DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [B–18–2020] jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Foreign-Trade Zone (FTZ) 158— Jackson, Mississippi, Notification of Proposed Production Activity, Traxys Cometals USA, LLC (Manganese and Aluminum Alloying Agents), Burnsville, Mississippi Traxys Cometals USA, LLC (Traxys Cometals) submitted a notification of proposed production activity to the FTZ Board for its facility in Burnsville, Mississippi. The notification conforming to the requirements of the regulations of the FTZ Board (15 CFR 400.22) was received on March 11, 2020. Traxys Cometals already has authority to produce high-grade manganese and aluminum alloying agents within FTZ 158. The current request would add a finished product and a foreign status material/component to the scope of authority. Pursuant to 15 CFR 400.14(b), additional FTZ authority would be limited to the specific foreign-status material/component and the specific finished product described in the submitted notification (as described below) and subsequently authorized by the FTZ Board. Production under FTZ procedures could exempt Traxys Cometals from customs duty payments on the foreignstatus materials/components used in export production. On its domestic sales, for the foreign-status material/ component noted below and in the existing scope of authority, Traxys Cometals would be able to choose the duty rate during customs entry procedures that applies to low-carbon ferromanganese powder (duty rate 2.3%). Traxys Cometals would be able to avoid duty on foreign-status components which become scrap/waste. Customs duties also could possibly be deferred or reduced on foreign-status production equipment. The material/component sourced from abroad is manganese powder (duty rate 14%). Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary and sent to: ftz@trade.gov. The closing period for their receipt is May 4, 2020.

and for future deposits of estimated duties, where applicable.\9\ We 
intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review. Pursuant to Commerce's 
practice, if we continue to determine that Korvan and Woojin made no 
sales or shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during 
the POR, any suspended entries of subject merchandise during the POR 
under their case numbers will be liquidated at the all-others rate.

Notification to Importers

    This notice serves as a preliminary 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 this period of review. 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.
    Commerce is issuing and publishing these results of review in 
accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i) of the Act and 19 CFR 
351.221(b)(4).

    Dated: March 4, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
