Where either the respondent’s weightedaverage 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 antidumping duties. 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.6 We intend to issue instructions to CBP 41 days after the publication date 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The following cash deposit requirements will be effective for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of the final results of this administrative review, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the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 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 reviewed or investigated 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, a prior review, or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recent segment for the producer of the 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. lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES Disclosure and Public Comment Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed in connection with these preliminary results to 6 See VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:26 Feb 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 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.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On December 3, 2014, Commerce published in the Federal Register the CVD order on non-oriented electrical steel (NOES) from the People’s Republic of China (China).1 On November 1, 1 See Non-Oriented Electrical Steel from the People’s Republic of China and Taiwan: Countervailing Duty Orders, 79 FR 71749 (December 3, 2014) (Order). E:\FR\FM\27FEN1.SGM 27FEN1 11340 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 39 / Thursday, February 27, 2020 / Notices 2019, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the first sunset review of the CVD order on NOES from China, pursuant to section 751(c) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).2 On November 15, 2019, Commerce received a notice of intent to participate from the domestic interested party, AK Steel Corporation (AK Steel).3 The notice of intent to participate was timely filed within the deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). Additionally, AK Steel claimed interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a domestic producer of NOES. Commerce received an adequate substantive response to the notice of initiation from the domestic producer within the 30-day deadline specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).4 However, because we did not receive a substantive response from the Government of China (GOC) or from any other respondent interested parties who are producers or exporters of NOES, we determined that respondent interested parties provided inadequate responses to Commerce’s notice of initiation. On December 13, 2019, Commerce notified the U.S. International Trade Commission that it did not receive an adequate substantive response from respondent interested parties.5 As a result, pursuant to 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(B)(2) and 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the CVD Order on NOES from China. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the Order is NOES, which includes coldrolled, flat-rolled, alloy steel products, whether or not in coils, regardless of width, having an actual thickness of 0.20 mm or more, in which the core loss is substantially equal in any direction of magnetization in the plane of the material. The term ‘‘substantially equal’’ means that the cross grain direction of core loss is no more than 1.5 times the straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling direction) of core loss. NOES has a magnetic permeability that does not lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES 2 See Initiation of Five-Year (Sunset) Reviews, 84 FR 58687 (November 1, 2019). 3 See AK Steel’s Letter, ‘‘Five-Year (‘Sunset’) Review of Countervailing Duty Order on NonOriented Electrical Steel from The People’s Republic of China: Domestic Interested Party Notice of Intent to Participate,’’ dated November 15, 2019. 4 See AK Steel’s Letter, ‘‘Five-Year (‘Sunset’) Review of Countervailing Duty Order on NonOriented Electrical Steel from the People’s Republic of China: Domestic Interested Party Substantive Response,’’ dated November 27, 2019. 5 See Commerce’s Letter, ‘‘Sunset Reviews Initiated on November 1, 2019,’’ dated December 13, 2019.

NOES contains by weight more than 1.00 percent of silicon but less than 3.5 percent of silicon, not more than 0.08 percent of carbon, and not more than 1.5 percent of aluminum. NOES has a surface oxide coating, to which an insulation coating may be applied. NOES is subject to the Order whether it is fully processed (i.e., fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties) or semi-processed (i.e., finished to final thickness and physical form but not fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties). Fully processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 677, Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) specification C 2552, and/or International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) specification 60404–8–4. Semiprocessed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 683. However, the scope of the Order is not limited to merchandise meeting the ASTM, JIS, and IEC specifications noted immediately above. NOES is sometimes referred to as cold-rolled non-oriented (CRNO), nongrain oriented (NGO), non-oriented (NO), or cold-rolled non-grain oriented (CRNGO) electrical steel. These terms are interchangeable.

Further, 19 CFR 351.210(e)(2) requires that such postponement requests by exporters be accompanied by a request for extension of provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months, in accordance with section 733(d) of the Act. On February 11, 2020, CS Wind Vietnam Co., Ltd. (CS Wind), the mandatory respondent in this investigation, requested that Commerce postpone the deadline for the final determination until no later than 135 days from the publication of the Preliminary Determination, and extend the application of the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months.3 In accordance with section 735(a)(2)(A) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.210(b)(2)(ii), because: (1) The preliminary determination was affirmative; (2) the request was made by the exporter and producer who accounts for a significant proportion of exports of the subject merchandise; and (3) no compelling reasons for denial exist, Commerce is postponing the final determination until no later than 135 days after the date of the publication of the Preliminary Determination, and extending the provisional measures from a four-month period to a period of not more than six months.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) finds that revocation of 
the countervailing duty (CVD) order would be likely to lead to the 
continuation or recurrence of a countervailable subsidy at the levels 
indicated in the ``Final Results of Review'' section of this notice.

