SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 5, 2020, Commerce published the Preliminary Results in the Federal Register.1 We invited interested parties to comment on the Preliminary Results. No interested parties submitted comments or a request for a hearing. Commerce conducted this review in accordance with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by this Order 2 is prestressed concrete steel wire strand produced from wire of nonstainless, non-galvanized steel, which is suitable for use in prestressed concrete (both pre-tensioned and post-tensioned) applications. The product definition encompasses covered and uncovered strand and all types, grades, and diameters of PC strand. The merchandise subject to the Order is currently classifiable under subheadings 7312.10.3010 and 7312.10.3012 of the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS). Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to the scope is dispositive. Changes Since the Preliminary Results As no parties submitted comments on the margin calculation methodology used in the Preliminary Results, Commerce made no adjustments to that methodology in the final results of this review. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Final Results of the Review In the Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that SIW did not make sales of subject merchandise at less than NV during the POR.

Accordingly, Commerce determines that a weighted-average dumping margin of 0.00 percent exists for entries of subject merchandise that were produced and/or exported by SIW. Assessment Rates Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce has determined, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with these final results of administrative review. Because we calculated a zero margin for SIW in the final results of this review, we intend to instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of these final results of review. Cash Deposit Requirements The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon publication of these final results of administrative review for all shipments of the subject merchandise from Thailand entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date, as provided by sections 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The cash deposit rate for SIW will be equal to zero; (2) for previously investigated companies not covered in this review but covered in a completed prior segment of this proceeding, 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 was reviewed; (3) if the exporter is not a firm covered in this review, a previous review, or 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 subject merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 12.91 percent, the all-others rate established in the investigation.3 These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. 3 See PO 00000 Order, 69 FR at 4111.

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. Notification Regarding Administrative Protective Order This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility concerning the return or destruction 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.

As stated in the Preliminary Results, we found that the application of total facts otherwise available, with adverse inferences, to Hyundai’s weighted-average dumping margin, pursuant to sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), was warranted. Based on our review of the record and comments received from interested parties, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for Hyosung.5 As a result of these changes, the weightedaverage dumping margin also changes for the companies not selected for individual examination.

Upon issuance of the final results of this administrative review, if any importer-specific assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis (i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), Commerce will issue instructions directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries. To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or customer)specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the amount of dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has reported reliable entered values, we will apply the assessment rate to the entered value of the importer’s/customer’s entries during the POR. 6 In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 (February 14, 2012).

Scope of the Order

    The scope of this order covers large liquid dielectric power 
transformers having a top power handling capacity greater than or equal 
to 60,000 kilovolt amperes (60 megavolt amperes), whether assembled or 
unassembled, complete or incomplete. The merchandise subject to the

8504.90.9540. For a complete description of the scope of the order, see 
the accompanying Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Final Determination of No Shipments

    In the Amended Preliminary Results, Commerce determined that LSIS 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR.\4\ As no party 
commented on this issue and because we have not received any 
information to contradict our preliminary finding, we continue to find 
that LSIS did not have any shipments of subject merchandise during the

Analysis of Comments Received

    All issues raised in the case and rebuttal briefs by parties to 
this administrative review are addressed in the Issues and Decision 
Memorandum. For a list of the issues raised by parties, see the 
appendix to this notice.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Commerce has made no changes to the Preliminary Results with 
respect to Hyundai. As stated in the Preliminary Results, we found that 
the application of total facts otherwise available, with adverse 
inferences, to Hyundai's weighted-average dumping margin, pursuant to 
sections 776(a) and (b) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the 
Act), was warranted.
    Based on our review of the record and comments received from 
interested parties, we made certain changes to the margin calculations 
for Hyosung.\5\ As a result of these changes, the weighted-average 
dumping margin also changes for the companies not selected for 
individual examination.

Disclosure

    We will disclose the calculations performed to parties in this 
proceeding within five days of the date of publication of this notice, 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b).

Assessment Rate

    Commerce shall determine, and CBP shall assess, antidumping duties 
on all appropriate entries.\6\ For any individually examined 
respondents whose weighted-average dumping margin is above de minimis, 
we calculated importer-specific ad valorem duty assessment rates based 
on the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for the 
importer's examined sales to the total entered value of those same 
sales, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Upon issuance of the 
final results of this administrative review, if any importer-specific 
assessment rates calculated in the final results are above de minimis 
(i.e., at or above 0.5 percent), Commerce will issue instructions 
directly to CBP to assess antidumping duties on appropriate entries.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ In these final results, Commerce applied the assessment rate 
calculation method adopted in Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation 
of the Weighted-Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in 
Certain Antidumping Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101 
(February 14, 2012).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    To determine whether the duty assessment rates covering the period 
were de minimis, in accordance with the requirement set forth in 19 CFR 
351.106(c)(2), for each respondent we calculated importer (or 
customer)-specific ad valorem rates by aggregating the amount of 
dumping calculated for all U.S. sales to that importer or customer and 
dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to that 
importer (or customer). Where an importer (or customer)-specific ad 
valorem rate is greater than de minimis, and the respondent has 
reported reliable entered values, we will apply the assessment rate to 
the entered value of the importer's/customer's entries during the POR.

[[Page 21829]]

    As explained in the previous administrative review of this 
proceeding,\7\ above, we find that Hyosung has provided sufficient 
evidence, based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce's 
successor-in-interest criteria, to demonstrate that Hyosung Heavy 
Industries Corporation is the successor-in-interest to Hyosung 
Corporation. Accordingly, after the publication of these final results, 
we intend to issue liquidation instructions covering entries made by 
Hyosung Heavy Industries Corporation and Hyosung Corporation during the 
POR at the rate established in these final results.\8\

    We intend to issue assessment instructions directly to CBP 15 days

cash deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to 
be 22.00 percent, the all-others rate established in the less-than-

imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

    As explained in the previous administrative review of this 
proceeding,\10\ above, we find that Hyosung has provided sufficient 
evidence, based on the totality of the circumstances under Commerce's 
successor-in-interest criteria, to demonstrate that Hyosung Heavy 
Industries Corporation is the successor-in-interest to Hyosung 
Corporation. Accordingly, we intend to instruct CBP to continue 
collecting deposits from Hyosung Heavy Industries Corporation, and any 
entries of merchandise produced by Hyosung Corporation, at the rate 
assigned to Hyosung pursuant to these final results.\11\

Notification to Importers Regarding the Reimbursement of Duties

    This notice also serves as a final 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 the POR. Failure to comply with this 
requirement could result in Commerce's presumption that reimbursement 
of antidumping duties did occur and the subsequent assessment of 
doubled antidumping duties.

Administrative Protective Order

    This notice also serves as a reminder to parties subject to 
administrative protective orders (APO) of their responsibility 
concerning the return or destruction 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 the 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

    We are issuing and publishing this notice in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act, and 19 CFR 351.213(h) and 
19 CFR 351.221(b)(5). Note that Commerce has temporarily modified 
certain of its requirements for serving documents containing business 
proprietary information, until May 19, 2020, unless extended.\12\
