Where the POSCO single entity did not report the entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-specific assessment rates based on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer’s examined sales and the total quantity of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where we calculated a per-unit assessment rate, we also calculated an ad valorem importerspecific assessment rate based on estimated entered values with which to assess whether the per-unit assessment rate is de minimis. We will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review when the importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate calculation in the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less than 0.5 percent).

We intend to instruct CBP to take into account the ‘‘provisional measures deposit cap,’’ in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d). For each company that was not selected for individual examination, we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at a rate equal to the weightedaverage dumping margin determined for that company in the final results of this review. For each company which we determined had ‘‘no shipments’’ of the subject merchandise during the POR (i.e., Hyundai Steel and Hyundai Glovis), we will instruct CBP to liquidate all POR entries associated with these companies at the all-others rate (i.e., 7.10 percent) 10 established in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction, consistent with Commerce’s reseller policy.11 We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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 each company listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin established for that company in the final results of this administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by a producer or exporter 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 of this proceeding in which the producer or exporter participated; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the original LTFV investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed segment of the proceeding 9 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties This notice also 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 the POR. 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. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction 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 the 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.

    In the Preliminary Results we erroneously determined a weighted-
average dumping margin for Hyundai Steel and Hyundai Glovis based on 
the rate determined for POSCO. In these final results we find that 
Hyundai Steel and Hyundai Glovis made no shipments during the POR.\5\

Assessment Rates

    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 these final results of 
review.\8\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ Commerce has determined that POSCO, POSCO Daewoo 
Corporation, POSCO Processing and Service Co., Ltd., Taechang Steel 
Co., Ltd., Winsteel Co., Ltd, Moonbae Steel Co., Ltd., Dae Dong 
Steel Co., Ltd, SPFC Co., Ltd., Steel Flower Co., Ltd., TC-TECH, 
Shinjin Esco Co., Ltd., POSCO Plantec., Ltd., POSCO Engineering and 
Construction Co., Ltd., Hi Steel Co., Ltd., Miju Steel, POSCO Eng., 
and Shilla Steel Co., Ltd. are affiliated pursuant to section 
771(33)(E) of the Act, and further that these companies should be 
treated as a single entity (collectively, POSCO single entity) 
pursuant to 19 CFR 351.401(f). See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 
Comment 1.
    \7\ This rate is based on the rate for the sole respondent that 
was selected for individual review. See section 735(c)(5)(A) of the 
Act.
    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where the POSCO single entity 
reported the entered value of its U.S. sales, we calculated importer-
specific ad valorem antidumping duty assessment rates based on the 
ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's 
examined sales to the total entered value of such sales. Where the 
POSCO single entity did not report the entered value of its U.S. sales, 
we calculated importer-specific assessment rates based on the ratio of 
the total amount of dumping calculated for the importer's examined 
sales and the total quantity of those sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.212(b)(1). Where we calculated a per-unit assessment rate, we also 
calculated an ad valorem importer-specific assessment rate based on 
estimated entered values with which to assess whether the per-unit 
assessment rate is de minimis. We will instruct CBP to assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this review 
when the importer-specific ad valorem assessment rate calculation in 
the final results of this review is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less 
than 0.5 percent). Where either the respondent's

[[Page 70953]]

weight-averaged dumping margin is zero or de minimis, or an importer-
specific ad valorem assessment rate is zero or de minimis,\9\ we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to 
antidumping duties.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to instruct CBP to take into account the ``provisional 
measures deposit cap,'' in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(d).
    For each company that was not selected for individual examination, 
we will instruct CBP to assess antidumping duties at a rate equal to 
the weighted-average dumping margin determined for that company in the 
final results of this review.
    For each company which we determined had ``no shipments'' of the 
subject merchandise during the POR (i.e., Hyundai Steel and Hyundai 
Glovis), we will instruct CBP to liquidate all POR entries associated 
with these companies at the all-others rate (i.e., 7.10 percent) \10\ 
established in the less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation if there 
is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction, consistent with Commerce's reseller policy.\11\ We intend 
to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of 
the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See Order, 84 FR at 24098.

Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties,

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 each company 
listed above will be equal to the weighted-average dumping margin 
established for that company in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for merchandise exported by a producer or 
exporter 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 of this 
proceeding in which the producer or exporter participated; (3) if the 
exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or the 
original LTFV investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit 
rate will be the rate established for the most recently completed 
segment of the proceeding for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) 
the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will 
continue to be 7.10 percent ad valorem, the all-others rate established 
in the LTFV investigation.\12\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ See Order, 84 FR at 24098.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in 
effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also 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 the POR. 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.

Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction 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 the 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

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.221(b)(5).

    Dated: December 16, 2019.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
