For a full discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Rate for Non-Examined Companies The statute and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a weighted-average dumping margin 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 less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, for guidance when calculating the weighted-average dumping margin 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 weightedaverage 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}.’’ However, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act states that if the weighted-average dumping margins for all individually examined exporters or producers are zero or de minimis or based entirely on facts available, then Commerce may use ‘‘any reasonable method’’ to establish the allothers rate, including averaging the weighted-average dumping margins for the individually examined companies. Consistent with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, we have determined that a reasonable method for determining the weighted-average dumping margin for each of the non-selected companies is to use the weighted-average dumping VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:15 Jun 26, 2019 Jkt 247001 margin calculated for the sole mandatory respondent (i.e., Colakoglu) in this administrative review. Although the weighted-average dumping margin calculated for Colakoglu is zero, it is the only rate calculated in this review and, thus, Commerce has determined the weighted-average dumping margin for the non-examined companies to be zero.9 Final Results of the Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period March 22, 2016 through September 30, 2017: Producer or exporter Colakoglu Metalurji A.S. and Colakoglu Dis Ticaret A.S ..................................

Assessment Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review in the Federal Register. For Colakoglu and for each of the nonexamined companies identified above, we will instruct CBP to liquidate its entries during the POR imported by the importers identified in its questionnaire responses without regard to antidumping duties because each company’s weighted-average dumping margin in these final results is zero.10 Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries of 9 See Certain Lined Paper Products from India: Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2016–2017, 84 FR 23017 (May 21, 2019). 10 See Antidumping Proceeding: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103, 8103 (February 14, 2012).

Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) For the companies identified above in the Final Results of Review section, the cash deposit rates will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margins established in the final results of this review, except where the weightedaverage dumping margin is de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent) the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in this review, 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 previous review, or the original LTFV 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 subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 6.41 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.12 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Background Permit 13791–6M The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) is seeking to modify a 5-year permit that currently allows them to take juvenile CVSR and SRWR Chinook salmon, juvenile CCV steelhead and juvenile green sturgeon in the lower Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers and SF estuary, CA . The purposes of the research are to assess (1) abundance, temporal and spatial distribution, and survival of salmonids, (2) occurrence and habitat use of fishes within the Liberty Island and Cache Slough Complex, (3) relative gear efficiency for fish survey nets, and also the distribution of Delta smelt, (4) littoral habitat use of juvenile Chinook salmon within the Delta, (5) abundance and distribution of Delta smelt, (6) length at date race criteria of winter run sized and larger Chinook salmon, (7) winter and spring run sized Chinook salmon floodplain usage in the Yolo bypass, and (8) salmonid genetic monitoring. The FWS proposes to capture fish with seines (beach and purse), nets (fyke and gill), boat and backpack electroshocking, trawls (midwater and bottom), and with rotary screw traps. The FWS would also observe fish during snorkel and spawning ground surveys. A subset of the captured fish would be anesthetized, measured, weighed, tagged (acoustic or PIT), dye injected (tattoo, photonic) have a tissue sample taken, allowed to recover, and released. This modification is requested because the original permit application did not include take of adult salmon. The FWS is requesting take for adult SRWR and CVSR Chinook salmon, and CCV steelhead. While the FWS does not target adult fish, encounters with adult fish have occurred. The researchers would avoid adult salmonids, but some may be encountered as an unintentional result of sampling. 14808–4M The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) is seeking to modify a 5-year permit that currently allows them to take juvenile and adult SRWR and CVSR Chinook salmon, CCV steelhead and green sturgeon in the Central Valley of CA. The purposes of the research are to (1) monitor the outmigration of juvenile salmonids on a real-time basis, (2) provide daily E:\FR\FM\27JNN1.SGM 27JNN1

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that Gazi Metal 
Mamulleri Sanayi Ve Ticaret A.S. (Gazi), Toscelik Profile and Sheet 
Ind. Co. (a.k.a. Toscelik Profil ve Sac endustrisi A.S.) and Tosyali 
Holding A.S. (collectively, Toscelik), and Eregli Demir ve Celik 
Fabrikalari T.A.S. and Iskenderun Iron and Steel Works Ltd. (a.k.a. 
Iskenderun Demir ve Celik A.S.) (collectively, Erdemir) had no 
shipments of the subject merchandise during the POR. As no party has 
identified any record evidence which would call into question these 
preliminary findings, we continue to find that Gazi, Toscelik, and 
Erdemir made no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR. 
Accordingly, consistent with our practice, we intend to instruct U.S. 
Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to liquidate any existing entries 
of subject merchandise associated with these companies consistent with 
Commerce's reseller policy.\8\

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain 
changes to the Preliminary Results. For a full discussion of these 
changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rate for Non-Examined Companies

    The statute and Commerce's regulations do not address the 
establishment of a weighted-average dumping margin 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 less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, for guidance when 
calculating the weighted-average dumping margin 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} .'' However, section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act states 
that if the weighted-average dumping margins for all individually 
examined exporters or producers are zero or de minimis or based 
entirely on facts available, then Commerce may use ``any reasonable 
method'' to establish the all-others rate, including averaging the 
weighted-average dumping margins for the individually examined 
companies.
    Consistent with section 735(c)(5)(B) of the Act, we have determined 
that a reasonable method for determining the weighted-average dumping 
margin for each of the non-selected companies is to use the weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for the sole mandatory respondent 
(i.e., Colakoglu) in this administrative review. Although the weighted-
average dumping margin calculated for Colakoglu is zero, it is the only 
rate calculated in this review and, thus, Commerce has determined the 
weighted-average dumping margin for the non-examined companies to be

Disclosure

    We intend to disclose the calculations performed for these final 
results of review within five days of the publication date of this 
notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties on 
all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the 
final results of this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final 
results of this administrative review in the Federal Register.
    For Colakoglu and for each of the non-examined companies identified 
above, we will instruct CBP to liquidate its entries during the POR 
imported by the importers identified in its questionnaire responses 
without regard to antidumping duties because each company's weighted-
average dumping margin in these final results is zero.\10\

Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Duty Proceedings; Final Modification, 77 FR 8103, 8103 (February 14, 
2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by Gazi, Toscelik, Erdemir, 
and any other company upon which we examined in this administrative 
review (i.e., Colakoglu) for which they did not know that the 
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(ies) involved in the transaction.\11\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Assessment 
Policy.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, 
for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results 
of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of 
the Act: (1) For the companies identified above in the Final Results of 
Review section, the cash deposit rates will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margins established in the final results of this 
review, except where the weighted-average dumping margin is de minimis 
(i.e., less than 0.5 percent) the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) 
for previously reviewed or investigated companies not participating in 
this review, 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 
previous review, or the original LTFV 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 
subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other 
producers or exporters will continue to be 6.41 percent, the all-others 
rate established in the LTFV investigation.\12\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a final reminder to importers of their 
responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f)(2) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement

[[Page 30696]]

of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries 
during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement 
could result in the presumption that reimbursement of antidumping 
duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping 
duties.

Administrative Protective Order

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

Notification to Interested Parties
