Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Constructed 
export price is calculated in accordance with section 772 of the Act. 
NV is calculated in accordance with section 773 of the Act. For a full 
description of the methodology underlying our conclusions, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary Decision Memorandum is 
a public document and is on file electronically via Enforcement and 
Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Centralized Electronic 
Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is available to registered users at 
http://access.trade.gov and to all parties in the Central Records Unit,

notice.

Preliminary Results of the Review

    As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that a 
weighted-average margin of 3.53 percent exists for Electrolux for the 
period February 1, 2018 through January 31, 2019.

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.\5\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1), we calculated importer-specific 
ad valorem

[[Page 11339]]

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 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\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.
