Scope of the Order The merchandise subject to the order is diffusion-annealed, nickel-plated flatrolled steel products from Japan. The product is currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheadings 7212.50.0000 and 7210.90.6000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written product description remains dispositive.

VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Nov 19, 2019 Jkt 250001 Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on a review of the record and comments received from interested parties regarding our Preliminary Results, we made changes to the preliminary margin calculations for Toyo Kohan.5 However, as a result of these revisions, the weighted-average margin for Toyo Kohan did not change from that presented in the Preliminary Results. Determination of No Shipments As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a properly-filed no shipment claim from Nippon Steel and confirmed the company’s claim with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).6 We received no comments from interested parties with respect to this claim. Therefore, because the record indicates that Nippon Steel did not export subject merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find that Nippon Steel had no shipments during the POR.

Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), 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.

The final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of AD duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.7 Commerce’s ‘‘reseller policy’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by Toyo Kohan for which Toyo Kohan did not know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, 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.8 We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 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 Toyo Kohan will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin that is established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; (2) for companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit rate will continue to be the company-specific cash deposit rate published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less than-fairvalue (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, the cash deposit rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the most recently completed segment for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 45.42 percent, the all-others rate 7 See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act. a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003). 8 For E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1 64044 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 224 / Wednesday, November 20, 2019 / Notices established in the LTFV investigation.9 These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Failure to comply with this requirement could result in the Secretary’s presumption that reimbursement of AD duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of double AD 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 changes 
to the preliminary margin calculations for Toyo Kohan.\5\ However, as a 
result of these revisions, the weighted-average margin for Toyo Kohan 
did not change from that presented in the Preliminary Results.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 2.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Determination of No Shipments

    As noted in the Preliminary Results, we received a properly-filed 
no shipment claim from Nippon Steel and confirmed the company's claim 
with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).\6\ We received no 
comments from interested parties with respect to this claim. Therefore, 
because the record indicates that Nippon Steel did not export subject 
merchandise to the United States during the POR, we continue to find 
that Nippon Steel had no shipments during the POR.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Preliminary Results, 84 FR at 34131.

Final Results of the Review

    We are assigning the following weighted-average dumping margin to

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, AD 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), 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 either 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 or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to AD duties. The 
final results of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of 
AD duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of 
this review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \7\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``reseller policy'' will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by Toyo Kohan for which Toyo Kohan 
did not know that the merchandise it sold to the intermediary (e.g., a 
reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United 
States. In such instances, 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.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 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

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 AD 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 AD duties occurred and the subsequent assessment of 
double AD duties.

Administrative Protective Order

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

Notification to Interested Parties

751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.
