SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) finds that sales of finished carbon steel flanges (steel flanges) from Italy were made at less than normal value during the period of review (POR) February 8, 2017 through July 31, 2018.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: Background On October 17, 2019, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of the 2017–2018 antidumping duty administrative review of steel flanges from Italy and invited interested parties to comment.1 This administrative review covers 27 companies. The mandatory respondents are Forgital Italy S.p.A. (Forgital) and ASFO S.p.A. (ASFO). On November 18, 2019, we received a timely filed case brief from Forgital,2 and on November 25, 2019, we received a timely filed rebuttal brief from Weldbend Corporation and Boltex Manufacturing Co., L.P. (collectively, the petitioners).3 On February 10, 2020, Commerce extended the final results of this review to no later than April 14, 2020.4 For a further discussion of events subsequent to the Preliminary Results, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.5 Commerce conducted 1 See Finished Carbon Steel Flanges From Italy: Preliminary Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018, 84 FR 55551 (October 17, 2019) (Preliminary Results), and accompanying Preliminary Decision Memorandum. 2 See Forgital’s Letter, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges From Italy: Case Brief of Forgital Italy S.p.A.,’’ dated November 18, 2019. 3 See Petitioners’ Letter, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges from Italy: Rebuttal Brief of Weldbend Corporation and Boltex Manufacturing Co., L.P,’’ dated November 25, 2019. 4 See Memorandum, ‘‘Finished Carbon Steel Flanges From Italy: Extension of Deadline for Final Results of Antidumping Duty Administrative Review; 2017–2018,’’ dated February 10, 2020. 5 See Memorandum, ‘‘Issues and Decision Memorandum for the Final Results of the PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Analysis of Comments Received All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs are listed in the appendix to this notice and addressed in the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Application of Adverse Facts Available For these final results, pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act, we continue to rely upon facts otherwise available to assign estimated weighted-average dumping margins to the respondents selected for individual examination in this review because both Forgital and ASFO withheld necessary information that was requested by Commerce, thereby significantly impeding the conduct of the review. Further, we continue to find that both ASFO and Forgital failed to cooperate by not acting to the best of their abilities to comply with requests for information. Therefore, we continue to apply an adverse inference in selecting among the facts available (AFA) to the respondents, in accordance with section 776(b) of the Act. Rate for AFA and Non-Selected Companies For these final results, we continue to assign both Forgital and ASFO the AFA rate selected in the less-than-fair-value Administrative Review of the Antidumping Duty Order on Finished Carbon Steel Flanges From Italy; 2017–2018,’’ dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice (Issues and Decision Memorandum). 6 See Issues and Decision Memorandum at 2.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On October 17, 2019, Commerce published the Preliminary Results of 
the 2017-2018 antidumping duty administrative review of steel flanges 
from Italy and invited interested parties to comment.\1\ This 
administrative review covers 27 companies. The mandatory respondents 
are Forgital Italy S.p.A. (Forgital) and ASFO S.p.A. (ASFO). On 
November 18, 2019, we received a timely filed case brief from 
Forgital,\2\ and on November 25, 2019, we received a timely filed 
rebuttal brief from Weldbend Corporation and Boltex Manufacturing Co., 
L.P. (collectively, the petitioners).\3\ On February 10, 2020, Commerce 
extended the final results of this review to no later than April 14, 
2020.\4\

Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs are listed in the

Memorandum. The Issues and Decision Memorandum is a public document and 
is on file electronically via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping

Application of Adverse Facts Available

    For these final results, pursuant to section 776(a) of the Act, we 
continue to rely upon facts otherwise available to assign estimated 
weighted-average dumping margins to the respondents selected for 
individual examination in this review because both Forgital and ASFO 
withheld necessary information that was requested by Commerce, thereby 
significantly impeding the conduct of the review. Further, we continue 
to find that both ASFO and Forgital failed to cooperate by not acting 
to the best of their abilities to comply with requests for information. 
Therefore, we continue to apply an adverse inference in selecting among 
the facts available (AFA) to the respondents, in accordance with 
section 776(b) of the Act.

Rate for AFA and Non-Selected Companies

    For these final results, we continue to assign both Forgital and 
ASFO the AFA rate selected in the less-than-fair-value

investigation.\7\ Additionally, in accordance with the U.S. Court of 
Appeals for the Federal Circuit's decision in Albemarle Corp. v. United 
States,\8\ we are applying to the non-selected companies a rate based 
on the simple average of the individual rates applied to ASFO and 
Forgital in this administrative review.\9\ This is the only rate 
determined in this review for individual respondents and, thus, should 
be applied to the 25 non-selected companies under section 735(c)(5)(B) 
of the Act. For a detailed discussion, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protections 
(CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of 
subject merchandise in accordance with these final results of 
review.\10\ Thus, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem 
assessment rate of 204.53 percent to all entries of subject merchandise 
during the period of review which were produced and/or exported by 
ASFO, Forgital and the aforementioned companies which were not selected 
for individual examination. We intend to issue liquidation instructions 
to CBP 15 days after publication of the final results of this review.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1) and section 751(a)(2)(C) of the 
Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the final results of this administrative review 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 ASFO, Forgital 
and the other companies listed above will be equal to the weighted-
average dumping margin established in the final results of this 
administrative review; (2) for previously reviewed or investigated 
companies not listed above, 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 company participated; (3) if 
the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a prior review, or 
in the original investigation, but the producer is, then the cash 
deposit rate will be the rate established for the most recently 
completed segment of this proceeding for the producer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or 
exporters will continue to be the all-others rate of 79.17 percent, the 
rate established in the less-than-fair-value investigation.\11\ These 
cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until 
further notice.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \11\ See Order, 82 FR at 40138.

Notification to Importers

    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 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.

Administrative Protective Order (APO)

    This notice serves as the only reminder to parties subject to APO 
of their responsibility concerning the disposition 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 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
