The standard widths of certain onthe-road steel wheels are 4 inches, 4.5 inches, 5 inches, 5.5 inches, 6 inches, and 6.5 inches, but all certain on-the-road steel wheels, regardless of width, are covered by the scope. The scope includes rims and discs for certain on-the-road steel wheels, whether imported as an assembly, unassembled, or separately. The scope includes certain onthe-road steel wheels regardless of steel composition, whether cladded or not cladded, whether finished or not finished, and whether coated or uncoated. The scope also includes certain on-the-road steel wheels with discs in either a ‘‘hub-piloted’’ or ‘‘studpiloted’’ mounting configuration, though the stud-piloted configuration is most common in the size range covered. All on-the-road wheels sold in the United States must meet Standard 110 or 120 of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards, which requires a rim marking, such as the ‘‘DOT’’ symbol, indicating compliance with applicable motor vehicle standards. See 49 CFR 571.110 and 571.120. The scope includes certain on-theroad steel wheels imported with or without NHTSA’s required markings. Certain on-the-road steel wheels imported as an assembly with a tire mounted on the wheel and/or with a valve stem or rims imported as an assembly with a tire mounted on the rim and/or with a valve stem are included in the scope of these investigations. However, if the steel wheels or rims are imported as an assembly with a tire mounted on the wheel or rim and/or with a valve stem attached, the tire and/or valve stem is not covered by the scope. The scope includes rims, discs, and wheels that have been further processed in a third country, including, but not limited to, the painting of wheels from China and the welding and painting of rims and discs from China to form a steel wheel, or any other processing that would not otherwise remove the merchandise from the scope of the investigations if performed in China. Excluded from this scope are the following: (1) Steel wheels for use with tube-type tires; such tires use multi piece rims, which are two-piece and three-piece assemblies and require the use of an inner tube; (2) aluminum wheels; (3) certain on-the-road steel wheels that are coated entirely in chrome. This exclusion is limited to chrome wheels coated entirely in chrome and produced through a chromium electroplating process, and does not extend to wheels that have been finished with other processes, including, but not limited to, Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD); (4) steel wheels that do not meet Standard 110 or 120 of the NHTSA’s requirements other than the rim marking requirements found in 49 CFR 571.110S4.4.2 and 571.120S5.2; (5) steel wheels that meet the following specifications: Steel wheels with a nominal wheel diameter ranging from 15 inches to 16.5 inches, with a rim width of 8 inches or greater, and a wheel backspacing ranging from 3.75 inches to 5.5 inches; and VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:47 Jul 08, 2019 Jkt 247001 (6) steel wheels with wire spokes. Certain on-the-road steel wheels subject to these investigations are properly classifiable under the following category of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS): 8716.90.5035 which covers the exact product covered by the scope whether entered as an assembled wheel or in components. Certain on-the-road steel wheels entered with a tire mounted on them may be entered under HTSUS 8716.90.5059 (Trailers and semi-trailers; other vehicles, not mechanically propelled, parts, wheels, other, wheels with other tires) (a category that will be broader than what is covered by the scope).

This rate shall be an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero and de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely under section 776 of the Act. Commerce calculated an individual estimated weighted-average dumping margin for Dead Sea Magnesium, Ltd. (DSM), the only individually examined exporter/ producer in this investigation. Because the only individually calculated dumping margin is not zero, de minimis, or based entirely on facts otherwise available, the estimated weighted-average dumping margin calculated for DSM is the margin assigned to all other producers and exporters, pursuant to section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act.

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 review.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    If JBL Canada's calculated weighted-average dumping margin is above 
de minimis (i.e., greater than or equal to 0.5 percent) in the final 
results of this review, we will calculate importer-specific ad valorem 
duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales to the total 
entered value of the examined sales to that importer, and we will 
instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries 
covered by this review. If JBL Canada's weighted-average dumping margin 
continues to be zero or de minimis, or the importer-specific assessment 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    In accordance with Commerce's ``automatic assessment'' practice, 
for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by JBL 
Canada 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.\14\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of 
Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the date of 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of administrative review for 
all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from 
warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as 
provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate 
for JBL Canada will be the rate established in the final results of 
this review, except if the rate is de minimis within the meaning of 19 
CFR 351.106(c)(1) (i.e., less than 0.50 percent), in which case the 
cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for merchandise exported by 
manufacturers 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; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a 
prior review, or the original investigation, but the manufacturer is, 
the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most 
recently-completed segment for the manufacturer of the merchandise; and 
(4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers or exporters will 
continue to be 23.21 percent, the all-others rate established in the 
less-than-fair-value investigation.\15\ These cash deposit 
requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further 
notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of

[[Page 32712]]

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 review period. 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: July 2, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
