Appendix I—Scope of the Investigation The merchandise covered by this investigation is certain tobacco cigarettes, commonly referred to as ‘‘4th tier cigarettes.’’ The subject cigarettes are composed of a tobacco blend rolled in paper, have a nominal minimum total length of 7.0 cm but do not exceed 12.0 cm in total nominal length, and have a nominal diameter of less than 1.3 cm. These sizes of cigarettes are frequently referred to as ‘‘Kings’’ and ‘‘100’s,’’ but subject merchandise that meets the physical description of the scope is included regardless of the marketing description of the size of the cigarettes. Subject merchandise typically has a tobacco blend that consists of 10% or more tobacco stems. Subject merchandise is typically sold in packs of 20 cigarettes per pack which generally includes the marking ‘‘20 Class A Cigarettes’’ but are included regardless of packaging. 4th tier cigarette packages are typically sold in boxes without a rounded internal corner and without embossed aluminum foil inside the pack. Both menthol and non-menthol cigarettes and cigarettes with or without a filter attached are covered by the scope of this investigation. Merchandise covered by this investigation is currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under subheading 2402.20.8000.

AGENCY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On July 15, 2019, based on timely requests for review, in accordance with 19 CFR 351.221(c)(1)(i), we initiated an administrative review on certain carbon and alloy steel cut-to-length plate from Italy.1 This review covers seven producers and/or exporters of the subject merchandise. Commerce selected two companies, NLMK Verona SpA (NVR) and Officine Tecnosider s.r.l. (OTS), for individual examination. The producers and/or exporters not selected for individual examination are listed in the ‘‘Preliminary Results of the Review’’ section of this notice. On January 9, 2020, Commerce extended the preliminary results of this review by 119 days, until May 29, 2020.2 On April 24, 2020, Commerce tolled all deadlines in administrative 1 See Initiation of Antidumping and Countervailing Duty Administrative Reviews, 84 FR 33739 (July 15, 2019). 2 See Memorandum, ‘‘Carbon and Alloy Steel Cutto-Length Plate from Italy: Extension of Deadline for Preliminary Results of 2018–2019 Antidumping Duty Administrative Review,’’ dated January 9, 2020.

Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are certain carbon and alloy steel hot-rolled or forged flat plate products not in coils, whether or not painted, varnished, or coated with plastics or other nonmetallic substances from Italy. Products subject to the order are currently classified in the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) under item numbers: 7208.40.3030, 7208.40.3060, 7208.51.0030, 7208.51.0045, 7208.51.0060, 7208.52.0000, 7211.13.0000, 7211.14.0030, 7211.14.0045, 7225.40.1110, 7225.40.1180, 7225.40.3005, 7225.40.3050, 7226.20.0000, and 7226.91.5000. Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the merchandise subject to this scope is dispositive.4 the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this notice. Preliminary Determination of No Shipments One company under review, Lyman Steel Company (Lyman), filed a statement reporting that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to the United States during the POR.5 We were able to confirm Lyman’s claim with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).6 Consequently, we preliminarily determine that Lyman had no shipments during the POR. Consistent with its practice, Commerce finds that it is not appropriate to preliminarily rescind the review with respect to this company but, rather, to complete the review with respect to it and issue appropriate instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.7 Preliminary Results of the Review As a result of this review, we preliminarily determine that the following weighted-average dumping margins exist for the respondents for the period May 1, 2018 through April 30, 2019: interested parties within five days after the date of publication of this notice.9 Interested parties may submit case briefs to Commerce no later than 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.10 Rebuttal briefs, limited to issues raised in the case briefs, may be filed no later than seven days after the time limit for filing case briefs.11 Parties who submit case briefs or rebuttal briefs in this proceeding are encouraged to submit with each argument: (1) A statement of the issue; (2) a brief summary of the argument; and (3) a table of authorities.12 Case and rebuttal briefs should be filed using ACCESS.13 Pursuant to 19 CFR 351.310(c), interested parties who wish to request a hearing must submit a written request to the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, U.S. Department of Commerce, filed electronically via ACCESS within 30 days after the date of publication of this notice.14 Hearing requests should contain: (1) The party’s name, address, and telephone number; (2) the number of participants; and (3) a list of issues to be discussed. Oral presentations at the hearing will be limited to issues raised in the briefs. If a request for a hearing is made, Commerce intends to hold the hearing at a date and time to be determined.15 Parties should confirm the date, time, and location of the hearing two days before the scheduled date. An electronically-filed document must be received successfully in its entirety by ACCESS by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time on the established deadline. Commerce intends to issue the final results of this administrative review, including the results of its analysis of issues raised in any written briefs, not later than 120 days after the date of publication of this notice, unless otherwise extended.16 Methodology Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 751(a)(1)(B) Weightedand (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as average amended (the Act).

