SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    Commerce is conducting an administrative review of the antidumping 
duty order on certain steel nails from Taiwan. On September 10, 2018, 
based on timely requests for review, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative review on certain 
steel nails from Taiwan.\1\ This review covers PT 2 3 and 
Unicatch, and two additional companies not selected for individual 
examination. 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.\4\ The 
tolled deadline for the preliminary results of this review fell on May 
13, 2019. On March 4, 2018, we extended the deadline for the 
preliminary results to September 6, 2019.\5\ For a complete description 
of the events that followed the initiation of this administrative 
review, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum.\6\

    \8\ This rate is based on the weighted-average of the margins 
calculated for those companies selected for individual review. See 
Memorandum, ``Calculation of the Review-Specific Weighted-Average 
Rate for the Preliminary Results,'' dated concurrently with this 
notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce intends to disclose the calculations used in its analysis 
to parties in this review within five days of the date of publication 
of this notice.\9\ Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii), interested 
parties may submit case briefs no later than 30 days after the 
publication of these preliminary results, and rebuttal comments within 
five days after the time limit for filing case briefs, unless Commerce 
extends those deadlines.\10\ Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal 
briefs are requested to submit with the argument: (1) A statement of 
the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of 
authorities.\11\ Rebuttal briefs must be limited to issues raised in 
the case briefs.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.224(b).
    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii).
    \11\ See 19 CFR 351.309(c) and (d).
    \12\ See 19 CFR 351.309(d)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to 
request a hearing must submit a written request to the Assistant 
Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance within 30 days of the date of 
publication of this notice. Requests should contain: (1) The party's 
name, address and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and 
(3) a list of issues parties intend to discuss. Issues raised in the 
hearing will be limited to those raised in the respective case and 
rebuttal briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends 
to hold the hearing at the U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 
Constitution Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20230, at a date and time to be 
determined.\13\ Parties should confirm by telephone the date, time, and 
location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \13\ See 19 CFR 351.310(d).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Unless otherwise extended, 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, pursuant to section 
751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.

Assessment Rates

    Upon issuance of the final results, Commerce will determine, and 
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping 
duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review.\14\ Commerce 
intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the 
publication date of the final results of this review. For any 
individually examined respondent whose weighted-average dumping margin 
is above de minimis (i.e., is 0.50 percent or more) in the final 
results of this review, Commerce will calculate importer-specific 
assessment rates on the basis of the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the importer's examined sales and the total 
entered value of sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1).\15\ We 
will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries covered by this review when the importer-specific assessment 
rate calculated in the final results of this review is above de 
minimis. Where either the respondent's weighted-average dumping margin 
is zero or de minimis, or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \14\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \15\ 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 Proceedings; Final 
Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by each 
respondent 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(ies) involved in the transaction.\16\ The final results of this 
review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping duties on 
entries of merchandise covered by this review and for future deposits 
of estimated duties, where applicable.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \16\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all 
shipments of the 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) The cash deposit rate for the companies 
under review will be the rate established in the final results of this 
review (except, if the ad valorem rate is de minimis, then the cash 
deposit rate will be zero); (2) for other manufacturers and exporters 
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 in which that 
manufacturer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a 
firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-
fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the manufacturer of subject 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 2.16 percent, the all-others rate in 
the LTFV investigation.\17\ These cash deposit requirements, when 
imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

    \17\ See Certain Steel Nails from Taiwan: Final Determination of 
Sales at Less Than Fair Value, 80 FR 28959 (May 20, 2015); see also 
Certain Steel Nails from Taiwan: Notice of Court Decision Not in 
Harmony with Final Determination in Less Than Fair Value 
Investigation and Notice of Amended Final Determination, 82 FR 55090 
(November 20, 2017), wherein the All-Others rate was revised 
pursuant to litigation.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a 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 review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could

[[Page 48118]]

result in Commerce'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 preliminary results in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: September 5, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
