Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine the 
following weighted-average dumping margins for the period December 1, 
2017 through November 30, 2018:

                                                               (percent)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
NEXTEEL Co., Ltd............................................        4.81
SeAH Steel Corporation......................................        3.45
------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Review-Specific Average Rate Applicable to the Following Companies: 
\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ This rate is based on the weighted-average of the margins 
calculated for those companies selected for individual review using 
the publicly-ranged U.S. quantities. Because we cannot apply our 
normal methodology of calculating a weighted-average margin due to 
requests to protect business proprietary information, we find this 
rate to be the best proxy of the actual weighted-average margin 
determined for the mandatory respondents. See Ball Bearings and 
Parts Thereof from France, et al.: Final Results of Antidumping Duty 
Administrative Reviews, Final Results of Changed-Circumstances 
Review, and Revocation of an Order in Part, 75 FR 53661, 53663

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.
    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), where NEXTEEL Co., Ltd. (NEXTEEL) 
reported the entered value of its U.S. sales, 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. SeAH 
Steel Corporation (SeAH) did not report actual entered value for all of 
its U.S. sales; in such instances, we calculated importer-specific per-
unit duty assessment rates by aggregating the total amount of 
antidumping duties calculated for the examined sales and dividing this 
amount by the total quantity of those sales. 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 
rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the 
appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the weighted-average \6\ of the 
cash deposit rates calculated for NEXTEEL and SeAH. The final results 
of this review shall be the basis for the assessment of antidumping 
duties on entries of merchandise covered by the final results of this 
review and for future deposits of estimated duties, where 
applicable.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ This rate was calculated as discussed in footnote 5, above.
    \7\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
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 specific 
company listed above will be that 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 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, 
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 recent segment for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 4.38 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\8\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) 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.
    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: January 31, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
