Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin for Electrolux.6 Final Results of the Review As a result of this review, Commerce determines that a weighted-average dumping margin of 2.25 percent exists for Electrolux for the period February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018. Disclosure of Calculations We intend to disclose the calculations performed within five days of the date of publication of this notice to parties in this proceeding, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Electrolux reported the entered value of its U.S. sales such that we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of the sales for which entered value was reported. Where the respondent’s weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific assessment rate is zero 6 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2. E:\FR\FM\01OCN1.SGM 01OCN1 52064 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 190 / Tuesday, October 1, 2019 / Notices or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 41 days after publication of the final results of this review. 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The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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 Electrolux will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin that is established in the final results of this review; (2) for previously investigated companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit will continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original less-than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, but the manufacturer is, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the most recently completed segment for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 36.52 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV investigation.7 These 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 of antidumping duties prior to liquidation of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply with this requirement could result in Commerce’s presumption that reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double antidumping duties.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on a review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made certain 
changes to the preliminary weighted-average margin for Electrolux.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at Comment 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Final Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, Commerce determines that a weighted-
average dumping margin of 2.25 percent exists for Electrolux for the 
period February 1, 2017 through January 31, 2018.

Disclosure of Calculations

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

Assessment Rates

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act, and 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border 
Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate 
entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of 
this review.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), Electrolux reported the entered 
value of its U.S. sales such that we calculated importer-specific ad 
valorem duty assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of 
dumping calculated for the examined sales to the total entered value of 
the sales for which entered value was reported. Where the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific assessment 
rate is zero

[[Page 52064]]

or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 41 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

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 Electrolux will 
be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin that is established in 
the final results of this review; (2) for previously investigated 
companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit will 
continue to be the company-specific rate published for the most 
recently completed segment of this proceeding in which the company 
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, the cash deposit rate will be 
the cash deposit rate established for the most recently completed 
segment for the producer of the subject merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 
36.52 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\7\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

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 Commerce's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of double antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

of their responsibility concerning the disposition of proprietary 
information disclosed under APO in accordance with 19 CFR
