SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) determines that Hyosung Corporation (Hyosung) and Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. and Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems Co. (collectively, Hyundai) made sales of large power transformers from the Republic of Korea (Korea) at less than normal value during the period of review (POR) August 1, 2016, through July 31, 2017.

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http:// enforcement.trade.gov/frn/index.html. The signed and electronic versions of the Issues and Decision Memorandum are identical in content. Commerce exercised its discretion to toll all deadlines affected by the partial federal government closure from December 22, 2018, through the resumption of operations on January 29, 2019.3 If the new deadline falls on a non-business day, in accordance with Commerce’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day. The revised deadline for the final results of this review is now April 12, 2019. Scope of the Order The scope of this order covers large liquid dielectric power transformers (LPTs) having a top power handling capacity greater than or equal to 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether assembled or unassembled, complete or incomplete. The merchandise subject to the order is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States at subheadings 8504.23.0040, 8504.23.0080, and 8504.90.9540. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.

All deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 40 days. E:\FR\FM\19APN1.SGM 19APN1 16462 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 76 / Friday, April 19, 2019 / Notices Changes Since the Preliminary Results Commerce has made no changes to the Preliminary Results with respect to Hyundai. As stated in the Preliminary Results, we found that the application of total facts otherwise available with adverse inferences to Hyundai’s weighted-average dumping margin, pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the Act), was warranted. Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for Hyosung. For Hyosung, Commerce has relied on partial adverse facts available under section 776(a)(1) of the Act with respect to general and administrative (G&A) expenses, indirect selling expenses, and document acceptance charges. As a result of these changes, the weightedaverage dumping margin also changes for the three companies not selected for individual examination. Final Results of the Review The final weighted-average dumping margins are as follows: Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Producer or exporter Hyosung Corporation ............................ Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd./ Hyundai Electric & Energy Systems Co., Ltd .............................................. Iljin Electric Co., Ltd .............................. Iljin ......................................................... LSIS Co., Ltd ......................................... 15.74 60.81 15.74 15.74 15.74 khammond on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Disclosure We will disclose the calculations performed to parties in this proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Rate The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.4 For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales to the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 4 In these final 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 Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:23 Apr 18, 2019 Jkt 247001 351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), the Department will issue instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or customer)specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the amount of dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we will apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importer’s/customer’s entries during the POR. With regard to Hyosung, as explained in our Issues and Decision Memorandum, we find that Hyosung has provided sufficient evidence, based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce’s successor-in-interest criteria, to demonstrate that Hyosung Heavy Industries Corporation (HIIC) is the successor-in-interest to Hyosung. After the publication of these final results, we intend to issue liquidation instructions covering entries made by Hyosung during the POR at the rate established in these final results. We intend to issue assessment instructions directly 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 this notice for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication of these final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents noted above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by producers or exporters not covered in this administrative 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 22.00 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.5 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. As explained above, we find that Hyosung has provided sufficient evidence, based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce’s successor-in-interest criteria, to demonstrate that HIIC is the successorin-interest to Hyosung. Accordingly, effective the date of publication of these final results, we intend to instruct CBP to begin collecting deposits from HHIC at the rate assigned to Hyosung pursuant to these final results. Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties did occur and the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties. Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an APO is a sanctionable violation. Notification to Interested Parties We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 5 See Large Power Transformers from the Republic of Korea: Antidumping Duty Order, 77 FR 53177 (August 31, 2012).

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Commerce has made no changes to the Preliminary Results with 
respect to Hyundai. As stated in the Preliminary Results, we found that 
the application of total facts otherwise available with adverse 
inferences to Hyundai's weighted-average dumping margin, pursuant to 
sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, (the 
Act), was warranted.
    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, we made certain changes to the margin calculations 
for Hyosung. For Hyosung, Commerce has relied on partial adverse facts 
available under section 776(a)(1) of the Act with respect to general 
and administrative (G&A) expenses, indirect selling expenses, and 
document acceptance charges. As a result of these changes, the 
weighted-average dumping margin also changes for the three companies 
not selected for individual examination.

Final Results of the Review

    The final weighted-average dumping margins are as follows:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                               Weighted-

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice, 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rate

    The Department shall determine and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries.\4\ For any individually examined respondents whose weighted-
average dumping margin is above de minimis, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the 
total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales to 
the total entered value of those same sales in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the final results of this 
administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates 
calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 
0.5 percent), the Department will issue instructions directly to CBP to 
assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ In these final 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 Proceedings: Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period 
were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or 
customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the amount of 
dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and 
dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that 
importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad 
valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has 
reported reliable entered values, we will apply the assessment rate to 
the entered value of the importer's/customer's entries during the POR.
    With regard to Hyosung, as explained in our Issues and Decision 
Memorandum, we find that Hyosung has provided sufficient evidence, 
based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce's successor-
in-interest criteria, to demonstrate that Hyosung Heavy Industries 
Corporation (HIIC) is the successor-in-interest to Hyosung. After the 
publication of these final results, we intend to issue liquidation 
instructions covering entries made by Hyosung during the POR at the 
rate established in these final results.
    We intend to issue assessment instructions directly 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 this notice for all shipments of subject merchandise 
entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the 
publication of these final results, as provided by section 751(a)(2) of 
the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for respondents noted above will be 
equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final 
results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by 
producers or exporters not covered in this administrative 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; (3) if the exporter is 
not a firm covered in this review, a prior 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 subject merchandise; and (4) the 
cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 22.00 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-
fair-value investigation.\5\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

    As explained above, we find that Hyosung has provided sufficient 
evidence, based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce's 
successor-in-interest criteria, to demonstrate that HIIC is the 
successor-in-interest to Hyosung. Accordingly, effective the date of 
publication of these final results, we intend to instruct CBP to begin 
collecting deposits from HHIC at the rate assigned to Hyosung pursuant 
to these final results.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate regarding 
the reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties prior to 
liquidation of the relevant entries during the POR. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping and/or countervailing duties did occur and 
the subsequent assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction of proprietary information 
disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR 351.305(a)(3), which 
continues to govern business proprietary information in this segment of 
the proceeding. Timely written notification of the return/destruction 
of APO materials, or conversion to judicial protective order, is hereby 
requested. Failure to comply with the regulations and the terms of an 
APO is a sanctionable violation.

Notification to Interested Parties

    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) and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).
