For a full description of the methodology and analysis underlying the preliminary application of AFA, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. A list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is included as an appendix to this notice.

Duty Order; 2018-2019

AGENCY: Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, 
Department of Commerce.

SUMMARY: The Department of Commerce (Commerce) preliminarily finds that 
sales of emulsion styrene butadiene rubber (ESB rubber) from the 
Republic of Korea (Korea) were made at less than normal value during 
the period of review (POR) September 1, 2018 through August 31, 2019. 
We invite interested parties to comment on these preliminary results.

DATES: Applicable July 1, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Eliza Siordia, AD/CVD Operations, 
Office V, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade 
Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue 
NW, Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482-3878.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Background

    On November 12, 2019, Commerce initiated the administrative review 
of the antidumping duty order on ESB rubber from Korea in accordance 
with section 751(a) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act).\1\ 
This review covers seven producers/exporters of subject merchandise.\2\ 
On December 13, 2019, Commerce selected LG Chem, Ltd. (LG Chem) as the 
sole mandatory respondent for this review.\3\ On January 13, 2020, LG 
Chem notified Commerce that it would not participate in this 
administrative review.\4\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 61011 (November 12, 2019).

(ESBR) from Korea: LG Chem's Decision to Stop Participating in AD

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

    On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled deadlines in all administrative 
reviews by 50 days, thereby extending the deadline for these results 
until July 21, 2020.\5\ For details regarding the events that occurred 
subsequent to the initiation of the review, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.\6\

(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Scope of the Order

    The product covered by this order is emulsion styrene-butadiene 
rubber from Korea. For a full description of the scope, see the 
Preliminary Decision Memorandum.

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a) of the Act. Pursuant to section 776(a) and (b) of the Act, 
Commerce has preliminarily relied upon facts otherwise available with 
adverse inferences (AFA) for LG Chem, because this respondent notified 
Commerce that it would not participate in the review.
    For a full description of the methodology and analysis underlying 
the preliminary application of AFA, see the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum. A list of topics included in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum is included as an appendix to this notice. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is made available to the 
public via Enforcement and Compliance's Antidumping and Countervailing 
Duty Centralized Electronic Service System (ACCESS). ACCESS is 
available to registered users at https://access.trade.gov. In addition, 
a complete version of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum can be 
accessed directly at http://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/. The signed and 
the electronic versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are 
identical in content.

Rates for Non-Selected Companies

    In accordance with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal 
Circuit's decision in Albemarle,\7\ we are applying a rate based on the 
rate preliminarily applied to LG Chem in this administrative review 
(i.e., 44.30 percent) to the companies not selected

[[Page 39535]]

for individual examination. This is the only rate determined in this 
review for an individual respondent, and thus, it is appropriate to 
apply this rate to the non-selected companies under section 
735(c)(5)(B) of the Act. For a detailed discussion, see the Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries covered by this 
review.\8\ 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.\9\ If the preliminary results are unchanged 
for the final results, we will instruct CBP to apply an ad valorem 
assessment rate of 44.30 percent to all entries of subject merchandise 
during the POR from LG Chem and the companies which were not selected 
for individual examination.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
    \9\ See section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act.

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 each specific 
company listed above will be equal to the dumping margin established in 
the final results of this review; (2) for previously-investigated 
companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit 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, 
or the original less-than-fair-value (LTFV) investigation, but the 
manufacturer is, then the cash deposit rate will be the rate 
established for the most recent segment for the manufacturer of the 
merchandise; and (4) the cash deposit rate for all other manufacturers 
or exporters will continue to be 9.66 percent, the all-others rate 
established in the LTFV investigation.\10\ These deposit requirements, 
when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice.

antidumping duties.
