The mandatory respondents in this investigation are Hebei Huatong Wires and Cables Group Co., Ltd. (Huatong) and Shanghai Silin Special Equipment Co., Ltd. (Silin).

In addition, a complete version of the Issues and Decision Memorandum can be accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/ frn/. The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version are identical in content. Scope of the Investigation The products covered by this investigation are aluminum wire and cable from China. For a full description of the scope of this investigation, see ‘‘Scope of the Investigation,’’ at Appendix I. Scope Comments During the course of this investigation and the concurrent countervailing duty (CVD) investigation, Commerce received scope comments from interested parties. In our Preliminary Determination, we explained that certain interested parties had commented on the scope of the investigation and that Commerce had preliminarily modified the scope.3 We received no additional scope comments; therefore, the scope remains unchanged from that which appeared in the Preliminary Determination. Verification Because the mandatory respondents in this investigation did not provide 1 See Aluminum Wire and Cable from the People’s Republic of China: Affirmative Preliminary Determination of Sales at Less Than Fair Value and Postponement of Final Determination, 84 FR 26069 (June 5, 2019) (Preliminary Determination), and accompany Preliminary Decision Memorandum (PDM). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Determination in the Less Than Fair Value Investigation of Aluminum Wire and Cable from the People’s Republic of China,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 3 See Preliminary Determination PDM at 5–7. PO 00000 Frm 00009 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information requested by Commerce, and Commerce found in the Preliminary Determination that each of the mandatory respondents have been uncooperative, verification was not conducted. Analysis of Comments Received In response to our invitation to comment on the Preliminary Determination, interested parties submitted case and rebuttal briefs to Commerce. All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs that were submitted by parties in this investigation are addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum. A list of the issues addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum is attached to this notice at Appendix II. Changes Since the Preliminary Determination Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made no changes to the Preliminary Determination. For a discussion of the comments received, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. China-Wide Entity For the reasons explained in the Issues and Decision Memorandum, we are continuing to find that the use of adverse facts available (AFA), pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), is appropriate, and we are determining an estimated weighted-average dumping margin based entirely on AFA for the China-wide entity. Further, Commerce continues to consider the mandatory respondents, Huatong and Silin, to be a part of the China-wide entity. We continue to find that the China-wide entity, which also includes companies that failed to establish their eligibility for separate rate status as well as other Chinese exporters or producers that did not respond to Commerce’s quantity and value questionnaire, withheld requested information, significantly impeded the proceeding, and failed to cooperate to the best of their abilities, and thus we are continuing to base the final determination for the China-wide entity on AFA. See the Issues and Decision Memorandum for a full discussion of this issue. Adverse Facts Available In selecting the estimated weightedaverage dumping margin based on AFA for the China-wide entity, Commerce’s practice is to select a rate that is sufficiently adverse to ensure that the uncooperative party does not obtain a more favorable result by failing to cooperate than if it had fully E:\FR\FM\30OCN1.SGM 30OCN1

Rescission of Administrative Review

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.213(d)(1), Commerce will rescind an 
administrative review, in whole or in part, if the parties that 
requested a review withdraw the request within 90 days of the date of 
publication of the notice of initiation of the requested review. The 
petitioner withdrew its request for review for all companies by the 90-
day deadline, and no other party requested an administrative review of 
this order. Therefore, we are rescinding the administrative review of 
the antidumping duty order on certain steel nails from the Vietnam 
covering the period July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019, in its 
entirety.

Assessment

    Commerce will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to 
assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. Antidumping 
duties shall be assessed at rates equal to the cash deposit of 
estimated antidumping duties required at the time of entry, or 
withdrawal from warehouse, for consumption, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(c)(1)(i). Commerce intends to issue appropriate assessment 
instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of this notice in the

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 may result in the presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double 
antidumping duties.