DATES: Applicable February 27, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On December 3, 2014, Commerce published in the Federal Register the 
CVD order on non-oriented electrical steel (NOES) from the People's 
Republic of China (China).\1\ On November 1,

[[Page 11340]]

2019, Commerce published the notice of initiation of the first sunset 
review of the CVD order on NOES from China, pursuant to section 751(c) 
of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\2\ On November 15, 
2019, Commerce received a notice of intent to participate from the 
domestic interested party, AK Steel Corporation (AK Steel).\3\ The 
notice of intent to participate was timely filed within the deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(1)(i). Additionally, AK Steel claimed 
interested party status under section 771(9)(C) of the Act, as a 
domestic producer of NOES.

    Commerce received an adequate substantive response to the notice of 
initiation from the domestic producer within the 30-day deadline 
specified in 19 CFR 351.218(d)(3)(i).\4\ However, because we did not 
receive a substantive response from the Government of China (GOC) or 
from any other respondent interested parties who are producers or 
exporters of NOES, we determined that respondent interested parties 
provided inadequate responses to Commerce's notice of initiation.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    On December 13, 2019, Commerce notified the U.S. International 
Trade Commission that it did not receive an adequate substantive 
response from respondent interested parties.\5\ As a result, pursuant 
to 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(B)(2) and 
351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2), Commerce conducted an expedited (120-day)

Scope of the Order

    The merchandise covered by the Order is NOES, which includes cold-
rolled, flat-rolled, alloy steel products, whether or not in coils, 
regardless of width, having an actual thickness of 0.20 mm or more, in 
which the core loss is substantially equal in any direction of 
magnetization in the plane of the material. The term ``substantially 
equal'' means that the cross grain direction of core loss is no more 
than 1.5 times the straight grain direction (i.e., the rolling 
direction) of core loss. NOES has a magnetic permeability that does not 
exceed 1.65 Tesla when tested at a field of 800 A/m (equivalent to 10 
Oersteds) along (i.e., parallel to) the rolling direction of the sheet 
(i.e., B800 value). NOES contains by weight more than 1.00 
percent of silicon but less than 3.5 percent of silicon, not more than 
0.08 percent of carbon, and not more than 1.5 percent of aluminum. NOES 
has a surface oxide coating, to which an insulation coating may be 
applied.
    NOES is subject to the Order whether it is fully processed (i.e., 
fully annealed to develop final magnetic properties) or semi-processed 
(i.e., finished to final thickness and physical form but not fully 
annealed to develop final magnetic properties). Fully processed NOES is 
typically made to the requirements of ASTM specification A 677, 
Japanese Industrial Standards (JIS) specification C 2552, and/or 
International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) specification 60404-8-
4. Semi-processed NOES is typically made to the requirements of ASTM 
specification A 683. However, the scope of the Order is not limited to 
merchandise meeting the ASTM, JIS, and IEC specifications noted 
immediately above.
    NOES is sometimes referred to as cold-rolled non-oriented (CRNO), 
non-grain oriented (NGO), non-oriented (NO), or cold-rolled non-grain 
oriented (CRNGO) electrical steel. These terms are interchangeable.
    Excluded from the scope of the Order are flat-rolled products not 
in coils that, prior to importation into the United States, have been 
cut to a shape and undergone all punching, coating, or other operations 
necessary for classification in Chapter 85 of the Harmonized Tariff 
Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) as a part (i.e., lamination) for 
use in a device such as a motor, generator, or transformer.
    The subject merchandise is provided for in subheadings 
7225.19.0000, 7226.19.1000, and 7226.19.9000 of the HTSUS. Subject 
merchandise may also be entered under subheadings 7225.50.8085, 
7225.99.0090, 7226.92.5000, 7226.92.7050, 7226.92.8050, 7226.99.0180 of 
the HTSUS. Although the HTSUS subheadings above are provided for 
convenience and customs purpose, the written description of the scope 
of the Order is dispositive.
