The signed Issues and Decision Memorandum and the electronic version are identical in content. Changes Since the Preliminary Results Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain changes to the margin calculations for POSCO/PDW and Hyundai Steel. For a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum. Rates for Non-Examined Companies The Act and Commerce’s regulations do not address the establishment of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ‘‘an amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins determined entirely {on the basis of facts available}.’’ For these final results, we have calculated 0.00 percent weightedaverage dumping margins for both Hyundai and POSCO/PDW, and we have not calculated any margins which are not zero, de minimis, or determined entirely on the basis of facts available. Accordingly, we have assigned to the companies not individually examined (i.e., Dongbu Steel Co., Ltd. and Dongbu Steel Incheon Steel Co., Ltd.) a margin of 0.00 percent, which is the average of the margins calculated for POSCO/PDW and Hyundai. Results of Review Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018: jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Producer/Exporter Weightedaverage dumping margin (percent) Hyundai Steel Company POSCO/POSCO Daewoo Co., Ltd ....................... Non-Examined Companies .............................. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:25 Jul 10, 2020 0.00 Disclosure Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed for these final results of review within five days of the date of publication of this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.224(b). Assessment Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after the date of publication of the final results of this administrative review in the Federal Register. Where a respondent reported reliable entered values of their U.S. sales, we calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem assessment rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).6 Where Commerce calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the total sales quantity associated with those transactions, Commerce intends to direct CBP to assess importer- (or customer-) specific assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.7 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is greater than de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), Commerce intends to instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of liquidation.8 Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce intends to instruct CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties.9 For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we intend to assign an assessment rate based on the methodology described in the ‘‘Rates for Non-Examined Companies’’ section, above. Consistent with Commerce’s assessment practice, for entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by POSCO/PDW, Hyundai Steel, or the non-examined companies for which the producer did not know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, we intend to instruct 0.00 0.00 Jkt 250001 PO 00000 6 See 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). 7 Id. 8 Id. 9 See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).

These cash deposit requirements, when imposed, shall remain in effect until further notice. Notification to Importers This notice 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 POR.

Memorandum and the electronic version are identical in content.

Changes Since the Preliminary Results

    Based on our analysis of the comments received, we made certain 
changes to the margin calculations for POSCO/PDW and Hyundai Steel. For 
a discussion of these changes, see the Issues and Decision Memorandum.

Rates for Non-Examined Companies

    The Act and Commerce's regulations do not address the establishment 
of a rate to be applied to companies not selected for individual 
examination when Commerce limits its examination in an administrative 
review pursuant to section 777A(c)(2) of the Act. Generally, Commerce 
looks to section 735(c)(5) of the Act, which provides instructions for 
calculating the all-others rate in a market economy investigation, for 
guidance when calculating the rate for companies which were not 
selected for individual examination in an administrative review. Under 
section 735(c)(5)(A) of the Act, the all-others rate is normally ``an 
amount equal to the weighted average of the estimated weighted-average 
dumping margins established for exporters and producers individually 
investigated, excluding any zero or de minimis margins, and any margins 
determined entirely {on the basis of facts available{time} .''
    For these final results, we have calculated 0.00 percent weighted-
average dumping margins for both Hyundai and POSCO/PDW, and we have not 
calculated any margins which are not zero, de minimis, or determined 
entirely on the basis of facts available. Accordingly, we have assigned 
to the companies not individually examined (i.e., Dongbu Steel Co., 
Ltd. and Dongbu Steel Incheon Steel Co., Ltd.) a margin of 0.00 
percent, which is the average of the margins calculated for POSCO/PDW 
and Hyundai.

Results of Review

    Commerce determines that the following weighted-average dumping 
margins exist for the period September 1, 2017 through August 31, 2018:

------------------------------------------------------------------------
                                                       Weighted- average

Hyundai Steel Company................................               0.00
POSCO/POSCO Daewoo Co., Ltd..........................               0.00
Non-Examined Companies...............................               0.00
------------------------------------------------------------------------

Disclosure

    Commerce intends to disclose the calculations performed for these 
final results of review within five days of the date of publication of 
this notice in the Federal Register, in accordance with 19 CFR 
351.224(b).

Assessment

    Pursuant to section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.212(b), 
Commerce shall determine, and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) 
shall assess, antidumping duties on all appropriate entries of subject 
merchandise in accordance with the final results of this review. 
Commerce intends to issue assessment instructions to CBP 15 days after 
the date of publication of the final results of this administrative 
review in the Federal Register.
    Where a respondent reported reliable entered values of their U.S. 
sales, we calculated importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem 
assessment rates by aggregating the dumping margins calculated for all 
U.S. sales to each importer (or customer) and dividing this amount by 
the total entered value of the sales to each importer (or customer).\6\ 
Where Commerce calculated a weighted-average dumping margin by dividing 
the total amount of dumping for reviewed sales to that party by the 
total sales quantity associated with those transactions, Commerce 
intends to direct CBP to assess importer- (or customer-) specific 
assessment rates based on the resulting per-unit rates.\7\ Where an 
importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem or per-unit rate is 
greater than de minimis (i.e., 0.50 percent), Commerce intends to 
instruct CBP to collect the appropriate duties at the time of 
liquidation.\8\ Where an importer- (or customer-) specific ad valorem 
or per-unit rate is zero or de minimis, Commerce intends to instruct 
CBP to liquidate appropriate entries without regard to antidumping 
duties.\9\

    \8\ Id.
    \9\ See 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
intend to assign an assessment rate based on the methodology described 
in the ``Rates for Non-Examined Companies'' section, above.
    Consistent with Commerce's assessment practice, for entries of 
subject merchandise during the POR produced by POSCO/PDW, Hyundai 
Steel, or the non-examined companies for which the producer did not 
know that its merchandise was destined for the United States, we intend 
to instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the all-others rate, 
if there is no rate for any intermediate company(ies) involved in the 
transaction.\10\

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following cash deposit requirements will be effective upon 
publication of the notice of final results of this administrative 
review for all shipments of the subject merchandise entered, or 
withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the date of 
publication, as provided by section 751(a)(2)(C) of the Act: (1) The 
cash deposit rate for Hyundai, POSCO/PDW, and other companies listed in 
the final results of review will be equal to the weighted-average

antidumping duties.
