Salzgitter entities and the 
petitioners specifically indicated their intent to continue the 
review with respect to Salzgitter. Accordingly, we are not 
rescinding the administrative review with respect to ILG.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, Commerce preliminarily determines that 
a dumping margin of 174.03 percent exists for Salzgitter for the period

performed in connection with the preliminary results within five days

351.224(b). However, there are no calculations to disclose in 
connection with these preliminary results because, in accordance with 
section 776 of the Act, Commerce preliminarily applied AFA to 
Salzgitter, the sole mandatory respondent, and Commerce has 
preliminarily determined as the AFA rate the highest dumping margin 
alleged in the Petition.\4\