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. Commerce’s ‘‘reseller policy’’ will apply to entries of subject merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the allothers rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.19 Further, if we continue to find, in the final results, that Lyman had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, we will instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries that entered under their AD case number (i.e., at that exporter’s rate), or at the allothers rate, if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) involved in the transaction.

dated concurrently with, and hereby adopted by, this notice 
(Preliminary Decision Memorandum).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Methodology

    Commerce is conducting this review in accordance with section 
751(a)(1)(B) and (2) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act). 
Export price and constructed export price are calculated in accordance 
with section 772 of the Act. NV is calculated in accordance with 
section 773 of the Act.
    For a full description of the methodology underlying our 
conclusions, see the Preliminary Decision Memorandum. The Preliminary 
Decision Memorandum is a public document and is on file electronically 
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 https://enforcement.trade.gov/frn/summary. The signed and electronic 
versions of the Preliminary Decision Memorandum are identical in 
content. A list of the topics discussed in the Preliminary Decision 
Memorandum is attached as an Appendix to this notice.

Preliminary Determination of No Shipments

    One company under review, Lyman Steel Company (Lyman), filed a 
statement reporting that it made no shipments of subject merchandise to 
the United States during the POR.\5\ We were able to confirm Lyman's 
claim with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP).\6\ Consequently, 
we preliminarily determine that Lyman had no shipments during the POR. 
Consistent with its practice, Commerce finds that it is not appropriate 
to preliminarily rescind the review with respect to this company but, 
rather, to complete the review with respect to it and issue appropriate 
instructions to CBP based on the final results of this review.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \5\ See Lyman's Letter ``Certain Carbon and Alloy Steel Cut-to-
Length Plate from Italy; Lyman Steel Company's Certification of No 
Sales, Shipments, or Entries,'' dated August 14, 2019.

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

    \16\ See Section 751(a)(3)(A) of the Act.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of the administrative review, Commerce shall 
determine, and CBP shall assess,

[[Page 44285]]

antidumping duties on all appropriate entries.\17\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \17\ See 19 CFR 351.212(b).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Where the respondent did not report entered value or reported 
amounts based on average data, we calculated the entered value in order 
to calculate the assessment rate. Where either the respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is zero or de minimis within the 
meaning of 19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), or an importer-specific rate is zero 
or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate 
entries without regard to antidumping duties.
    For the companies which were not selected for individual review, we 
will assign an assessment rate based on the average \18\ of the cash 
deposit rates calculated for NVR and OTS, excluding any which are zero 
or de minimis or determined entirely based on adverse facts available. 
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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \18\ This rate was calculated as discussed in footnote 5, above.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Commerce's ``reseller policy'' will apply to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by companies included in these 
final results of review for which the reviewed companies did not know 
that the merchandise they sold to the intermediary (e.g., a reseller, 
trading company, or exporter) was destined for the United States. In 
such instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at 
the all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate 
company(ies) involved in the transaction.\19\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \19\ For a full discussion of this practice, see Antidumping and 
Countervailing Duty Proceedings: Assessment of Antidumping Duties, 
68 FR 23954 (May 6, 2003).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Further, if we continue to find, in the final results, that Lyman 
had no shipments of subject merchandise during the POR, we will 
instruct CBP to liquidate any suspended entries that entered under 
their AD case number (i.e., at that exporter's rate), or at the all-
others rate, if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.
    We intend to issue liquidation instructions to CBP 15 days after 
publication of the final results of this review.

Cash Deposit Requirements

    The following 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 the exporters 
listed above will be equal to the weighted- average dumping margin 
established in the final results of this review, except if the rate is 
less than 0.50 percent and, therefore, de minimis within the meaning of 
19 CFR 351.106(c)(1), in which case the cash deposit rate will be zero; 
(2) for companies not participating in this review, the cash deposit 
rate will continue to be the company-specific cash deposit rate 
published for the most recently completed segment; (3) if the exporter 
is not a firm covered in this review, or the original less-than-fair-
value (LTFV) investigation, but the producer is, then the cash deposit 
rate will be the cash deposit rate established for the most recently 
completed segment for the producer of the merchandise; and (4) the cash 
deposit rate for all other producers or exporters will continue to be 
6.08 percent, the all-others rate established in the LTFV 
investigation.\20\ These deposit requirements, when imposed, shall 
remain in effect until further notice.

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 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.

Notification to Interested Parties

    We are issuing and publishing these results in accordance with 
sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the Act.

    Dated: July 16, 2020.
Jeffrey I. Kessler,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
